February 2012. Visited mid afternoon on a brisk Friday. There was just a small crowd This space is neat and unique, clearly an old garage converted for the purpose, with the brewery behind the roll up doors and a nice dining area and bar off to the side. Furnished with cool old reclaimed tables and such, the pub is warm and inviting. The staff was quick to offer words on the dizzying array of house beers available and a free sample or two. Each beer is served in the appropriate glassware -- or in the case of the zwickel, in an authentic German stieinkrug. The beers were a bit hit and miss, but mostly hits. They do have a limited selection of small foot plates, but we didnít try anything. Ultimately, think this is a great neighborhood watering spot and a great addition to a STL brewery scene thatís quickly becoming world-class. Brewery #572.

Something was strange about this Sunday night in St. Louis, as in nobody was out anywhere. Urban Chestnut had only two other patrons. Iím sure they get busy other nights as it is a beautiful piece of property. After you walk by the brewing equipment you enter a spacious, wooden interior. The back room has a free old school dartboard and foosball table. Outside is a very large beer garden directly across the street from a church. The beer is excellent as well. There is a good variety of styles including a few unorthodox things. We enjoyed our visit and my buddy took a 1L growler of hopfen for later enjoyment.

Visited on a Friday, late afternoon. I only had time for a quick beer, and 3 growler fills, though I would have loved to spend hours. The space is bright, modern cafe overlooking a really advanced sparkly clean brewhouse. The crowd seemed to be local folks just getting of work. The beer was great (sessionable, perfectly made beers). The vibe was great and the service was top notch. Canít wait to return.

newer looking place on the outskirts of downtown, production brewery is next door, pretty big one at that... brick minimalist building, local artwork dons the walls, the Urban Chestnut colors, logo and tap handles are very cool... nice selection of 13 drafts, mostly German styles so not really my thing but well crafted... the bar tenders were nice and knowledgable... worth trying out

Itís hard to not want to love this place. Lots of fun, young people with German beers crafted by a brewer that studies at Weihenstephaner. Unfortunately, many of the beers were pretty dirty during my visit. I will say that this place has a chance to be world class if they can clean up there beers a bit.

St. Louis has a new gem in Midtown. Urban Chestnut is on Washington between Compton and Grand, just a few blocks north of SLUís athletic complex and east of the theatres. The building is an old auto garage, and the high ceiling in the brewing area allows for an impressive setup. There are huge windows in front with a very cool UCBC neon at the top. Limited parking is available in front but there is plenty on the streets. The pub area is on the right, and features an exposed brick interior with dark wood furniture; there are a couple glass doors leading to the brewing operation. There are 10 taps up front and 5-6 more around the side of the bar, and lately UCBC has kept 15 different beers on at once. The beers are very good, with a Reverence series devoted to traditional beers brewed to style and a Revolution series devoted to seemingly classic styles with a wrench or two thrown in. There is some variance between glasses, so not every beer is the best value ($4-$5.50 usually, depending on the beer). Always well-staffed, with friendly service. The menu is limited- pretzels, sausage, chips, cheese, et al. Shirts and other merch are already on sale on a rack in the bar. St. Louis has a lot of brewpubs Iíd recommend if you have time, but this one is a must-visit.

A really nice brewpub with a huge outdoor area, perfect for whatever you are looking for. Self serve but efficient. Selection is their own brews which are decent, but nothing special. I didnít eat, but it looked like meat and cheese plates were the specialty. Prices were decent. Overall a nice place to hang out, but nothing particularly stands out.

Stopped in for brews on a Saturday night. They have a great patio, but I found a seat at the bar. Had 2 sets of beer flights and all the beers were above average. 13 of their beers on tap specializing in German styles but I found their american offerings to be very solid as well. Had the pretzel bites which were nothing special. Service was hit or miss throughout the night but was good overall. Flights of beer were a very good value. Drove 24 miles to get here from my hotel and it was well worth the trip. Awesome brewery.

LOVE This place! as some of the previous raters say, your not going to find any big beers here-mostly german and american session brews. Most of their beer is fantastic-i cant complain with this place. they have a couple of VERY attractive watresses (as of March 2011) that were very friendly and conversational. I really dig this place-could be my favorate small brewery in STL!

A really cool place with a German bierhall feel on the inside and a nice biergarten outside. Bartenders were friendly and helpful on my visit. They had 15 taps available with some bottles to go. Four beer samplers available. I did not sample the food on my visit and prices were good. A really nice brewpub.
