mustíve had upwards of 13 or 14 diff urban chestnut beers on tap. unfiltered pilsners, smoked, hefeweizen, bavarian ipa, session ipa, zwickel, all kinds of neat stuff. fast service. laid back atmosphere. old brick walls. some dude playing a guitar, though it wasnít distracting. dart board in back. awesome beer, had a great time. excited to return. happy to hear they are bottling. bunch a well made, to style, relatively low abv beers. a breath of fresh air.

comfortable chairs, friendly staff, good selection of beers across a range of styles. Proper glassware. Only thin that would make it better is a real food menu (they do have some heavy snacks available), and a little less loud.

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.

Very knowledgebale staff. Very good selection of brews/samples. Food was local, limited selection, but not bad for finger foods. Very good sampler, would visit again. Looking forward to Hopfen Festival at end of March 2011. Met one of the Founders, nice to talk with about history of area and building. Really hope they go a long ways.

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.

This brewpub is clean, has plenty of seating, and is reasonably priced. For a Saturday afternoon, they were fairly busy but not packed, which gave the place a nice feel. Not a bad brew on tap. The food looked good, but we didnít have any entrees. Iíll be going back on my next trip to St. Louis!

Small little taproom adjacent to the brewery offering sausage and cheese platters, flatbread, pretzels and brats. 11 beers on tap, really friendly beer knowledgeable staff. Interesting beer menu offering classic styles as well as their modern riffs on the styles.

Strebs  (149) St. Louis, Missouri | May 10, 2011| Updated September 18, 2011
This place gets as close to a perfect setting for a brewery taproom as is possible. Under the Reverence mantel, the German hefeweisen was as good as Iíve ever had in the states. The recipe for the beers that are part of the Revolution series have been tweaked just enough to make them very interesting. I canít wait to see how the biergarten will look this summer. It appears that the brewmasters wonít be going down the well travelled path of "big" beers like overly hopped IPAs or Imperial Stouts. This place is highly recommended as something different from the majority of recently opened brewpubs in the US.

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!

Nice new brewpub not far from Six Row brewing. Stopped in for a sampler near closing time and had great service. The staff stopped by to ask how we liked things and were pretty informed and interested. Decent selection of beers, nine house brews on this visit and most were pretty good. They had an interesting menu, but I was too late for food and never made it back here on this visit as I had planned.
