Their 1 year anniversary Wolpertinger party was my first visit to the shiny stainless-steel microbrewery, which fills the inside of a huge refurbished old brick garage or firehouse, along with a classy little tap-room restaurant serving all their beers (of course) plus predictable Germanic gastro-pub type food. Servers and bartenders were very friendly and knowledgeable. Cool atmosphere, artwork, merchandise section, clean bathrooms, an all-around cool place. I donít live downtown, so itís off my beaten path, but Iíll definitely make it a destination again. In the meantime, Iíll keep sampling the Urban Chestnut taps around town, and any day now, store-bought bottles!

How have I not rated this? I have been to the original UCBC a number of times and each time is a delight. Not long ago they opened an exceptional beer garden and we love to take our dog there. The beers are always outstanding in their German traditional styles. Flroian is beyond impressive. I love going here. Sometimes parking can be a challenge but not usually. They usually have a little something to eat but not very much and it is more snack kind of food.

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.

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.

Recent visit during the afternoon. Small crowd. Nice service, knew their beer. Nice number of their beers on tap. A flight of four was very reasonable. Did not try their menu. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Well worth the visit.

Visited here as a part of a 9-brewery weekend tour of the St. Louis beer scene. Place was very busy on a Saturday night. They had approximately 12-14 beers on tap when I visited, including an interesting mix of traditional german styles and hybrid american/german styles. It was very cool visiting here, the atmosphere is pretty good. However, I think a lot of their beers are overrated on RateBeer. I thought quite a few of the beers were a little off and needed some work. This was the 5th best brewery in our 9-brewery weekend. It has a fun atmosphere and cool location, but I enjoy the beer at Perennial, Schlafly, and Civil Life more.

Finally got over here as it is not far from work and the hotel and glad I did. They had 13 beers on tap and offered flights of 4 for $5. All the beers were really good, even in styles that I donít particularly enjoy much. They even had a barley wine aged in rye whiskey barrels that was excellent. Pretty busy for a Tuesday night and service was very good. Cool joint, would definitely come back.

Stopped in here when I was visiting friends. Chill place with a good variety of beers on tap. Quite with decent pricing and very well made beer. Service is solid as well. Definitely going to be a must visit whenever Iím in StL.

Wide variety of beers on tap with good german table fare that primarily us more for snacks than anything. The place is very nice for outdoor seating. The staff is very friendly. The beer is fair to good depending on what you get, with particular liking of their Stl IPA. This is a place to get a large variety of german style beers in particular. Worth checking 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.
