Wolpertinger 2020

Urban Chestnut is turning nine and the Wolpertinger is flying in from the forests of Bavaria to help us celebrate once again!

Wolpertinger* is Urban Chestnut Brewing Company’s annual, anniversary beer festival celebrating the spirit & community of craft brewers in and around the St. Louis community. This year’s festival features:

-UCBC limited releases, including our anniversary brew, Wolpertinger 2020 – a Coffee Barleywine brewed with Kaldi’s Coffee Roasting Co., and beers from The U.R.B. Experimental Series
-Our special guest brewery: Karmeliten Brauerei from Straubing, Germany
-Beer from 45+ local breweries
-Live music
-Food for purchase, including U.R.B. pizza-by-the-slice
…and more surprises!

General admission tickets are $40 each and include a commemorative glass and unlimited beer samples. VIP Experience tickets are $75 each – details below.

VIP Experience: Join UCBC Brewmaster and Co-Founder, Florian Kuplent, and Brewmaster, Thomas Eichenseher, from Karmeliten Brauerei for a meet-and-greet sampling at The U.R.B. from 11:30AM – 1PM. Be the first to try the selection of beers from our guest brewery, Karmeliten, as well as special Urban Chestnut & U.R.B. Experimental Releases. In addition to commemorative fest glass and unlimited samples at Wolpertinger 2020, your ticket will also include a brunch buffet of U.R.B. breakfast pizza as well as sweets/baked goods. Tickets are $75 each, but hurry because we only have a limited supply!

*For the unacquainted, the Wolpertinger is a mythical German creature, similar to the American Jackalope, rumored to live in the Bavarian Black Forest. Witness accounts usually describe this nocturnal creature as having the body of a rabbit accompanied by wings, fangs, and antlers. Here at Urban Chestnut, we like to view this storied creature as a symbol for the Craft Beer Community in and around the St. Louis area. Just like the Wolpertinger, displaying distinctive traits from a variety of species, the breweries of St. Louis, who have their own distinctive niches and identities, come together on a rare afternoon in January to form one community of St. Louis brewers… And legend has it… that once you’ve enjoyed enough samples at the festival, you just might spot the actual beast!
