*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!
***As a special offer for the holiday season, you’ll receive a $10 UCBC gift certificate when you purchase your tickets on site at any of our locations beginning Dec. 5th.***
