Urban Chestnut Brewing Company
UCBC is known for both our modern, American craft beers and reverential, European beer styles. Our Grove Brewery & Bierhall (4465 Manchester) and Midtown Brewery & Biergarten (3229 Washington) locations are open 7 days a week. Sustainability wise, UCBC works to reduce our carbon footprint by recycling all qualifying materials, composting all biodegradable waste, and donating all of our spent grain to local farmers. Our brewing equipment allows us to reuse water that is normally lost in the brewing process to chill hot wort and to heat up brewing water, which also conserves energy. Finally, both UCBC locations feature solar power arrays, large windows to provide natural lighting, and LED lighting to reduce our energy needs. We are proud to say all of these efforts allowed our Grove Brewery & Bierhall to be awarded Missouri’s first and only LEED Certified Brewery! Urbanchestnut.com.
