The 2nd Anniversary of Urban Chestnut Brewing Company is Saturday, January 26th.

In addition to the beer, the mascot Wolpie the Wolpertinger, will be once again making his grand appearance to help with the release of the namesake UCBC beer. This year, they will re-release their 2012 creation: Winged Nut on Acid, a 9% ABV chestnut ale that has been aging for over a year on Kentucky Bourbon Barrels.
Tickets are $30 and include a commemorative mini-stein, samples from over 20 of St. Louis’ distinguished craft brewers, live music and an opportunity to personalize a shirt/other apparel thanks to Art Farm STL. There will also be prizes awarded to the Best Costumed Wolpertingers.
