Urban Chestnut To Build St. Louis' Largest Craft Brewery

Urban Chestnut Brewing Company (UCBC) has announced plans to significantly expand its brewing operations in the City of St. Louis.

UCBC announced on Monday its plans to build a new brewery in “the Grove” Neighborhood located off of Manchester Blvd. The brewery will occupy the former Renard Paper Company building at Manchester and Taylor. UCBC will be partnering with Green Street St. Louis (Green Street), a real estate firm specializing in redevelopment of underutilized commercial properties into LEED certified buildings.

Urban Chestnut was founded in 2010 by two former Anheuser-Busch employees Florian Kuplent and David Wolfe. Their current 20-barrel brew house, taste room and biergarten on Washington Ave. in Midtown will remain open as a test brew operation, as well as to package and sell smaller batch beers.

The new location will feature a 70,000 square-foot production brewery, packaging facility, warehouse and indoor/outdoor retail taste room. When complete it will be the largest microbrew facility in St. Louis, eclipsing Schlafly’s Maplewood Bottleworks in terms of size and brewing capacity.
