royaleJust about every Tuesday evening, The Royale hosts an event where they guide you through the wonderful world of beer styles, breweries and beer history. This week they’ll be featuring an event they call: “Urban Chestnut Release Party” Here’s a quick synopsis of what will be on tap:

“Urban Chestnut Brewing Company (UCBC), a self-professed unconventional-minded yet tradition-oriented brewer of craft beer, which opened its taste room in late January, has finally (after a whopping 2 plus months) begun distributing draught beer to bars and restaurants in the St. Louis area (MO only for now).”

We’ll be celebrating the local release of UCBC’s flagship beers with the brewers themselves on Tuesday, April 12th as we tap Zwickel and Winged Nut, two beers that represent this newest St. Louis brewery’s philosophy of “Beer Divergency”. The Zwickel is a quenching and balanced unfiltered lager brewed in the tradition of brewmaster Florian Kuplent’s native Bavaria. Winged Nut, on the flip side, represents the brewery’s adventurous spirit: malty, yeasty, and brewed with milled chestnuts, this beer provides a sumptuousness that is hard to categorize but easy to imbibe.


The brewers will be on hand to converse about their labors of love, sign autographs, and maybe provide a few tastes of other selections you’ll just have to hoof it to Midtown to enjoy otherwise.

The Royale is one the finest pubs in St. Louis to enjoy a beer and they employee some extremely passionate and extremely knowledgeable people.  This is a great opportunity to not only enjoy some great beer, but to learn about just some of the great styles of beer and breweries we have available in St. Louis.
