A family celebration started off great here. I have German background and never been to Germany, so our son-in-law thought this would be fun. It was! Yes, it’s very loud but the place is fun. The beer was good that I tried and the braut...More

Stopped for lunch and was met by a very friendly, informative staff. Great selection of locally brewed beers. We ordered a beer flight to sample several of their beers. None disappointed. We also had a meat and cheese sampler board that was excellent.

The food, flights and service at this location is top notch. The selection of beer is balanced, and the pours for flights are very generous - much larger than you'd find at other breweries.

Smooth Brews, superb beer recipes! We didn't go for the food, my husband had been curious about Urban Chestnut's other beer recipes since tasting the ZWICKEL, and loving it, at so many local establishments. This place DID NOT DISAPPOINT! We enjoyed literally every single beer...More
