Urban Chestnut 8 Pack Sampler!!!

Let the new Urban Chestnut Brewing Co. variety pack, the Belgian Brew Box, help make the transition from winter to spring even easier. 

Urban Chestnut 8 Pack Sampler!!!
Mercator (Flemish Sour) - Gerardus Mercator was an actual renaissance man; philosopher, mathematician, cartographer… crafting the world map of 1569. And like this Flemish Red, which went from brewhaus, to fermenter, to various oak barrels, to finishing tank… Mercator, too, spent much of his life aboard many vessels.
ABV: 6.3%
IBU: 15

Wittewijven (Belgian Golden Ale) - Tales of Wittewijven, or “wise women”, date back to the 600s. Some say they were healers, others say they were pranksters. We’ve captured the Wittewijven contradiction, quite intentionally, with our Belgian-Style Golden Ale – refreshing taste & aroma… sneaky little finish.
ABV: 8.9%
IBU: 28

Geiles Bier (Belgian Pale Ale) - We brewed this Belgian-style Pale Ale to celebrate the tenth anniversary of a local St. Louis farmer’s market and as such, we knew we had to make something unique. To accomplish this (and to honor local farmers) we incorporated a small amount of corn into the grain bill, adding a subtle, sweet smoothness to the spicy hop and yeast character of this Pale Ale, making it truly a Geiles (awesome) Bier!
ABV: 5.6%
IBU: 25

De Bockle (Belgian Ale) - Ah there once was a Belgian from Uccle, who liked to eat frites with his broth full of cockle. And though he was from near Ghent, and liked his grain well spent. His brewing ability matched his name of De Bockle. (This beer though is actually pretty darn good).
ABV: 11.0%
IBU: 26
