Freigeist is back and made at Urban Chestnut

Freigeist is back!
Brewed and canned right here in St. Louis!
Brewed and canned by Urban Chestnut Brewing for Ffreigeist Bierkultur

Freigeist Bierkultur:  The special label of Braustelle, a tiny decade-old brewery in Cologne run by Peter Esser and Sebastian Sauer. Esser -- the brew master -- uses the Freigeist label to create unusual beers, riffing on traditional beer styles to make something interesting and unique.

Freigeist Ottekolong Unfiltered Kolsch...$11.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Ottekelong which in local parlance means, “water from Cologne,” is the basic beer from Freigeist. Based on the local Cologne specialty, Kölsch, Ottekolong is an unfiltered Kölsch-style beer, but with more IBUs than is typical for German Kölsch. Also, because it is unfiltered it isn’t technically legal to call in Kölsch in Germany.

Freigeist Abraxxxas Smoked Weisse Ale...$11.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Esser named Abraxxxas after a character in one of his favorite novels. He says, “Abraxas contains both good and evil, like all human beings. No one is just good or just bad.” With that in mind, he created Abraxxxas, inspired by an old East German beer style called Lichtenhainer, which is a sour wheat beer brewed with smoked malt.

Freigeist Aufschneider Hoppy Hefeweizen Ale...$11.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Generous additions of Cascade and Mosaic hops give this German-style hefeweizen ale its tropical, fruity notes and an extra burst of American-style bitterness.

Freigeist Geisterzug Rhubarb Gose...$11.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Based on Freigeist’s ancient spruced Gose recipe, Geisterzug Quince & Geisterzug Rhubarb feature all the complexity, funkiness, and body of the of the original but go one step further by adding tart & flavorful real fruit & vegetable during fermentation. The resultant brews are incredibly lively, characterful, and thirst-quenching.
