Sertãozinho Weiss Retail Release Party!

Enlightenment Series
Urban Chestnut  Kaldis Coffee Sertãozinho Weiss....$7.49 / pint
"Sertãozinho Weiss - The very specific purpose of our first coffee-bier collaboration was to unequivocally break the convention of traditional heavy-roasted, dark coffee beers. To do this we've taken a berry-nosed and earthy Brazilian coffee (Sertãozinho) and merged it with a traditional, clove and banana-estered, Bavarian Wheat Beer (Weissbier). The result – a stimulating infusion marked by overtones of sweet and tart fruit balanced by a subtle-but-not-bitter roast of rich tannins." -- label 

Next Friday (8/17) is the release official release party and tasting

Urban Chestnut & Kaldi's Announce Beer & Coffee Collaboration Series  

St. Louis, MO—
Urban Chestnut Brewing Company, a St. Louis' craftbeer brewer, and Kaldi's Coffee Roasting Company, the renowned St. Louis specialty coffee roaster, are excited to announce a new series of coffee beers.

Entitled the "The Enlightenment Series"this new endeavor from Kaldi's and Urban Chestnut is a collaboration between the two local artisans to purposefully create coffee beers that go beyond the traditional dark and heavy-roasted styles that are most commonly brewed.

As the label on the bottle reads, The Enlightenment Series is "A coffee - bier collusion intended to inform and enlighten the collective of passionate coffee AND beer drinkers to the possibilities of 'bean-meets barley'."

​"Our initial intent is to create some unique beers that really accentuate the complex flavors of both the coffee bean and the intrinsic beer style. We hope to expand both the notion and the enjoyment of coffee beer." says, Florian Kuplent, Brewmaster & Co-Founder of Urban Chestnut.

​Josh Ferguson, co-owner of Kaldi's, added, "At some point, we'll certainly play around with some heavier roasts and darker beers, but just like with craft beer there's a lot of taste complexity in a coffee bean that many people have yet to discover.  The first beer in our series demonstrates this perfectly."

The first beer in the series is a blend of a Brazilian coffee, Sertãozinho, and a traditional Bavarian Weissbier.  The end product is a complexly flavored, lighter-bodied beer with subtle notes of fruit and coffee.

Urban Chestnut Brewing Company (UCBC) is an unconventional-minded yet tradition-oriented brewer of craft beer. Founded in early 2011 and located at 3229 Washington Avenue in the Midtown Alley are of St. Louis,it brews both small batches of artisanal, modern American beers (their Revolution series) and classically-crafted European styles (their Reverence series).  The founders are Florian Kuplent and David Wolfe.  Kuplent is a German born and trained brewmaster with extensive experience atboth small breweries, worldwide, and with the world's largest, Anheuser-Busch InBev.  Wolfe is a 20-year beer industry memberwho was with Anheuser-Busch as wellprior to joining Kuplent in founding Urban Chestnut.
