From Eric at Zink Distributing:
This week I’m excited to talk about Urban Chestnut, one of my new favorite breweries. Urban Chestnut out of St. Louis has been available in Indianapolis since 2010 but only in limited quantities. With their new production facility close to being open and a new focus on supporting the great city of Indianapolis, we’re now able to offer an extended version of their lineup. 
Year Round:
Zwickel (Classic Bavarian Style Lager) - Our flagship lager, pronounced ‘zv-ick-el’, is an unfiltered, unpasteurized, German classic that finishes as a smooth-drinking, vitamin rich (from the yeast), naturally cloudy bier.
Winged Nut (Chestnut Ale) - We affectionately refer to the first beer in our Revolution series of modern, American craft beer, as our unusual little bird. It’s a little on the flighty side @ 5.7% ABV, and it’s a little on the wacky side because we brew it with finely milled chestnuts (genus castanea …for you nut freaks), Willamette hops, and we ferment it with a Bavarian Weissbier yeast strain. All of these nuances contribute to its ‘nutty’ personality. 
STLIPA (Double IPA) - We pronounce it “sta-leep-ah”; you pronounce it how you like. STLIPA, which is the acronym for St. Louis India Pale Ale, is actually a DIPA (Double or Imperial IPA, double the stats of a traditional IPA). We hope it’s a “sleepe” that you’ll include in your set of favorite DIPA’s from one of the best beer cities in the world, St. Louis.
Seasonal and/or One-off:
Erlkonig (Pale Wheat Dopplebock) - This Maifest special is sweet, soothing, and a deceptive delight. So much so that it may deceive thy sight. Should you start to see visions of Elf King fame, heed the warnings from where this beer gets its name. Spelled out clearly in the Goethe poem…Hold on tight to a loved one, and head for home.
Pilgrim 7 (Seven Grain Pale Ale) - Harvesters rejoice! In celebration of the seasons of “Reap‟ and “Thanks‟ we introduce this bounty for your table – a sessionable ale brewed with seven (that’s right) seven different grains; Oats, Sorghum, Wheat, Barley, Emmer, Spelt, and Rye. The result…a tasty, “cornucopia of flavors‟ ale.
Dorfbier (Munich Dunkel) - The Dunkel style is what many refer to as the original beer of Munich and the surrounding countryside and villages (Dorf in German) of Bavaria. This everyday beer ranges in color from amber to dark brown, depending on the amount of Munich and roasted malts used. Ours is a deep reddish brown with a rich malty flavor. The sweetness of the malt is balanced by the use of another Bavarian friend…the Hallertau hop…in this specific case Hersbrucker grown near Wolnzach, Hallertau. 
Harwood Myth (English Brown Porter) - This English-style, brown porter has a nicely rounded, roasted malt flavor. You may detect some cocoa and /or caramel surrounding the bitterness on the sides of your tongue.
Stammtisch (German Pilsner) - Stammtisch is an informal group meeting held on a regular basis – more directly translating to ‘table for regulars’. Our Stammtisch was brewed to celebrate this idea of community and socializing. It’s a traditional German pilsner featuring a blend of Hallertau and Strisselspalt hops, and we think it’s the perfect accompaniment to any friendly gathering. Help us make it a ‘regular’ around here! 
Teufelspakt (Schwarzbier) - Our German black lager honors Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the author of “Faust”, who is rumored to have sustained his life during a bout of sickness by drinking only this style of beer. Some may say that you would have to make a deal with the devil to survive solely on beer.
