Urban Chestnut Brewing Company (UCBC)- is a small, craft brewery located in the city of St. Louis, MO. We began our brewing operations with our state-of-the art, 20 bbl brewhouse in January 2011. UCBC beers are available in the local market- on draught, and in bottles. Our taste room and large outdoor biergarten are a bit different than the traditional brewpub. In some ways, we are similar to a wine bar- UCBC is a casual place... to hang out and experience a selection of local craft beers accompanied by small plates of cheeses, meats, and other little eats that pair well with beer. In other ways, Florian, our German-born brewmaster, has added some 'touches' to bring a little bit of Bavaria to UCBC by; utilizing authentic German servingware (glasses/steins), importing biergarten tables from Europe, and planting shade-giving chestnut trees.
Apple Pie Cider-
|Hard Spiced Cider-|
Schlafly Hard Apple Cider- is just the right balance of dry, crisp apple flavor with a bit of sweetness in the finish. This is a great beverage akin to a champagne and not as sweet as some of the ciders on the market today. We use a blend of three different cultivars to get the right balance of tartness and sweetness in this cider. Enjoy!

Brick River Cider Company- is St Louis’ first dedicated ciderworks. We are committed to crafting great hard cider made from fresh pressed Midwestern fruit, never concentrate. Brick River Cider is named to honor the connection between the City of St Louis and its connection to the regional rural communities. From its early days St Louis was a major source of brick making, and the rivers carried those bricks in every direction building communities throughout our region. Those bricks remind us that we are all connected, and we continue that tradition today bringing the fruits of the region back to the city, and crafting authentic hard ciders to celebrate with our friends and family. Brick River Cider Company’s mission is to work with regional fruit growers to craft authentic hard cider using only fresh pressed fruit juices. Our ciders range from classic and traditional to bold and innovative, but whatever the style they are all 100% gluten free from fresh pressed regional fruit, never concentrate. We invite you to raise a glass and connect with cider the way it should be.

St James Winery and McIntyre Cider- For more than 40 years St. James Winery has been producing unique regional wines. We make wines that reflect the natural character of each of our grape varieties and of the special place they are grown: the Ozark Highlands. Our hard work in the vineyards and winery has paid off. St. James Winery is consistently one of the top gold medal winning wineries in the country. Our customers’ love of our fruit forward style has made us one of the top selling regional wineries in the United States. While honing his winemaking skills in France, our Executive Winemaker Andrew Meggitt and his wife traveled the country-side touring cideries. Their journey inspired Andrew to craft a premium cider from real fruit juices in the European style. St. James Winery proudly presents McIntyre Cider. Our hard apple ciders have a crisp, clean taste from pure fruit, with no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners, and are naturally gluten free. Available in six-packs at our winery and select retailers, our ciders are perfect for sharing with friends. We know a good thing when we taste it, and so will you. McIntyre Cider: crafted using 100% real fruit juice.

KC Cider- is a great alternative to craft beer and wine. It contains less alcohol than wine (read "drink-ability") while none of the grain bill of beer (read "gluten-monster"). The problem, it's hard to find solid handcrafted cider, especially in the Midwest. The truth - KC Cider Co exists because the crafted culture of Cider has yet to blossom in the Midwest... and we are tired of waiting. KC Cider Co IS NOT the sweet, made from concentrate alcoholic juice you typically find at your local bar. Rather, our making process is inspired by our love for the outdoors and the beautiful oddities of our city. We have fresh pressed, minimal processed, complex, dry, aromatic experiences that are meant for just that - the experience.

Made iwith a blend of locally sourced Jonathan and Golden Delicious apples. |
Missouri The Cyder Market hard cider information for cider makers and drinkers in Missouri.
Missouri (nickname The Show Me State) generally mirrors the demographic, economic and political makeup of America and has long been considered a political bellwether state. Missouri borders eight different states, as does its neighbor, Tennessee. No state in the U.S. touches more than eight states. The agriculture products of the state are beef, soybeans, pork, dairy products, hay, corn, poultry, sorghum, cotton, rice, and eggs. As of 2001, there were 108,000 farms, the second-largest number in any state after Texas. Missouri actively promotes its rapidly growing wine industry. Along with the wine and grapes, Missouri has 47 registered apple orchards and a budding cider industry with 15 cider makers.
Cinder Block (French)- bright, fresh apple flavors and aromas from the local Missouri apples used to make it. It starts with fresh apple flavor and finishes with a sweet but balanced tartness.
|Cinder Block (Cherry)- a French style but finishes with the tartness of a dark Oregon cherry.|
Urban Chestnut Bushelhead Cider-Our brewmaster Florian admittedly hasn’t dabbled in ciders too often. So when he described UCBC’s very first cider, Bushelhead, as estery and a little ’winey’ we weren’t sure if he wasn’t being a bit ’whiney’ himself. So we’ve declared that besides being a cider, "Bushelhead" is a homonym meaning ’winey’, ’strong cider’, or ’whiney’.

Levi Garrison & Sons Country Brewery- previously called the Ninja Moose Brewery owner Scott Falke changed the name in response to a trademark issue. Canada-based Moosehead Breweries, Limited has enforced its name and usage of “moose” in trademark infringement cases with a number of smaller businesses that use the name of the woodland animal in the title of a brewery or beer. “Levi Garrison was my great grandfather,” says Falke. “Levi Garrison & Co. was his sorghum company.” While the moniker change and tribute to the family name is pending, Ninja Moose has another major change in progress: the brewery is expanding and tripling the size of its building. Currently housed in an old brick telephone company building, Ninja Moose Brewery has become a popular destination in the town of Hamilton (pop. 1,800). Numerous residents, travelers across northwest Missouri and craft beer fans have visited the small taproom and one-barrel brewhouse. The taproom retains a small town, communal atmosphere, where local patrons and member of the brewery’s Mug Club sip on beer from a personal, handmade ceramic mug. The tap selection generally features 10 year-round beers and two seasonals. Deacon’s Oatmeal Cream Stout, dry and creamy with a light body, and Second Amendment Amber Ale are two of the more popular beers along with the Farmhouse Ale, Pale Ale and Wheat.
City Market Cider- The city market represents a place where chefs and home cooks come together to show and taste the best flavors in the region. Our brewing team captured this spirit in Boulevard’s City Market Cider. This local blend combines juice from Fuji and Jonathan apples, sourced directly from Sibley Orchard & Cider Mill in Sibley, Missouri. City Market Cider is fermented with our house English ale strain, resulting in a crisp, dry cider with just a touch of sweetness from juice held back for blending. Per independent, third-party lab analysis, City Market Cider meets the requirements (below 20 parts per million) to be considered a gluten-free cider.
Barrel-aged Cider 2016- Our 2016 cider is a blend of pressed juice from Midwest-grown Fuji, Jonathan, Red Delicious, & Golden Delicious apples. The juice undergoes mixed fermentation in wine barrels for one year before blending and bottle conditioning. Our cider is unfiltered and all natural.
Ultra Light Cider- Made from crisp apples, it's the perfect choice for anyone looking for great cider taste that fits their active lifestyle. Naturally gluten free, it's the perfect balance of crisp, light and refreshing.

Twenty years on, our business plan is still almost as simple as our original vision: To make a wide variety of great beers, sell as much as we can in our local market, and throw great parties.
Riverwood Winery- Riverwood Winery's Tasting Room and Giftshop is based in a 1950's era renovated school building located along the east bank of the Missouri River. The building is an example of classic 1950’s style architecture –- single level, flat roof, lots of windows. The building was designed by Joseph Radotinsky, a noted architect in the Kansas City and western Kansas areas. Radotinsky designed several well known buildings, and served as the State Architect for the state of Kansas. From the 1950’s through the early 1980’s the building housed Lakeview Elementary School. After the school closed its doors in the early eighties, the building was purchased by a local chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, (VFW) and used as the VFW meeting hall. An Atchison couple purchased the building from the VFW in the mid-1990’s and it was used as a consignment and antique shop. In 2005, David and Ginah purchased the building for conversion into Riverwood Winery. All small batched wine is fermented, barreled, aged, blended, bottled and hand labeled at our tasting room location.

|So Hopped Right Now- Mosaic, Citra, Ekuanot Hops. This is a delicate bouquet of fruity aromas, citrus mouth-feel, and a slightly bitter finish, made in the style and fashion of the New England style, hazy IPAs, but without the grain bill. This Hop-Infused Cider is a true work of art. There are a few folks doing "hoppy ciders" these days, but you won't find one as balanced and pleasant as ours in the Midwest. We carefully balanced the hops to create a balanced aroma and flavor without taking away from what the cider has to say. ||Prohibition-Style Dry Cider- This cider uses what is locally available, when it is available. This means that every time you pour a tulip of this baby will be a slightly different experience, met with a new consistency, mouthfeel, and even flavor profile. Cider is wine, apple-wine to be exact. Just as your favorite grape-wines change with every vintage, so does cider. We'll keep this page updated with tasting notes for the most recent editions. That way you can still impress your friends when you pick up on that slight hint of banana on the nose due to the naturally occurring fruity oils in the fermentation process (by the way, this is one of the features of the newest edition. You're welcome).||Tart Cranberry-Orange Peel- This tart, fruity compilation has been fun to create. Expect a slight red hue to the cider, a bit of haze, and plenty of pucker to go around! |
Cinder Block Brewery- When we brewed our first batch of beer we never imagined where it would take us. The passion that was created for brewing these unique full flavored beers became intoxicating to all of us. This dream has been 3 years in the making and took a bit of luck and a lot of hard work. It’s hard to believe we started small at our homes and have now grown into our 15bbl facility with a full taproom and barrel aging program. We haven’t forgotten our roots as we continue to focus on unique full flavored beers with plenty of character and a whole lot of attitude. We strive to share a truly unique experience in every glass of Cinder Block Beer.
Perennial Artisan Ales- Our philosophy is to brew beer with the adventurous craft beer drinker in mind—focusing on hand-crafted, small batches of beer, using local, seasonal and organic ingredients as much as possible. Our beers are influenced mostly by Belgian and American craft styles, but the addition of premium ingredients such as fruits, spices or wild yeast strains sometimes causes the beers to defy traditional categories. Our barrel aging program features a wide variety of beers aged in wine and spirits barrels, ranging from a Rye barrel-aged Mexican Chocolate Stout to a wild yeast-fermented Saison aged on Missouri wine grapes in French oak wine barrels. We strive to always achieve balance with each of our recipes, making our beers exceptional with food.
