Urban Chestnut Brewing Company is an unconventional-minded yet tradition-oriented brewer of craft beer. They like to call their unique brewing philosophy Beer Divergency—a "new world meets old world" brewing approach wherein Urban Chestnut contributes to the revolution of craft beer with artisanal creations of modern American beers, and pays reverence to the heritage of beer with classically-crafted offerings of timeless European beer styles.
Their sentiment of reverence to old world beer is of second nature to their German-born brewmaster, Florian, who views the chestnut as a symbol of the tradition and heritage of beer. Many European brewers have for centuries utilized chestnut trees to protect their biergartens and bierkellers (shallow underground beer cellars) from the sun.
