*Maifest is one of mankind’s oldest traditions, the celebration of nature’s bright reawakening after Winter’s long, cold darkness. At some point, what was an ancient pagan festival took on Christian religious significance and is now a colorful, joyous part of history and culture that is celebrated annually, not only in Bavaria, but in many towns around the world.

** Bockbiers, essentially strong beers of German origin, are traditionally the ideal biers to enjoy in Bavaria during the brief Spring transition (the period between the cold, snowy Winters and the balmy, sun-drenched Summers) along the northern Alps. We’ll be featuring FOUR bockbiers at our Maifest…a Weizenbock – Maximillian, a Doppelbock – Oxnbräu, a Belgian Style Bock – De Bockle and of course our annual Maibock – Urbanator.

*** In 2012 Urban Chestnut opened our Midtown Biergarten; a large Bavarian-style biergarten lined with German tables, benches and umbrellas. The idea was/is simple: we want to provide an outdoor destination to gather and converse over a beer, a pretzel and/or a brat and to recreate the feel of the communal atmosphere of what has existed in Bavaria for centuries and what was a large part of St. Louis’ Spring, Summer & Fall routine in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
