Urban Chestnut Grove Brewery & Bierhall

Urban Chestnut has reinvented the classic German bierhall for its mammoth Grove Brewery. As a local craft-brewing institution, patrons come to the facility, first and foremost, for the beer, though the food gives the suds a run for their money. Chef Andrew Fair draws upon his German heritage and time living in Europe to create a menu of traditional German cuisine that has been updated so as not to be a caricature. Offerings consist of small plates, sandwiches and wurst boards with highlights such as salt cod brandade beignets, poutiness and dumplings of the moment. The indulgent “strammer max” sandwich is a must-try. Thinly shaved Black Forest ham, luscious Comté cheese and an over-easy farm egg are piled atop butter rye bread for a German version of a croque madame. Urban Chestnut features a selection of excellent G&W sausage served with rotating side dishes such as marrow beans and sauerkraut. It’s the ideal food for a day of drinking.
