Don’t Miss The Last Day Of Wintermarkt At Urban Chestnut Brewing Company
If you missed Urban Chestnut Brewing Company’s Wintermarkt on Dec. 3rd or Dec. 10th, this weekend is your chance. This coming Saturday, 12/17, shoppers looking for local treasures can rejoice at the multitude of vendors who call St. Louis home. It’s the perfect place to pick up last-minute specialty gifts for friends and family members, brought to you by talented makers right here in the Midwest.
The last day of the event will be held at UCBC’s Midtown Brewery & Biergarten located at 3229 Washington Ave., where attendees can enjoy traditional German eats, shopping brought to you by St. Louis-area vendors, hot drinks and beer specials. This year’s Wintermarkt will also feature live music and burning fire pits to keep warm. Below are three featured vendors who will be selling their wares at the event this year.
We can’t think of a better gift for the craft beer lover in your family. With Twinkle Brews, founder Mollie Anderson has built a line of delicious-smelling candles infused with specific notes found in classic craft beers. Scents include bourbon, stout, chocolate orange peel, hibiscus and more. Anderson focuses on regional flavors developed by local breweries such as 4 Hands, Wiseacre Brewing and Urban Chestnut, of course, for a result that is truly sensational. Don’t believe us? Check one out for yourself this weekend.
Lynnae Tanner Ruff of Lady Grey Beads sure knows how to create a gorgeous piece of specialty jewelry. Starting with the finest materials, including pearls, Venetian glass and Swarovski crystals, Ruff crafts beautiful, innovative pieces unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere, perfect for a soon-to-be bride, bridesmaid, special event, or anyone looking for the perfect accessory to complete an outfit.
Where else can you find a specialty cutting board made from Missouri wood in the shape of a pineapple, a painter’s palette, a slice of bread or the state of Missouri itself? All of the above and more are available amidst the creations of St. Louis-based wood crafting by Julie and Bill Newberry. Or you could peruse the selection of whiskey-tasting paddles and pint glass caddies. Don’t miss the irony of the charcuterie board in the shape of a pig.
