As part of our year-long 10th-anniversary celebration, we’re hosting twelve (12) three-course dinner and beer pairings!

January 26, 2021 marked ten years since we opened our doors in 2011. To celebrate, we're hosting specifically-themed, three-course dinners celebrating both our German heritage and our St. Louis roots.

One Wednesday a month, Chef Matt and our talented culinary staff will team up with our brewers, and a guest chef, to put together a special menu featuring inspired and creative dishes paired with new beer releases.

Theme: A Trip to Cologne (Köln)

Kölsch bier served in its traditional style and popular German fare!

Reservations are recommended, but not required. Space is limited, so if you want to save your spot, click on the button to RSVP. All advance reservations include your first (2) Stangen of Urban Kölsch. Food will be available for purchase separately.

KÖLSCH BEER SERVICE

Kölsch is a highly attenuated, top-fermenting beer originating in Cologne, Germany. The breweries in Cologne have a unique way of serving this traditional style that is unlike any other. It is served in a tall, thin glass called a Stange ("pole" or "rod"). The server ("Köbes") carries several, filled Stangen in a Kranz ("wreath"), a circular tray resembling a crown or wreath. Rather than waiting for the drinker to order a refill, the Köbes immediately replaces the empty Stange with a full one, marking a tick on the coaster under the Stange. When the drinker no longer wants another refill, they place the coaster on top of the empty Stange and pays for the number of beers marked on the coaster.

We are excited to offer a form of this traditional service at our Anniversary Dinner on Mar. 3rd! The service will be modified a bit due to pandemic serving limitations, but the spirit will remain the same. Here's how it'll work:

  • After your party is seated, your server will greet you with the same number of Kölsch beers and a coaster for each person.
  • A separate coaster will be placed at one end of your table upon which your server will mark with a tick the number of full Stangen they have served.
  • To indicate you'd like a refill, simply place your empty Stange at the end of your table near the coaster.
  • Our roaming Köbes will replace the empty Stangen with the same number filled Stangen.
  • When you no longer want a refill, you'll place your final empty Stange at the end of the table topped with your individual coaster.
