Grizzly Ridge Kölsch

Available at the Zoo and area retail stores while supplies last!

The Saint Louis Zoo has teamed up with Urban Chestnut Brewing Company to create Grizzly Ridge Kölsch, the first official beer of the Saint Louis Zoo. For every case sold at area retailers, Urban Chestnut will donate $3 to the Zoo to support animal care and conservation work.*

The new beer is named after the Centene Grizzly Ridge, home to our grizzly bears Huck and Finley. Future plans include the release of a new style of beer highlighting a different area of the Zoo in 2020.

*In partnership with Urban Chestnut's local wholesalers: Major Brands Distributing, Grey Eagle Distributors, Donnewald Distributing, and H.W. Herrell Distributing.

The beer made it's debut at our major fundraiser ZOOFARI on June 21, 2019.

The beer is available in draft and cans at select Zoo concessions including Lakeside Cafe, River Camp Cafe, Safari Grill, Laughing Hyena, Cafe Kudu and more. (Ages 21 and up.)

While supplies last, four-packs of 16 oz. cans are available for purchase at Zoo gift shops and in grocery stores and beer retailers in St. Louis city, St. Louis and St. Charles counties and the Metro East area, wherever craft beer is sold.
