So….I wrote the post about Urban Chestnut Brewing Company and I left out the fact that I swiped a coaster. I know….capital offense (at least I left the glassware). And I have been looking at that coaster for the past three days and simply admiring it.
I love the Urban Chestnut logo. The colors are awesome (yellow, red and blue don’t come to my mind when I think of a good color scheme, but they definitely work). The text is readable And…I love the icon of the glass with the “foliage” in it, but I have one question. In the glass, what kind of leaf is that? I showed the logo to a friend of mine at The Logo-Mat (http://thelogo-mat.blogspot.com/) who specializes in these things and he thought it looked like a hop leaf. I, of course, thought (after doing an image search) it looked like a Chestnut leaf (which made the most sense to me). Either way, I think it’s an outstanding example of this new STL brewery’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
For a more concise and informed opinion of the logo, check out Matt’s full review here. I totally agree with him when he says “I’d wear a t-shirt adorned with this logo.” I should have bought one while I was there.
What do you think? Hop Leaf or Chestnut leaf? Does it even matter? Do I get free beer if I win? How about a free shirt? Is there anyone at Urban Chestnut who could field this question?
