American Light Lager | 4.3% | 16/23oz | 7/9

Our lightest offering in color, calories and carbs. An easy-drinking American light lager brewed with 100% malt and no adjuncts.


*EXPORT
Dortmunder Lager | 5.8% | 16oz | 7

A classic Dortmunder/Export-style German Lager. Brewed with imported malts & hops, this beer is smooth & easy drinking. Gentle cracker/biscuit malt notes balanced out by a spicy & herbal hop bite.


STEAM PILS
Pilsner | 5.7% | 16/23oz | 7/9

A bright golden pilsner brewed with a choice selection of German malts and noble hops. Features a fruity and earthy hop aroma with a clean finish and a gentle bitterness.


CITY STEAM KOLSCH
Kolsch | 4.5% | 16/23oz | 8/10

This Kolsch-style ale is brewed with German Pilsner malts. A touch of wheat is added to create a light and crisp ale with a slightly floral and lemony hop character, making this beer the perfect choice for those hot summer days. 


WHITE WEDDING
American Wheat | 5% | 16/23oz | 7/9

A long-time Wheat Ale produced here at City Steam.
Brewed with Pilsner and a good percentage of Wheat Malts to produce a hazy and creamy ale with a gentle tang. At the end of the boil, we add bitter orange peel and ground coriander for elements of floral aromatics and citrus.
Updated in 2021 with a yeast strain designed for this style of beer called “American Wheat," this beer finishes dry and clean like American Ale, but with more emphasis on wheat and spice characteristics.
Compares to Blue Moon and Shocktop.


***COMING SOON!!!!*** PINK & WHITE
Grapefruit Wit | 5% | 16/23oz | 7/9

A refreshing, fruity, Belgian Wheat Ale brewed with a twist! While traditionally made with orange peel, we opted for whole pink grapefruit in the kettle, along with grapefruit zest in the fermenter. Also spiced with coriander, this wit has a juicy citrus character and a smooth finish from the use of un-melted wheat and oats.


*JUNGLE CRUSH!
Modern IPA | 7% | 16/23oz | 8/10

A house favorite: Low malt profile with massive additions of Citra, Simcoe, Cascade, and Mosaic yield a crisp and citrusy IPA. Punchy nose and full flavor, welcome to the Jungle!


BRASS BONANZA
New England IPA | 6.2% | 16/23oz | 8/10

Brass Bonanza IPA is hazed liquid bliss. Brewed true to style, our flagship New England IPA trumpets all the right notes with a saturation of succulent tropical flavors, bright and juicy aromatics, a silken mouthfeel that hugs the palate and a tease of finishing bitterness. As Hartford's oldest brewery, crafted this to honor the icons that helped to define the "Hart of New England." In our celebrated capital community scene, we cheer and bleed blue and green!


COSMIC IMPRESSIONS
Hazy New England IPA | 6.2% | 16/23oz | 8/10

Cosmic Impressions finds beauty in simplicity with this single hop New England IPA, leaving a clear view of the brewmaster's heart through a psychedelic window.
It squeezes Sabro aroma hops for its unique character of coconut, tropical white wine, and pineapple-orange juice. Plus, it’s super hazy, which only adds to the yum factor! 🍊🍍


*NAUGHTY NURSE
Amber Ale | 5% | 16/23oz | 7/9

Brewed for a spicy, slightly bittersweet finish in the traditional English manner. Delicate malt caramel-like sweetness paired with traditional English hops. Our flagship ale!


BLUEBERRY + GUAVA TWIST
Kettle Sour Ale | 4.3% | 16/23oz | 6/8

We have Blueberry + Guava Twist back on tap! 🫐
This kettle sour ale features a generous dosage of blueberry and guava purée for a juicy, sweet balance to the intense tartness from the lactobacillus. A touch of lemon peel on the kettle, vanilla bean in the fermenter, and a dry hopping of mosaic come together to create a unique blend of sour and tropical fruit flavors.


THE ERADICATOR
Imperial Dark Lager | 8.8% | 10oz | 7

A strong, dark brown lager using roasted German malts for a rich, bready malt flavor with notes of coffee, caramel, and dark fruit. It has a slightly smoky finish.

Vanilla Porter | 5.5% | 16/23oz | 8/10

Brewed with Chocolate malt, dark wheat, and carabohemian malts for a complex malt character with notes of dark caramel, bittersweet chocolate, and a slight roast. Vanilla compliments these flavors without overpowering, providing a warm, comforting quality.


ALAN'IS MORE STOUT
