WHITE WEDDING
American Wheat | 5% | 16/23oz | 6/8

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.


ORANGE CALYPSO
White IPA | 6.2% | 16/23oz | 7/9

This hoppy American Wheat beer presents an immediate punch of pungent citra and calypso hops on the nose with a tangy wheat backbone and a spicy orange peel characteristic on the finish.

We have another new version of Blonde on Blonde! This easy drinking Blonde-style IPA is balanced with bitterness and juicy hop characteristics. Mosaic and Vic Secret hops provide notes of ripe tropical fruit and blueberry while Simcoe contributes a balanced of earth and pine.

COSMIC OKAPI
Hazy IPA | 6.2% | 16/23oz | 7/9

Cosmic Okapi is a single hop IPA inspired by imaginary fruits and moon nectar. 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! 🍊🍍


BRASS BONANZA
New England IPA | 6.2% | 16/23oz | 7/9

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!


STARLIT
New England IPA | 5.5% | 16/23oz | 7/9

You've been asking, and Brewmaster Jeff delivered!
This New England India Pale Ale was brewed with loads of flaked oats and wheat, and then massively dry hopped for a soft mouthfeel, big aroma, and loads of haze. Complex notes of lemon, pineapple, and mango pop out of this can with a restrained bitterness to accentuate the bright, juicy characteristics of Citra, Galaxy, and Amarillo hops.


SUPERBLOOM!
Triple IPA | 10.5% | 10oz | 7

IPA brewing at City Steam has been turned up to 11 with Bloom, and is now turned up to 21 (plato) for Super Bloom! Loads of Citra in the kettle, and loads of Galaxy in the dry hop create dank floral characteristics along with ripe tropical fruit flavors. Intense throughout but with a dry finish, this triple IPA is truly top shelf.


*NAUGHTY NURSE
Amber Ale | 5% | 16/23oz | 6/8

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

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.


*STEAMPUNK PORTER
Vanilla Porter | 5.5% | 16/23oz | 6/8

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
