STEAM PILS
Pilsner | 6% | 16/23oz | 7/9

A bright golden pilsner brewed with German malts and Czech hops. Mild hop aroma and a crisp finish with delicate notes of toasted grain and lemongrass.

Dortmunder | 5.8% | 16/23oz | 7/9

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.


*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. 


*NAUGHTY NURSE IPA
IPA | 6.5% | 16/23oz | 7/9

Double dry hopped with five different varieties of American hops. Golden in color with light malt character and a slight haze. A clean American IPA that makes an easy food pairing with most of our menu


FIR BABY
Spruce IPA | 7.2% | 16/23oz | 8/10

Fir Baby is a West Coast IPA dry hopped with freshly harvested spruce tips from Colorado. Experience the flavor of the mountains without leaving the barstool!


*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!


WINTER WHITE IPA
White IPA | 7% | 16/23oz | 8/10

This unfiltered IPA was brewed with an emphasis on wheat and spice characteristics. The fruity and citrus character of the hops are accented by the use of lemon, lime, and orange peel, while coriander and ginger give a pop of floral spice.


*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 | 8/10

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.


*NORWEGIAN WOOD
Spiced Dunkel Lager | 6% | 16/23oz | 7/9

A seasonal favorite! A City Steam staple for some years, this is a great drinking dark lager with a touch of cocoa and cinnamon. It’s almost like a chocolate version of cinnamon toast crunch cereal!
At its core, this beer is a classic Dunkel Lager, not at all unlike Uncle Dunkel, which this beer essentially is, but with spice. At the end of the boil, we used organic Dutch Cocoa powder and organic Vietnamese cinnamon.
Pours a nice dark brown-to-black color with a stable head of foam that tends to dissipate rather quickly from the fat content of the cocoa. Nice nose of bitter dark chocolate with cinnamon present, but never overbearing. 


*STEAMPUNK PORTER
Vanilla Porter | 5.5% | 16/23oz | 7/9

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
Imperial Stout | 9% | 12oz | 8

Imperial Stout brewed with smoky/bitter black malts and pungent/piney West Coast hops resulting in an intense dark roast character with notes of herbal and citrusy hops.
Like a cup of espresso with a lemon wedge.
