Beer and Comedy: City Steam Brewery and Cafe


Award: Best Brewpub in Downtown Hartford, CT
FA Rating: FF
Price: $$


We were running low on time getting frustrated and tired in this one horse town, everything closed by 5 PM, including the little mall and food court. I was using all of my phone's powers and finally I just gave up and said we probably ought to just go to City Steam Brewery and Cafe. It turned out to maybe be the coolest place we could have found in the area.

Fried Vegetable Dumplings - bing cherry dipping sauce - $5/8
These were great, and the sauce was fun and delicious!

Pool tables! Lots of 'em!




A creamy, frothy stout, one of the several beers they brew right there.

Then I learned that they have comedy shows there every weekend! If I lived in Hartford or wanted to visit for a weekend again, I'd put this place at or near the top of my list.
