*As of 3/20/2019
Spring: Pale Ale
ABV 5.5% / IBU 35 / SRM 6
The aroma is full of sweet orange and citrus notes, while the malt remains well hidden by the hops. Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Bright orange greets the tongue before transitioning into piney bitterness and lingering maltiness.
Hillcrest: Peated Dry Stout
ABV 4.5% / IBU 40 / SRM 25
Rich and sweet peat smoke dominates the aroma, with notes of roasted barley. Mouthfeel is light with a dry finish. The initial flavor is of malty sweetness before exploding with smokieness across the palate. Lingering flavors of roast and smoke interplay leaving a sweet, dry taste at the back of the tongue.
Cross: Dark Saison
ABV 5.5% / IBU 35 / SRM 6
A collaboration with the 8-Bit Bros Podcast. Aroma is rich and malty with notes of honey. Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Rustic flavors of earth and hay from the yeast play with black pepper before giving way to floral citrus for a experience that is complex but well balanced.
Quincy: Barrel-aged kettle sour
ABV 7.5% / IBU 5 / SRM
Aroma is tart with notes of stone fruit. Mouthfeel is crisp with medium carbonation. Flavor starts sour, passing through notes of stone fruit, red wine, and tannins before closing with a smooth, clean finish.
Aromas of chocolate and deep roast, balance notes of rich malt. Heavy body with a creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of coffee and chocolate conspire with malty sweetness to hide the heat of the alcohol, creating a balanced & quaffable beverage that finishes with a mild roast astringency.
Dewey: Kettle Sour
ABV 4.5% / IBU 5 / SRM 1
The aroma is tart with hints of perfume. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Dry citrus and a mild botanical bitterness greet the tongue, unfolding into a complex blend of fruit, flower, and earth before concluding with a crisp, clean finish.
ABV 8% / IBU 25 / SRM 15
Lagered for 60 days. Aroma is bready with a hint of noble hop spice. Thick bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet with notes of burnt toffee and mellow caramel. Surprisingly easy drinking with a touch of alcohol heat on the finish.
A firkin is a cask used by British brewers for delivery of cask-conditioned beer to the pub. A firkin holds a quarter of a barrel (9 Imperial gal; 10.8 US gal, 41 l). A firkin was originally coopered from wooden staves bound with iron hoops, but is now more commonly made of stainless steel or aluminum. Like all proper casks, it has a hole in one of the curved sides, to which a wooden or plastic bung (“shive”) is fitted when the cask is filled. There is a smaller hole in one of the flat ends, or “heads,” of the cask, which is also bunged. The bung is knocked out by the tap when the cask is broached. Although other sizes of cask are also used, the firkin is by far the most common.
A beer engine, also known as a hand pump, is a uniquely British dispensing device that is specifically appropriate for traditional cask-conditioned ales. The beer engine is a piston pump that allows the casks to be kept in a cooler cellar below the bar and the beer to be pulled or drawn up to the bar. Cask-conditioned beers have lower carbonation than standard beers because they are usually served at about 11°C to 14°C (approximately 52°F to 57°F). If a cask-conditioned ale were served through a standard dispensing system, the gas pressure and colder temperature would increase the carbonation of the beer, which would then lose its ideal balance of flavors.

As the seasons change, so does our taste in beers. Dual Citizen Brewing Company offers two different seasonal beer programs to keep up with changing tastes and weather patterns alike.
SEASONAL LAGER PROGRAM
Dual Citizen Brewing Company brews four different traditional lagers throughout the year. Each of our lagers is fermented for a minimum of 4 weeks before being cold-conditioned for a minimum of 8 weeks. This long process allows for the lager yeast to properly clean up the off-flavor-producing byproducts that occur during fermentation, creating a crisp, clean tasting beverage. There is no shortcut or substitution for this process and we feel that our patience and commitment to quality speaks for itself when you drink these beers. Ask your beertender about our current lager offering!
Spring- Myrtle: Doppelbock
Summer- Pelham: Pilsner
Autumn- Raymond: Oktoberfest
Winter- Cromwell: Baltic Porter
SEASONAL PALE ALE
In a nod to our Dual Citizenship in the Twin Cities; Saint Paul and Minneapolis, Dual Citizen Brewing Company names all of our beers after street names located in both municipalities. When we discovered the seasonal streets in Northeast Minneapolis, we decided to have some fun with the idea. We wanted a beer that could be similar each time but change enough to reflect the seasons, so our Seasonal Pale Ale program was born. Each of the 4 beers uses the same base malt, Minnesota-Grown Pale Malt from Maltwerks in Detroit Lakes, while featuring a different set of hops or adjuncts meant to reflect the character of the season. These beers are released on the Winter and Summer Solstices and Spring and Fall Equinoxes respectively and only available throughout the season.
