We believe beer can be many things to many people. It can be a reward at the end of a long day or an accessory to a lazy summer afternoon. It can be an excuse to sit and talk with old friends or assist in the development a relationship that is new. It can even be a transcendental experience. But sometimes, it is best when, a beer is just a beer. We believe quality starts with simple ideas, good ingredients and clean execution. If you build from that foundation, it will speak for itself. From there, a beer can be anything you want it to be.

Firkin and Cask Program
Did you know that Dual Citizen Brewing Company features a different firkin on our beer engine all of the time? Our cask program allows us to infuse different flavors into your favorite beers from our menu. We add fruit, hops, spices, and other adjuncts to a production beer in a special keg and allow it to naturally carbonate and absorb the flavors over a two week period. Cask beers traditionally have a slightly lower carbonation than draught beers and are served at 55℉. The combination of warmer temperature and lower carbonation allows the nuances of the flavors to fully present themselves, providing a completely unique drinking experience. Each firkin is a one of a kind creation and once it’s gone, it’s gone. Check out our list of upcoming firkins to make sure that you don’t miss out on any of these limited edition beers!
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 – Helles Lager-Luck of the Loons
Summer – Dry-hopped Pils- Essential Industry
Summer: Hoppy American Wheat
Autumn: Fresh Hop Pale, Ryeteous Vibes
Winter: Barleywine, Winter Warmer
