I finally had the opportunity to try City Steam after a day of a work meeting in a nearby hotel.
The atmosphere is big to begin with, with a bar to the left, a bar to the right, a small patio overlooking a one way street, and then stairs going up, leading to more seating and drinking !
Quality of their beers is good, better than some other brewpubs in CT. Service was very good, staff was familiar with their beers and friendly with the patrons. Selection was above average, I enjoyed the farmhouse ale and the wit bier. No guest beers here, but they have a good spectrum of styles. Food is typical bar fare, will satisfy your hunger. All of this comes with a reasonable value, and thus is worth checking out if you find yourself in Hartford or passing through and thirsty.

During a recent family excursion to Hartford, we visited this brewpub. Located in a beautiful old building, right in the center of town, this is a very inviting brewpub. The architecture, design, decoration, and general feel of the place is amazing. Beer memorabilia and great ambiance are everywhere. The beer selection was deep and varied. I had the Amber, the IPA, and the Stout. All were excellent. The service was professional and light-hearted, and would be worthy of a higher rating other than being a little slow. Food was mostly traditional, although upscale, tavern food. Well made but not really creative. All in all, this is a great brewpub and absolutely worth a visit.
