Dux Central: 'Separating Men from the Boys since 1978'

At the Dux, our commitment to the art of beer is staunch, evident in our choice to pour brews into 'Imperial Pints' (also known as English pints). In contrast to our counterparts who opt for American pints, we proudly offer a 20% increase in beer volume, providing ever-lasting sips and enjoyment!

Our extensive array of brews, include our signature Dux beers such as the Pale Ale, the Dux Hazy, Larger, and Ginger Tom plus an assorted selection of local boutique craft beers and timeless classics.
