Trinity is a great place. They have high quality food and the cooks do it right. My favorite is the Griz! and if they've added the Buffalo Mac to the menu then you got to try it. The owner, whose root is in brewing, knows his craft and they make many great beers but he knows other guys brew great beer too. So he also offers the best beers from around the world for his customers to enjoy. I'm living in Germany for the next few years but look forward to returning home and sitting again at that funky counter.
Rocky Mountain Brewery may not have the ambiance of the chain breweries but it has the most amazing staff (many of whom are volunteers who believe in the brewery and the owners expertise). I bought a Brew on Premise for my husband for Fathers Day and we had a wonderful time brewing beer, the experience has led us to brew at home for years now. The fact that the place was bustling the whole time we were there told us that these people know their beer, and we weren't wrong. I have NEVER had a beer I didn't enjoy from this place. Duane is a fun loving and genuine person who speaks only the truth about beer and that is refreshing. I am so glad I found this amazing place to talk and learn about beer. Thank you RMB for your dedication!
Trinity is unique, and Colorado Springs is lucky to have it. First off - go here for the beer. The food is good, yes, but the beer is really the entire reason to experience Trinity. (I think right now they have a Cucumber-Basil Saison on tap - if you aren't into anything more adventurous than a Bud Light, you probably aren't going to enjoy this brewery.)
For the people who rate Trinity poorly; I'm not sure what they expect out of a microbrewery. Trinity has been rated in the top 25 breweries in the world; again, for a community as small as the Springs is; we're lucky to have a place like this. I don't know anywhere else in the city where I can go get beers as wildly different as Trinity offers with appetizers ranging from thick, sliced bacon slices served with maple syrup to vegan fajitas (which are amazing; and I'm not vegan!) - anyway... five stars.
We literally shopped homebrew places when we started making our own beer/wine many years ago.
Then we ventured into Rocky Mtn Brewery and haven't gone elsewhere since!
The staff and atmosphere are about as down to earth as you can get and they also have super food available i.e. pulled pork sandwiches made on site from BZ BBQ.
They host beer and wine events w/food and whether your a beginner or a novice, these guys won't let you down!!

This old school building in a residential neighborhood is a cool setting. Good food and great atmosphere.
Ate there again today. The place continues to improve; I give it 4 stars as I reserve 5 star status for places like the Broadmoor.
My wife's Fish and Chips were nothing short of awesome, the 3 large pieces were each a good 8-inches long and thick, the crust was crisp and not oily like so many places, and the french fries were addictive with their amazingly thin coating, staying crisp to the end.
My caesar salad had great grilled shrimp that were perfectly done.
The chocolate torte dessert is enough for several people and a must for chocolate fans.
Lastly, one way I judge eateries is by the quality of their restrooms, and CMB has about the nicest, cleanest restrooms I've ever seen.
You won't be disappointed here. Go.
I have not been there in some time but when I was I really appreciated all the Belgian ales on tap. That is very hard to find. If you appreciate Belgian ales you can do worse.
Tejon- I usually like your reviews but it seems like it's personal with you. You have too many entries on here and it's watering down your comments. Just my thoughts.
Jason is kind of a hippy dude, I met him when he was the brewmaster at Bristol's. He certainly has talent.
Really, how can you say much bad about Rock Bottom? This location is a pretty decent example of the chain, with a fairly talented and creative brew master. It's your standard slightly upscale pub, with appetizers ranging from seared Ahi tuna to regular bar staples like nachos and wings.
It gets a little crazy in the bar area some nights simply because it's so darn busy and there aren't that many places to go out here on the East side... if you can get the attention of the bartenders, most of them quickly and competently can make simple drinks. If you ask for anything complex, you'll be explaining how to make it.
Beer prices are great during happy hour for the fresh, brewed-on-site beer. Food quality ranges depending on the night; I've ordered steaks here and received both excellent cuts of meat and some that I sent back after losing my appetite... and that was for their most expensive fillet which came to my table fatty and overcooked.
I'd stick with the burgers and standard bar food (pizza, nachos, etc) over anything too fancy.
The beers are always good, food could use some improvement.
comfortable atmosphere not all bar tables, open to 11, kobe hamburger cooked right, beer battered fish and chips are great. They have bbq but havent tried it .
The beer is 5 stars. 5 stars for the house brews and 5 stars for the large variety of excellent guest brews. I always have a fovorite or two to drink and a new one to sample. Food os goof, not great. They are not trying to be a restaurant...they ae supplementing the beer. Service has been friendly.
Fritz sounds like hes upset about Andy leaving phantom or something. A salad with one green? I'm calling BS on that one! I absolutely love the grilled salmon salad. Always done right. I've had positive experiences each time Ive eaten here, so it's worth checking out.
Very good place. We had an excellent evening. Not sure what Fritz is talking about. The beer was great and so was the food.
Beer drinker? You'll be in heaven at Trinity. Don't drink beer? That's OK, try the Pear Cider. Their food has greatly improved since they first opened. Lots of veggie-friendly options, or for the meat eaters, a bacon basket! Make sure to check out their calendar online. They have lots of events, art shows, music and such going on each month.
I would have given them 5 stars a few weeks ago but then the menu change. I have visited Trinity since the opening and thought the concept and menu worked, once a few kinks were worked out. But now it seems the concept was tweaked and so has my opinion of Trinity. Gone are the stuffers and several vegetarian de-lites (so the wife is not too excited about going there anymore). The new menu is ok and the stuffers have been replaced by a collection of the new food cliche of 'sliders'. These small 'sandwiches' lack the excitement of their former selves. My buffalo slider with carmelized onions sounded great but the 3 little charred 'meat patties' were tasteless and dry, needless to say my friend was not inspired by the BLT sliders. He had the original sandwich from the menu 2 weeks prior and claimed it was the "the best blt ever!". At least they still have the beer selection.. Change is not always good, especially these changes..
Beer is good but service usually really sucks. I avoid the overpriced food and the owner. I do like the diverse guest tap offerings but they too are overpriced. Have a couple cold Flos and go down the road to more friendly people.
Trinity has great beers! and the guest taps are bar none. However, the owner is not a very great guy, I have seen him stumbling drunk in the bar harassing other patrons and kicking people out that have done no wrong. He will try to pick fights with others who aren't in 100% compliance with his philosophy on beer. I have brought a lot of friends here and have never been so disappointed in an owner and a business. I really LOVED this brewery but the lack of professionalism and poor service from the bar staff has stopped me from coming here.
Horrible service. Been here twice, and both times I was ignored by the waitstaff for over 15 minutes. Would have left but was meeting people there. Took forever to get food out. The food is good- if you're into local, organic, vegetarian stuff, but the prices are a bit steep and the portions are very small. Was shocked by seitan gyro did not come with fries for the price.
The menu is huge, which is usually a bad sign. The food was average - nothing special. Typical soul-less national chain.
Went here to celebrate my birthday Feb. 2010. Ambience was unique, we sat on couches in the back b/c there was a group of us. I wasn't impressed with the sliders I ordered and would have liked to see a more diverse menu overall. This seemed to be the consensus of the group. If I just wanted to go for drinks, I might consider going back as their beers were good, but a bit pricey.
