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!!
