Re: “Trinity Brewing insults Colorado Springs, social-media responds with fury

The beer is very average, some brews are better than others but no real standout as their awards clearly indicate. The food is not good at all (sweet potato fries are a shadow of what they offer at Nosh, and the burger we've tried was so dry it was not really edible), the staff is aloof and owner recently sounded off on social media regarding the need to leave Colorado Springs as we are clearly too uneducated to appreciate his amazing talents. To this we say ASAP!

After trashing the community that helped build his tiny brewery the owner has declared he may be moving. I earnestly hope he closes up shop here and tries to move up to Denver where the competition for craft beer is far tougher than the Springs and their average swill will be completely dismissed.

Instead of going to Trinity support the many excellent and loyal local breweries both old and new who will appreciate your patronage and are in this community to raise the bar on our culinary and cultural offerings as well as be a positive advocate for the people responsible for their success. The only person clearly lacking an education in humility and customer service is the owner of Trinity and he does not deserve the modicum of success the people of Colorado Springs have granted him.

For myself and many friends who enjoy sampling the recent boom in craft beers all over the city we are officially finished with Trinity. There are so many wonderful choices in this town for craft beer, don't support the one sour grape owner who doesn't appreciate your business and thinks the Springs isn't worthy of his mediocre offerings.

Re: “Couple says bank account closed for cannabis, gun group seeks new law and more

"Colorado group Guns for Everyone (gunsforeveryone.com) is pushing for a state initiative that would not disallow marijuana users from receiving concealed-carry licenses. The current application asks if the gun owner is an "unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana.""

Sorry, but it is a federal law that a person who is an "unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana" cannot possess or purchase a firearm. I have seen quite a few people be turned away by firearm dealers when the people came in reeking of pot.

Re: “Trinity brewer Jason Yester apologizes for comments

Very glad to see that Paradox beat them. Paradox makes some really interesting and unusual beers - some sour, some not so sour, but all of them are very tasty. If this guy thinks the locals are too dumb for his beer, then maybe he does need to move to Denver. I'm sure there's way less competition up there anyway. Right. I drink beer because it tastes good, not because it won some stupid medal. I don't think this guy even gets that.

I drink beer because it tastes good, not because it won some stupid medal. As a Woodland Park resident, I'm so happy that Paradox beat them. Maybe he is right. They should move to Denver. Way less competition up that a way, right? Doofus.

Re: “Trapped in the dying mall

Dude, I shredded every wall in my house with throwing stars when I was a kid. Sadly, my career as a ninja never really took off, though.

Re: “Trapped in the dying mall

How are things at the Citadel? Haven't been in there in decades. Used to deliver their mail in '72 when I was a relief carrier out of Station A Post Office.

Re: “Locals meet on Ferguson

How about justice for Gilbert Collar, a white, unarmed 18-year-old under the influence of drugs was shot and killed Oct. 6, 2012, by Officer Trevis Austin, who is black, in Mobile, Alabama.

This was not in the National Media,
because they did a "White out" on this story.

Pass it on.....
