I timed my visit to coincide with the brewery's 6th anniversary party, so I think I hit the jackpot as far as the beers.

Trinity broke out a bunch of cellared versions of their beers to serve on tap and these are the beers that are really noteworthy.

A 2011 Passed Stout? Effing Phenomenal (4.5/5). Particularly the wine-like character that gave the brew a different element beyond the oak, chocolate, and other barrel-aged qualities (which were still outstanding and delicious).

Chilly Waters 2013 was good (4/5) but I was a bit confused because I had the beer at Falling Rock Tap House and remembered it having some spice there, but not at the brewery. Either way, a gem of a beer.

Other standouts from the cellar were the Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta wild ale (4.5/5) and the Pappy Legba wild ale (4.5/5). Trinity does a damn good job with sour beers. For the 6th anniversary, I was able to buy a number of these beers at a $4 discount on 750 mL bottles (word is they're doing away with this format of bottle or the artwork or something).

As for the regular Trinity lineup, it was cool to get the generous sampler with about ten core beers all served in mini-snifters and with some delicious cheese. Trinity has this "Kill the pint glass" motto that I appreciate and which are sentiments I share. However, the majority of the beers were very run of the mill. Of the regular line up, the DIPA was fair (3.5/5) as was the Flo IPA (same score). The Farmhouse saison was the best of the lot (4/5), with the rest being 3 out 5s or lower.

Still, the service was good, the sours are great, and oooooh, that mac n' cheese they brought back for the anniversary was out of this world. I got the one with bacon bits and it was divine.

Overall, a great brewery to visit, but I'd suggest skipping a sampler if it's your first visit and go straight to the barrel-aged and sour beers.

Atmosphere was ok, hard to tell really since it was a slow weekday afternoon, but it was pleasant enough and amiable to families.

Quality high - plenty of tasty beers, including several cask and a nitro selection, with lots of bottles to go (inc. sours and wilds) and a variety of guest beers too.

Service was fine, no problems there. They aimed to please and gave out samples of their various beers.

Food was good but snack menu was a bit limited and the prices for dinner were a bit higher than average for an establishment of this type.

The place had a urban/hipster feel to it which is OK, and wow the selection. Did a flight and thought their beers were good to great, but not quite yet at the pinnacle of things. Considered buying a few bottles but decided against it for the price... although for the particular styles they weren't too out of order, more so my cellar is getting too big and now I buy for great value. I probably will visit this place again and recommend it to anyone who hasn't been there. Did not try any food, not sure if there is any.
