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.

Trinity has quality beers, but they are expensive and have awful service. Awful service pops up on several reviews, and I am very surprised that they are completely oblivious to it. I have had sporadic visits to Trinity over 6 years, and without fail, every visit has me waiting a really long time to be served my first drink and my drink stays empty for quite some time before being refilled. I was finally motivated to write this review after I went there to fill a growler this weekend. Great Storm was closed, otherwise, I would have been there. Anyway, I came in and went directly to the bar. There were 4-5 other people sitting at the bar. There were at least 4 employees milling around the bar, but I can't say if they were all responsible for the bar. I stood there for 10 minutes waiting for anyone to acknowledge my presence with an empty growler clearly sitting in front of me on the bar. It was very evident what exactly it was I needed. I shouldn't have waited around so long, but I did because I knew it was finally time to write some reviews.

They were also out of the first in-house beer I ordered, but I know that happens occasionally.

Service has always been terrible. Their guest selection has gone down hill due to Jason's falling out with Elite Brands. Jason also has damaged his brand by stating that the locals don't know jack about beer. Colorado Springs didn't rate his beer as he expected so he threatened to move to Denver due to it. He's a world class egomaniac.

Very fun vibe in this place. Foods a little pricey for what you get, but they make up for that with the exceptional guest tap list and there own taps they have. For quality of beer its very well could be the best brewery in C.S

Walking in wasn't sure what to expect as my first indication was that this wasn't my type of vibe (seemed less casual than other taprooms). Then as I examined the tap list a server walked up and spent time with me trying to figure out what to drink first.

I had 3 different servers come up to me to make sure I was being taken care of and each of them gave advice on what beer to try next. I wish service was like this at every brewery I walk into.

Beer selection ranged from sours to ipas to stouts, my favorite was the Sour Threads.

Food was great! Beer was so so...and service was weak! Had to flag someone down after sitting down for 10 minutes and grabbing our own menus. Plus the server forgot to enter our food and had to go put it in after being there for 45minutes already.

This seems like a place that knows what it wants to be and is executing it well. We went on a beautiful Saturday in January (seriously) and it was packed at noon, always a good sign. They have a huge variety of their own brews on tap, and though I only tasted a couple, both were excellent. Though also had an incredible guest tap list (Bourbon County, FW 18th Anniversary, etc.), which is ballsy considering they are also selling their own product. Shows confidence in their beers.
Food menu was eclectic and very interesting. Among us, we had sliders, jerk chicken mac and cheese, and some other cool stuff. Would definitely go back just for the food.
Servers knew their product well and made recommendations.
The brewery component is kind of behind walls, so you can't see much of what's going on.

I've never had an enjoyable experience at Trinity. It always takes 20 minutes to get a beer after I arrive. The food is sub par. Service is slow, and nobody is really friendly there. They have a great selection if you enjoy a saison, but the rest of their selection is limited.

Also, recently, the owner went to Twitter and insulted the entire community's intelligence because they ranked 3rd in a beer poll. Totally classless. I spent my last dollar at Trinity over a year ago, and don't regret that decision.

Used to be a big supporter, but after repeated negative posts and comments about the Colorado Springs community I will be taking my business elsewhere.

After coming in 3rd place in a local beer blog's "Best of the Springs" competition (which was voted on by COS community members) Trinity has the following to say on their official Twitter account, "coming in 3rd locally while winning nationally internationally? #hmmm...it's situations like this that pretty much guarantee we will be leaving the springs... I've pretty much accepted the education level of the city."

Furthermore, Trinity blocked anyone who called them out on their a negative view. Thanks, but not thanks. I'll take my business somewhere else, and to Trinity: if you all hate COS so much I suggest you do too.
