Transcribed from notes dated F, 25 Sept 2009.
What was I doing here and how did I get here?, those who know me might ask. It was an hour south of Denver and I was on a bus trip with Ale Street News as part of their annual GABF foray. It was our first stop of the day and a picture was taken here with the mountains in the background that was later published.
Disembarking, I saw that it was on the corner of a small strip mall with an outdoor patio area to the right of the entryway. Entering, the short "J"-shaped bar was mere steps inside of the door. A rack of distressed wood (driftwood?) to the left of the bar displayed growlers. Similar distressed-wood constructions framed the chalkboards, which used colored chalk to detail available beers, specials, and other miscellany. The bar top was a colorful stained glass-like amalgam composite with corrugated aluminum as the front. Aft of the bar was the cooler followed by the modest kitchen. To the right of the bar were a series of high stainless steel tables bolted into the wall overlooking the brewery. A plaque noted that the windows came from a real estate salvage yard. Frankly, the whole place had a very industrial/recycled feel, including exposed ducting, ceiling fans and the bare concrete floor. Further aft, on the left side were the lavs and on the right side was a garage door opening for more open-air seating past a lounge area filled with sofas and comfy chairs. Against the back wall were several racks for storage and aging of their barrel-aged beers. Overall, it was a pleasant experience, but nothing, including food or beer, was so mind blowing that I would have felt as though I had missed out by not having visited.
Beer: Six (6) including Sunna Wit, Chi Golden Speciale, FLOIPA (also on N2), Farmhouse Saison, Soul Horkey Ale, and Awaken Stout (also on N2).

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.

Following a 6am departure from Albuquerque on a long day of driving to Wyoming, we stopped here for lunch. Trinity sits at the corner of a small shopping center on a fairly busy road, with a good sized outdoor seating area. Inside, the brewhouse is on the left with a J-shaped bar straight ahead and bunch of tables (with a few booths) on the right. Spacious, airy and fairly bright.
Tap list was pretty solid with about 6 taps of house beer and an extensive list of guest taps. We stuck with a selection of house beers, all of which were solid, none of which were terribly memorable. I had the Flo IPA, which was fine.
The food on the other hand was really good. Fresh ingredients, tasty and well prepared. Service was rather flighty and inattentive, but pleasant at least.
Not an outstanding stop but a nice place I'd visit again.
