I went to Trinity Alehouse on Saturday afternoon and had a mediocre experience there. There are big windows on the front entrance with plenty of seating to the right or left. You’ll notice a bunch of tables and chairs as well as booths. The brewery tanks are located behind the bar, which I always think is a nice touch.

We sat at the bar and I noticed about 7 draft options including Octoberfest, Kolsch, Cascadian Dark Ale, Larkin’s Irish Stout, Rhode Island IPA and Belgian Saison. I ordered a Bobby Pilz Pilsner that was pretty average. I didn’t try any of their food as I had brunch just a couple of hours before.

Service was responsive, but there also were only a handful of customers. The bartender was eating food behind the bar, which was kind of nasty and I always feel like I’m interrupting or bothering them in those situations. On a positive note, I thought the beers were priced very reasonable at $4.25.

Trinity Alehouse didn’t leave a lasting impression with me and I wasn’t motivated to try any of their other beer offerings after finishing my first. I would be open to trying this place out again, maybe I just went on an “off” day. (1,171 characters)

Providence is like if Boston survived a suicide attempt. And not one of those sissyboy attempts, like sleeping pills. More like one of those guys who somehow manages to fuck up a shotgun in the mouth. It's still New England--got the awful traffic and hideous accent and even the meathead jocks are genuinely tolerant--but there's no natural or architectural background to bring this New Englandness into sensible relief. It's just... this place. With things in it.

Trinity is a chill, super old school brewpub just around the block from the place where Hasbro makes all sorts of cool toys. I *think* this was downtown Providence--I drove by what passes for their skyline to get here--but I can't say for sure.

Anyhow, this was 5:30 on a Friday and the crowd was sparse but happy. The building is ancient and woody and the acoustics are pleasantly weird. Regulars joked loudly at the bar and the waitstaff were very friendly. There's TVs above the bar and downstairs has a second bar and a pool table. Lots of old banners and RI-centric beer schwag.

There were 8 or so house offerings on tap along with a couple of local ciders and some hard liquor.

The beers were very old school and very brewpubby. Even the Citra IPA had a English-tasting backbone. This probably won't be up to your tastes if you just got into craft beer in the past few years, but if you adjust your expectations you should walk away satisfied. Not *super pleased* , but satisfied. The beer is okay. (1,489 characters)

One of the first places I fell in love with when I moved to Prov 10 years ago. Growlers of their Belgian Strawberry are like gold. And when they changed their menu and the Jerk Chicken Sandwich was taken off, the awesome chef was nice enough to always make it for me. (267 characters)

I always love Wing Night downstairs at Trinity. There's always some interesting people to watch too. I await their Strawberry Belgian each summer...and there's never ever enough :) (180 characters)
