3.5/5  rDev -6.4%

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.

This brewery is in downtown Providence has the "normal" bar feel. Nothing too out of the ordinary. The brewing area is behind the bar and easy to see. The brews are very good and unfiltered.

When I visited, there were 4 or so people at the bar and one table other than mine and it still took quite a while to get service. Once my order was placed it took a bit of time to get my brew.

On the food side of things, the fries were disgusting, oily/greasy, limp, and pretty much room temperature. The corned beef ruben on the other hand was probably the best I've ever had. So when it comes to food it would seem a hit or miss sort of thing, but be very wary of the fries.

All in all if you visit I would stick to the beer and probably sit at the bar where service is probably a bit quicker.

Hands down, the best beer in downtown Providence! Yes, the food and atmosphere is better at Union Station, but you can't beat Sean Larkin's creations at Trinity. His stouts and belgian varietals are top notch and the Redrum is one that even Danny Torrance and "Tony" would appreciate. All the beer is brewed right in front of your eyes behind the bar and the pizzas, burgers, and fries are a strong compliment. Crowded when there's a game or an event at the Dunk, but on a sunny afternoon, there's no better place for a beer in the city.

Cheap beers (less than $5 a pint). Cheap food as well. My wife and I got entrees, an appetizer and three or four beers between us for around $40. I need to try and come here more often.

I also had a coffee stout on cask that was outstanding. There is something on tap here that can satisfy any palate.
