This is one of our favorite places in the community. We have introduced many friends to Triptych. Old reviews about lack of seating are outdated. Plenty of seating outside now in good weather, and a newly expanded space in the tap room now. On many nights, there is a food truck parked outside -- the pizza on Thursday nights is especially good.

There is always a wide selection of beer on tap. What we like best is the brewers are not afraid to experiment. Getting a bunch of four ounce pours to sample the latest is always a treat.

Laid back atmosphere with a place that's all about the beer. Cool, knowledgeable servers. The smell was amazing pulling in to small parking lot. Canned 4packs available for pick up. Awesome beer.

The tasting room is literally just in the brewery itself. Long bar with some seating along with a smattering of tables in the tasting room. Big shelf with games for patrons to play. Really awesome big patio area with lots of tables - would be a great spot to sit and have a beer in the evening when the weather is nice. About 10 or 15 beers on tap along with a selection of to-go cans and bottles as well as howlers/growlers. Guy working the bar was very friendly and chatted with all the customers, offered recommendations and was just generally a good ambassador for the brewery. Was not as impressed with the beers I had on tap as I have been with some of their canned offerings. Still the space is a nice place to stop and have a beer.

This place opened a few years ago to much fanfare -- CU is a big beer community and this filled a very important niche that apparently Blind Pig Brewery and Destihl just couldn't. The place is a cool hangout with a nice layout.

But, man, the beer sucks. I try most things that sound interesting and am at the point where I am excited when only moderately underwhelmed. I like going there but only with a group to play games when others like the beer. Sometimes I consider getting a couple of growlers and evaluating over a longer time scale, but their growler prices are somewhere between exorbitant and downright ridiculous.

The truth is that both BPB and Destihl offer better beer, better access to food, and better access to other things in general (Triptych is down in Savoy). I'll keep trying to find one or two that I like, but I am disappointed by the fellatious adoration by the locals that probably keeps these guys from figuring their shit out.

I always look forward to visiting triptych will visiting family in C-U. They have a very nice rotating selection available with a lot more variation than you would expect for a brewery of this size. My last visit on 4/3 they had a large selection of barrel aged projects going on, including a barrel aged sour. My favorites selections over time are the Pale ale very dank and citrus forward and the Russian imperial stout. I would love to try a BA version of this.
