This is a different experience than most beer room eateries. They bill it as slow food, and that is right on the money. If you are on a mission to shovel down some food and get on to the next thing, this is not the place for you. Now, that being said, if you have some time and want so really thoughtful beers and food, pull up a stool.
Local, organic, artful, delicious food. Portions might be a little on the small side, but each bite is full of flavor. The menu has plenty of options for the veggie, but carnivores won't be left out or disappointed. Kobe beef sliders went over big with my friends.
Brewing gear is highlighted behind the picture windows in the middle of the dining room across from the bar. There are big chairs and couches in the back area for those looking for a homelike atmosphere. The dining tables are small, so you might as well belly up to the bar or sit on the patio and enjoy the evening air.
Service here isn't top notch, but again they expect you to take your time and enjoy the food, drink, and conversation. Don't be surprised if you have to raise your hand to get your check.
The guest taps are plentiful and the house brews are great too. I had a flight of their creations and most were in the decent to good range.
I'll be back, but not until I've hit a bunch of the other Co Springs area breweries first.

This place is pretty neat. The best part of the experience was our bartender, who let us get an insane amount of tasters of some great beers. The guest taps are where it's at, some awesome selections.
The building and decor just felt like random hipster bar xxx. It didn't do it for me. Their house beers were very bland and forgettable overall. I would be back however, just for the service and guest taps.

Very lovely place. It seems to be the spot in COS to hit up if you want so real creative brews. The people are fantastic and love the vibe in this place. Some of the customers were a little bit on the rough edgy side but hey it takes all kinds. Great place to visit if you want to try something new that is sure to take your taste buds on a roller coaster ride!! I will be back again and again for sure. The staff is also fantastic. Couldn't ask for more.

Atmosphere: Great looking place. Very rustic and unique. I love the patio. Just wish they had some more tables because they are so popular now, but that isn't a bad thing for them by any means.
Quality: All of their beers and food are top notch.
Service: A little on the slow side. Friendly as all get out, but just a little slow due to the amount of people they are serving.
Selection: They always have a massive selection of beers on tap and usually have their bottles for sale. Great selection of great quality beers and they usually have Pliny on tap.
Food: Not your typical bar food, but way better. The menu is very creative and delicious.
Value: Yeah, the bottles and food are pricey. It's a tough pill to swallow spending $35 for The Flavor or $25 for OH!Face, but I do it anyway because their beers are that good. I will still buy their beers, just not as much as I would like to.
I read the reviews on some of their beers and have no idea why they are so low. Everyone I have traded their beers to have had their minds blown away and their beers keep getting better and better. I would put Trinity's saisons up against anyone.

A Grand Slam! While passing through one night on vacation I was only able to spend about 90 minutes here due to their closing at 9 PM (bummer, but it was a school night).
1) Saison central! While they offer a broad range of styles I chose to drink three of their Saisons. ALL were exceptional. Seriously, these guys know how to brew. One of these was brewed in honor of Dany Prignon and his famous Fantome brewery (they touted having a relationship with the man). While it was not a Fantome, of which I have had several, it was a fine tribute. Base hit!
2) Food. While some reviewers give a somewhat neutral to negative vibe on this joint’s menu, I thought it was fabulous. Their fare is eclectic, but all four of the small dishes I shared were really tasty and accompany their beers quite well. Let down your prejudices and try something you’ve never had. I doubt you will be disappointed. We have two men on base now.
3) Guest taps, location, service, and price. You will see a lot of regional selections represented, which I like very much. How one would ever find time to drink one I don’t know, unless you lived near there. How can you beat this?: Outside seating with a view of Pike’s Peak. OK, I didn’t get to enjoy this because the seats were all taken, but still, what a view going in and out of the place! Service was nominal; not bad, not off the charts. The gal who served me was nice, “somewhat” knowledgeable about their beers, and came around often enough to keep my water glass full. A bar seat would no doubt be the place to be. The prices? I would say average to good. Nothing on the dinner menu is going to make you wince although you will probably need to order two items instead of one to make a meal. Beer prices are unexciting---neither too high or low enough to notice. Well by George, we have bases loaded.
Me personally? I hope to go back here sometime and spend 2 – 3 hours enjoying their beers. A better scenario would be a 4-day work trip in CO Springs so I could hit it every night. Even so, I doubt I would make a large dent in their list of offerings.
This place is a Grand Slam IMHO---definitely worth consuming some space on your calendar.

This is a small but grand little brewery.
Besides brewing their own tasty brews, they have an awesome collection of guest beers on tap. As for their brews, they're pretty top-notch. They seem to really like experimenting with farmhouse ales and have come up with some real winners over the years. I'm more of a traditional beer style guy, but have really enjoyed their more adventurous offerings.
The food is okay, but don't expect your 'normal' brew pub fare. they lean more towards vegan styled offerings, but no matter, it's usually tasty.
The atmosphere is intimate. There's a relatively small seating availability, so it can get crowded. But what really says a lot about this place is that it usually has a fair number of people, even during mid-afternoon time frame.
Another plus is their 10% discount for human-powered transportation. Walk, run, bike, skateboard your way to the place, and they'll knock 10% off your entire bill. My experience has been that you may have to remind the person who's handling your tab, but that's a minor ding for an otherwise great discount incentive.

I came to Colorado Springs from South Carolina, and one of the first things I wanted to do was try some local beers. I was told that this was the place to go. At the foot of the Garden of the Gods, I am sure that they get a lot of business. I visited late afternoon (2-3pm) on a weekday, so it was slow. Perfect for someone wanting to take their time with their food and beer.
The place is modestly sized, with a nice selection of 2, 4, and 6 tops with a long stretching bar. The menu was quite nice. It is full of vegetarian options if that is your thing. The selection of beer is equally impressive; their taps feature their own brews as well as some 'guest' brews (namely: a lot of Colorado beer). Given that I visited in December, there was a lot of seasonal winter beer to choose from.
The service was good, but I think it had a lot to do with the time I arrived. As it got closer to 5pm...the population of the bar went up, service went down. However, I liked my waitress/waiter, and they offered up several selections of beers and food, as well as some on the house samples. I went with a flight, which at $9 for 6 pours was not bad at all. I did find their pint and bottle prices to be a bit pricy...but that might be because I'm from South Carolina. A pint of their in-house beer was between $5-8. A growler of their double ipa was around $38, while the bottles were between $16-28.
Despite the price, I felt that it was a good deal...especially for the flight. I will come back, maybe to stop in for a Slap Your Mammy.

this place is aweomse. phenomenal beers, unique styles, tons of variety. theyve got some on cask (including a great ipa), some seasonals (inluding am imperial pumpkin), and some for the ladies (a kiwifruit witbier). great service providing endless free samples of beers. outrageuos food menu too, i had some lamb sliders with local bluecheese and an ipa mustard. really excellent. also had a great list of guest beers from around the country. had a dogfish 120 on tap, which was a nice treat. the place was on the expensive side, but for a chilly autumn monday night, it was just fine with me. i will undoubtedly be back here. they have a ton of neat events as well which feature their beers, local music, and inspired cuisine. worth a trip from denver any day!

If you are looking for a great place to go and have a beer this is it. The brewery has at least 5 of their own amazing bees on tap and up to 25 guest beers on tap that come from all over the world.
The place is always packed after 5 so get there early if you want to find a seat. The staff is very knowledgeable about the beer and are more than happy to answer any questions that you might have.
All the food is awesome and you can get Vegan, Vegetarian and organic food.
Overall I would recommend this pub to anyone who ever gets the chance to visit Colorado Springs.

After touring the Garden of the Gods this made for a great afternoon stop to rehydrate. The pub is at the end of a strip mall that's just off the road and is easy to miss. The feel off the place is a mountain bar. There's a lot of woodwork around the windows and doors with corregated metal in various places. There's lots of brewania signage and stickers. There's planty of taps that showcase what the brewpub makes and lots of other good picks, a kinda screwball variety but it's fun even just to read. The food menu is kinda small and has some items that run from pretentious to ecentric, like the bacon/caramel cheesecake with bacon sauce and the sliders with a choice of kobe or lamb.
The staff is quick to get your order in, but I wonder about their personal hygene. This place is a blast. So long as I don't get hepatitis from the granolies congregating there it's a definite repeat stop.
