The premier brewpub of Providence in my opinion. They usually have 5 or so beers on tap at Trinity and sometimes they also have a cask beer. The selection is mostly standard beers but occasionally they throw out some beers from off the beaten path. Their IPA is a decent version of this classic beer(I personally prefer a more west coast hopped version). The food selection is what you would expect to find at most brew pubs . I have had the mussels, nachos, and a pulled pork sandwich and all of which I enjoyed. My favorite beers at trinity are the Russian Imperial Stout, the White Electric Coffee Stout, and the Ripta. Great place to check out before and or after events at the Dunkin Donut center since they are so close.

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.

I went to the Trinity Brewhouse while on business nearby. Parking is a bit of an issue, but during the week, you should be able to find somewhere to park.
The bar inside is pretty dark, but it does have nice big windows, which I understand they can open in the summer. There is also an outdoor porch where you can sit near the sidewalk and enjoy the atmosphere of downtown Providence. The service is solid. Nothing outstanding, but nothing that would make you wonder where your server was. In terms of helpfulness, though, the staff does go above and beyond with recommendations and suggestions.
I think there were about 8 beers on tap when I was there, but one of them was kicked. Traditional and newer American styles are all available, many of them in sessionable gravity ranges. The beer is pretty good, overall.
Apart from the beer, the food is phenomenal. The Hoisin wings are a personal favorite, though the Buffalo wings also stand out. I enjoyed the Bratwurst platter with my Kolsch. For a casual drink, the prices are solid, with the price of a pint under $5 and the price of the 22 oz glass only quarters more, you can definitely justify the price of the beer. The food prices are reasonable for downtown Providence, but they are still definitely city-like prices.

I came to the Trinity Brewhouse after several recommendations from BA members and my boss (non beer guy).
A: The atmosphere of the place is great. It has a weird, hippy like character on the exterior but the interior features many old beer memorbilia on the walls. The bar has an old feel to it too.
Q: I had three beers while I was there and they were all decent (or better) and very drinkable, not a bad beer in thr bunch that I drank or sampled.
S: The bartender was very friendly and attentive during my entire stay there, even talked some beer talk when he was slow.
S: A decent selection on tap, had 9 in house beers, 1 guest beer, and 1 guest cider tap. a nice array of styles between their IPA, Imperial Red, Belgian Saison, RIS, Koelsch, Pale, Irish Red, Stout, and Pilsner.
F: The food was decent, nothing that blew me away but served well. Had the brewmasters 6oz burger and it was adequate.
V: For dinner and three beers, the total came to 27 bucks, which is very reasonable to me.
Overall, a great place to visit when in downtown Providence. The only negative was the parking situation, which I am sure is fine, when there is not an event at the Dunkin Donuts Center (one block away)

Finally made it to Trinity Brewhouse. After one stop, I definitely want to come back again. The building itself looks like an old wooden bar. It is a relatively big space. There are high tables on one end of the bar, and more of a sit down dining experience on the other. It has the feel of an older building and there is plenty of light as there are windows on three sides of the building since it is on a corner. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We were the first people in on a Sunday afternoon, so perhaps we got more attention than usual. I really love the tap list: a saison, barleywine, and scotch ale on top of the usual suspects. The saison was really tasty. I love microbreweries who try and push boundaries with styles and I find that true with Trinity. The food was above average to good. We split a hearty plate of nachos. My wife had a turkey sandwich and I a chili burger. The burger was ok, but every thing else was good. The fries were exceptionally tasty. Overall I would certainly stop here again if not just for the variety of what is on tap. If you want a gourmet meal with lots of taps in Providence--go to Julians. If you want a very good homey meal with excellent homemade beers, stop here.

We brought our beer club down here at the beginning of December. We each did a sampler of all but their lightest beer of the day. They had a nice selection of beers. Our group has some pretty diverse preferences, and they had good selections for each of us.
The beers themselves were very well done. Each beer was well balanced (including one that had 120 ibus and was very drinkable). They were also a nice compliment to each other.
The decor is about what you would expect. The only thing of particular interest was the very large collection of old beer cans.
The food was typical bar food. Good, but not particularly memorable a month later.
If you want a good local microbrewery and you are in Providence, this is a great option. It was worth our drive down from Boston.

Checked out the Trinity Brewhouse when I was down in Providence recently for a birthday party. We had a few hours to kill before the party started and I wanted to try a brewpub that I hadn't visited before as I had tried the Union Station one years ago.
Trinity is right in the middle of downtown and the downntown neighborhood is a lot nicer than it was when I grew up down here. Located on the opposite side of the building from the Trinity theater, I assume this is where the name for the brewpub comes from.
Very standard wooden brewpub decor. We checked out the downstairs too which has a pool table and is a little cozier but the upstairs was a little brighter and seemed to suit our purposes better for a few beers and a bite on a Saturday afternoon.
We sat right at the bar and I tried 2 of their beers- the Kolsch and the RI IPA--neither was especially great but both were better than average and as far as I can remember slightly better than the Union station brewpubs offerings. They were both clean and true to the style although the IPA could have stood a little more hoppiness and the Kolsch could've been a little more bready/biscuity.
Service was good and friendly although the guy never did bring the water I had asked for, he was definitely quick to offer you another beer if your glass was empty. Food was a little better than your average pub food and reasonably priced. The building where Trinity is located used to be a Burger King so its a huge improvement to have a decent brewpub here instead of some fast food chain restaurant. I'd definitelty give it another visit if I am in the neighborhood.

I have been here alot and have never been disappointed. The location is a little tough to find asapce to park, but it is the city. Once inside I loved the atmosphere around the bar. A glass window with huge brewing supplies gazing at you. Also vintage beer bottles/cans and signs stare at you with every look around this joint. The brews are awesome!! They usually have about 6 on tap. The food is pretty good for the price. I had their burger. Really good. Just recently had their take on an Imperial Oktoberfest. Great flavor with a smooth feel. Very potent though so it can sneek up on ya

The atmosphere was funky and fun. We had great friendly service like visiting a good friend. The food was spot on and worth the stop in and of itself and the prices were not bad on top of that. The beer well about half were good the others not so good. The strawberry Belgian cask aged beer was amazing though sadly not available in growlers and also a beer that they only brew occasionally so they won't have it long (dam) so get it if you can. Trinity is a real gem and a place i will visit again.

Stopped in on a sunday, which much to our surprise was right before a p bruins game. So there were lots of familys and people carrying hockey bags.
We were seated immeditly and the waitress was friendly. Ordered nachos which were a little small compared to coddingtons. The gf ordered a shrimp salad and got grilled chicken instead. I was only able to order two beers, because after getting our food from someone other than the waitress, she never came back to check on us even though the place had mostly cleared out. I would recommend the beer, but skip the food. The also didn;t have anything on cask which i was disapointed about.
