Even though I’ve been living in Colorado Springs for a few months, I really haven’t had a chance to do some brewery hopping. However, my mom was in town to visit and she agreed to watch my son one afternoon, so my husband and I spent the day checking out new places and drinking good beer. I also was given a Hop Passport several months back and haven’t really used it. We decided to go to breweries that participated in the passport so I could collect a few stamps (and a few free beers).
Our first stop was at Trinity Brewing. We have both been here before and had a less than great experience on our previous visit. We were a bit hesitant to visit them again but heard service has improved, so we gave them another shot. This time service was MUCH better and we were both glad we gave them another chance.
Since this was our first stop we figured we better order some food with our beer. I ordered Wrath of God which is an IPA brewed with several different types of hops and their fried Brussel Sprouts.
Both were very tasty and actually paired really well together. My husband ordered their Citra on Oats on Nitro and their pretzel with beer cheese. We both agreed the beer wasn’t our favorite but enjoyed the pretzel very much.
Trinity is a large brewery with plenty of outdoor and indoor seating options. Since they have a large beer menu and they serve food, this is a great place to bring people who are new to craft beer.
