Trinity Brewing, Colorado Springs

Mike’s mom wanted to take us out for his birthday at the beginning of the month and I had recently read about Trinity Brewing in Sunset Magazine so I checked out their menu online. They use a lot of local ingredients and lots of their items are vegetarian which is good because his mom is a vegetarian. They brew a lot of their own beers but also carry other local beers on tap, too.

 They mostly have beer- Mike had one of their pilsners. I had a pear cider- my fave! And Linda had some kind of fruity mixed drink.

Overall it was a fun night. The staff are really nice and helpful if you aren’t sure what you want to get. They’ll give you little tasters of any of the stuff they have on tap. The food was good, not amazing (except the cheese dip which was!) but I gotta give them credit because it’s really hard to cook with local ingredients in Colorado, let alone feed an entire restaurant night after night.  I had wondered why I had never been here before but then I found out it’s only been open about a year. It’s the kind of place that seems like it’s been around forever. In a good way!
