Hello Beer Friends Nation!
Growing up in Colorado Springs I was exposed to a lot of good beer. New Belgium, Left Hand, Odells were all staples in my fridge and I thought that was pretty impressive. Today the scene has changed quite a bit. Great Divide and Breckenridge are found in every bar, and Upslope and Bristol Brewing Co are on the rise. On the Beer Friends Colorado Brewery Tour we came upon a up and coming microbrewery called Equinox and really enjoyed their stuff. Recently Equinox has been playing nice with the big boy neighbors New Belgium and Odell and found their place among the Fort Collins brew scene. Enter Colorado Springs beer scene and Trinity Brewing Company. Trinity, like Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, is somewhat hidden in a industrial park but a gem when you find it. I was able to find a spot at the bar and ordered the sampler of 6 of their brews including the first day release GOPrisais. 9 dollars for 6 beers and a few chunks of cheese was well worth it. Being the beer journalist that I am, I struck up a conversation with Kirk behind the bar and found out the skinny on Trinity Brewing Company. (more…)
