Trinity Brewing ramps up beer after expansion

Trinity BrewingA word from the brewer, Jason Yester in a recent newsletter:

Trinity Brewing has just gone though the largest transition since opening.

It took us only 6 days to tear out all of the original brewing equipment, install a completely new set of fermenters, a new stacked brewhouse, and brew all of the tanks full!

This was quite an accomplishment :). With the new Brewery, new Serving Vessels, and the new exterior enclosure we've increase our potential beer throughput by over 350%. We will also be the first brewery in Colorado Springs, and southern Colorado, to brew beer outside!

Why are we doing all of this?!?! Because our beer has become so popular we needed to expand in order to keep it on tap. This expansion also allows us the production space to place 3 new house beers onto the permanent menu.

The first, Saison Man, will be released this Friday! This long anticipated golden Belgian Ale is a 'Post Industrial Session Saison,' brewed with weyerman pilsen, rye, flaked wheat, flaked oats, spelt, and grains of paradise. We hopped this beer with Styrian Goldings and Czech Saaz to create a bitter and dry profile, then fermented this recipe with 2 farmhouse yeast strains and Drie Bretta to create spicy and light barnyard notes.

Although this recipe will not rotate, all you Farmhouse fans need not fear! That label will continue as rotating and experimental harvest Saisons. Our goal is to keep 2-3 house brewed Saisons on tap full time.

Everyone will be pleased to know that the extremely popular Slap Yer Mammy has been slotted for the second addition to our lineup of full time house beers! This 125 palate slapping IBU Double IPA is brewed with a 125 minute boil and 9 varieties of hops. Slap Yer Mammy is scheduled to release on Friday April 13th on draught :), and soon after look for it in bottles and hand pumped cask at the pub full time.

Our third new full time house beer is Chi Belgian Pilsener. We won't be brewing it until hotter months, but this lager style beer will be a golden straw color and extremely hoppy/dry.

Another part of our expansion will include distribution to extremely select local beer pubs. Keep your eyes out for the old skool milk truck we are converting into a beer truck at the best beer bars in town, and remember when you visit the pubs to ask your bartender for a tasty Trinity beer :).
