Holy Trinity Brewing Company opening downtown

Written by on December 21, 2021 in Beer, Beer from Here - No comments

I think it is fair to say that undertaking the building of a new craft brewery is a labor of love. For Tim and JoAnn McFeely, their baby has been in labor for way too long. When they took over a former dance studio on North 5th Street on January 1, 2020, they envisioned their brewery opening long before the end of 2021. But with the pandemic, labor shortages, supply chain issues, permits, and inspections, 2020 came and went, and 2021 has nearly as well. But finally the husband-and-wife team is on the verge of delivering their baby. Pending a final inspection, Holy Trinity Brewing Company could/should open this week.

The 5000 square foot taproom is finished, the brewing system has been fired up, tables and chairs and bar seats are ready for customers. When you pull up a seat at the bar or find yourself a table, you will be setting your beer down on the repurposed dance floor. In the back of the taproom is the 3.5 bbl. brewing system which head brewer Tim McFeely, hopes will turn out 500 bbls each year. Their 18 taps will all feature house beers. Expect to find a wide variety of styles on tap. McFeely has been fine tuning his recipes for months and has most of his lineup kegged and ready. Their flagship beers will include Irish Red, Porter, Stout, NEIPA, Hazy IPA, Belgian Dubbel, Belgian Trippel, Blonde Ale, Witbier, and British Brown Ale. Tap #1 will be Coco-Berry Jesus on Nitro, his award-winning Coconut-Raspberry Imperial Stout. Check out the number and variety of flights that are available. If you and your friends are feeling adventurous, order the ‘Holy Mutha’ flight which includes a 5 oz pour of all 18 beers! An extensive number of hard seltzers are also available. Food trucks are being lined up and will be parked immediately in front of the taproom.

As for the name, Holy Trinity, it refers to religion, sports, and beer. Hours are Tuesday- Thursday 4-11, Friday and Saturday 11-12, and Sunday 11-10. Holy Trinity Brewing is located at 155 N. 5th Street between Long and Spring, less than 200 yards from Wolf’s Ridge and Jackie O’s.
