The Three Faces of Tria Cafe
Wine and Beer
Tria Cafe's ever-changing roster of beers and wines swells with passion, not pretension. It features local and global selections, and each one has been crafted by someone who is truly enthusiastic about their work. For its own wine- and beer-fueled fervor, Tria has been selected as one of the nation’s best places to enjoy a beer by Imbibe magazine, and it even earned three nominations for Best Wine Service from the James Beard Foundation.
Most people recognize that cheese and wine go together. But Tria has exposed an equally steamy relationship between cheese and beer. The cheese selection here changes daily. It’s also organized into playful categories, such as "luscious," "approachable," and "stinky," which comprises washed-rind varieties with a “pronounced” aroma. You can also chomp on Tria’s cheese-infused snacks, such as truffled-egg toast with fontina fontal.
Back to School
Going back to school might be a terrifying concept, but hey, at least during these classes, you get to drink. Every week, Tria’s Sunday School series teaches students about uncommon wines, beers, and cheeses. The subject changes weekly, and hefty discounts on the featured items keep tuition costs low. Tria also offers a Fermentation Education series, which includes 15-minute lunchtime-learning sessions and more in-depth Master classes.
