Trimtab IPA

Our namesake beer, TrimTab IPA is a balanced, sessionable IPA that explores intense hop aroma and flavor without excessive bitterness. A huge amount of Pacifica hops are added in dry hop, which adds to this beer’s distinctive orange marmalade, rose petal and peppercorn character. Ripe citrus fruit aromas and flavors dominate, creating a beer that is an iconic example of TrimTab’s commitment to making expressive and complex, yet balanced craft beer. It’s an effort to answer the question, “what does it mean to be a Southern IPA?”

Pillar to Post Rye Brown

Pillar to Post was the first beer that was brewed at TrimTab, on New Years Day 2014. With an average brewday clocking in at around 15 hours, Pillar to Post is the most demanding beer to brew in our portfolio. It is a celebration of specialty grains. Seven different malts are employed with toasted flaked rye and rye malt standing at the forefront. Those malts provide a spicy, earthy, and decidedly biscuity flavor that is balanced against chocolate malt, midnight wheat and crisp citrus hop notes.

“Pillar to post” is an old English idiom that essentially describes an unnecessarily difficult and at-times frustrating process. On the day of the inaugural brew, the brewery opening was three months behind schedule and the project was almost three years in the making. The team thought it was appropriate to honor this journey through the name of our endearingly challenging inaugural brew.

Paradise Now Raspberry Berliner Weisse

A 2017 GABF bronze medal winner for the fruited wheat category, TrimTab Berliner Weisse is a tart, refreshing wheat ale that is brewed with raspberry and tart cherry puree. Bread-y wheat notes provide a soft background and delicate mouthfeel, while the fruit and acidic flavors contrast to create a very refreshing, but undeniably unique summer style.

Once deemed the “Champagne of the North” by Napoleon’s troops and having over 700 breweries that solely specialized in the style in Germany, the Berliner Weisse style stood on the brink of extinction mid-way through the 20-th century.  Legend has it that Napoleon demanded to have a Berliner Weisse after every victory.

Rescue Ship Pale Ale

Rescue Ship is a light, citrusy dry-hopped Pale Ale that was made with the southern Fall in mind. Fall in the south is often more like an extension of summer, just with a different change of perspective. Rescue Ship provides enough complexity and bitterness to welcome the coming colder months, while not losing the balanced, highly drinkable nature that defines TrimTab.
 
Aromatic and flavor profiles are largely contributed from a dry hop of Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy, which provides layers of passion fruit, peach, and other tropical fruits, while herbal and grassy notes provide a crisp backbone. Nelson Sauvin, a New Zealand hop is renowned for contributing distinctive white wine flavors 
 
Rescue Ship is branded to honor the original super hero Willie Perry. In the late 70’s Perry declared himself a real-life super hero that would “help anyone in distress”. Donning a full-body outfit, he broke up robberies, helped old ladies across the street, and generally assisted all in need. His car, the Rescue Ship, was a symbol of hope and humanity to a city that was greatly in need. So raise a glass, help someone in need, and make today a Willie Perry kind of day!

Imperial City Olde Ale

TrimTab’s Imperial City Olde Ale is in the English style. Also referred to as a winter warmer, this beer balances dark fruit flavors against a background chocolate malt and a slightly sweet finish. It is meant to provide depth of flavor while having a surprisingly clean finish. The effect should be warming, due to the high alcohol, though never losing its balanced drinkability. A great pairing with a variety of foods ranging from roasted meats to caramel desert dishes.

Imperial City Olde Ale takes its name from a piece of Birmingham Alabama’s brewing past. Imperial City Brewing Co. was started in 1911 and was in a race to be the largest brewery in the county. Unfortunately the state of Alabama prohibited alcohol in 1915 and the brewery ended before it even began. Imperial City Olde Ale celebrates the rich brewing history of Birmingham, AL – both past, present, and future. Remembering Imperial City Brewing Co. reminds us of the trimtab potential legislation has on an industry that brings happiness and culture to millions of people. So, on the 100th anniversary of the prohibition of beer in Alabama, raise a glass and celebrate our brewing brothers and sisters that came before us, and celebrate the bright future that lies ahead!
