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.

1/28/15. On tap at Cooter Brown’s, Jacksonville, AL. Brown pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Okay aroma, mostly malty, caramel, bread, Cheerios, maybe a hint of spice if you search. The flavor was okay at first... malty, caramel, bread, Cheerios, a small touch of dark fruits, but as I went through the glass and it began to warm a bit, more astringency and something off started coming through. I didn’t really want my last few swallows and I definitely didn’t order another.
