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.

SpringsLicker (3685) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Can. Deep cola brown with a tall, off-white head. Sweet nutty aroma, light pepper, caramel, fresh hay. The flavor is lightly sweet,a touch of hop bitterness from who knows where, a touch of what rye does to beer all smooth and drinkable.

Cybercat (6331) - Georgia, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Can. Pours translucent cinnamon with a substantial and fairly persistent light tan head. Aroma offers toasted malt, toffee and subtle hoppy notes. Flavor ramps up the woody hops, tossing in some bitterness and a little rye character. Mouthfeel features firm body and OK fizz. Don’t go pillar to post, go pillar to tap.

Aggiebob (1384) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Can. Dark brown nearly black poured with a tan head and nice lacing. The aroma is caramel, roasted nuts and malts.

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours a nice light orangish brown color. Aromas of toasty malts, brown sugar, and nuts. Flavor is lightly sweet malts and a nice touch of hops, and a nutty finish.

Vestlake (279) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Can pour. Half a finger tan head. Beer is extremely dark and the body is very thick. This beer looks and smells more like a porter than a brown ale. Taste has a lot of malt and the rye is there too. Very smooth, but relatively thick mouthfeel. Pretty good, but it feels more like a porter than a brown.

DocJitsu (2059) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2016
Pours a dark reddish brown with a light khaki head. Roasted malt and flour on the nose. Slick and wet. Becomes a little astringent at the finish. Nothing surprising in the flavor given the nose.

drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2015
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.

sonnycheeba (6539) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Tap. Pours cola brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is toasted and cereal malts, light caramel, faint earthiness, and some faint fig. Flavor is good dry malt profile with some subtle rye spice, light chocolate, and some earthy bitterness. Medium body and carbonation.

Rasmus40 (22128) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2014
Hazy brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and nutty. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitter. Sweet and light bitter finish. 271214
