The national popular lifestyle brand Thrillist has named Trim Tab Brewing in Birmingham the best craft brewery in Alabama.

The announcement this week was made on Trim Tab’s Facebook page.

Birmingham is a catalyst

The Thrillist story also recognized Birmingham’s Good People Ale and the ever expanding craft brewery industry in the Magic City.

Here is an excerpt from the  Thrillist story announcing  Trim Tab as the state’s best craft brewery.

“While Good People backs what they say with ales like the iconic El Gordo imperial milk stout we featured in our recent The 32 Must-Have Stouts Right Now list, Trim Tab wins by a glass with the killer year producing respected IPAs and European-inspired ales. From expanding across state lines to tripling their capacity, fully utilizing a new canning line, and becoming the first in Alabama to produce and can a hard sparkling water they call RECwater (Recreational Effervescent Craft water) coming in three fruit-infused flavors. And if you happen to hit up their industrial-meets-chic home base, Double T showcases a slick art gallery-tasting room hybrid, and an exclusive “Cellar Patron” program. (And a shout out to Straight To Ale in Huntsville. I see you.)”

Thillist reach across the country, as a national digital social media juggernaut cannot be understated.  According to Thrillist, the platform receives over 20 million unique visits a month, maintains 2 million email subscribers and is the number one travel publisher on social.

Honors keep coming

This is the second honor Trim Tab has received in little over a year. In October 2017, Trim Tab Brewery took home a bronze medal  at the Great American Beer Festival for its Paradise Now beer.

A force to be reckoned

The Birmingham’s and the state of Alabama’s craft breweries continue to amaze and as Thrillist put it are force to “reckoned.”
