Kenny Gould, the founder of Hop Culture magazine, spent all of 2019 searching America for the best breweries. Considering he has a career committed to beer, whatever he says, goes. He’s always on the pursuit of hoppiness!

Did you know there are over 7,500 breweries in the country? That’s A LOT of hops! Gould based his top 10 breweries on what best represented this year’s brewing landscape. This includes a focus on experimental IPAs, sours, and stouts. The rankings also take into account the company’s focus on education and support for their communities.

We’re proud of TrimTab Brewing Co. They’ve been drowning in awards for the past few years. We’re talking Thrillist, Forbes, Birmingham Magazine, and now Hop Culture. Even their team was pleasantly surprised by what TrimTab had to offer.

Two years ago, if you’d told us that we’d name an Alabama brewery as one of our Top 10 of 2019, we would’ve politely challenged you to a duel

If you’ve had a TrimTab beverage, you understand exactly how they made it on the Top 10 list. They’ve been praised for the impressive stouts, innovative cocktail-inspired sours, and experimental IPAs.

Here’s a look at the team’s fave TrimTab brews

  • 205, a Southern Pale
  • Japanese Lager, a Rice Based Lager
  • Giant Steps, a DDH Hazy Double IPA

Pillar to Post Rye Brown Ale. Simply delicious. A beer you can crush after cutting grass or sitting around a fire with your pals.

My favorite is TrimTab 006. Honestly, I don’t like IPA’s but for some reason this one has the perfect balance.

  • The Original 006, a Double Dry-Hopped Hazy Double IPA
  • Imperial Euphoria, a Passion Fruit & Guava Berliner Weisse

Paradise Now because I love sours (although if I have more than two I get heartburn)
