One of our favorite places to hang out on the weekends is Trim Tab Brewery. Located in Lakeview, it’s one of the first breweries to open in Birmingham-and of course it’s dog friendlly! I love their craft beer, my absolute favorite is the Raspberry Berliner Weisse. While you can buy it canned in stores, it tastes better from the tap while sitting outside on a warm summer day.
Now that it’s the holiday season, Trim Tab has my favorite holiday beer-Holiday Now Cranberry Spice Berliner. They first released it last year, and it’s so delicious. I’m a sucker for anything seasonal, and this does not disappoint. It’s tart and flavorful, but not overwhelmingly so. I also love the packaging, the can looks like it’s wearing an ugly sweater!
Trim Tab decorates for the holidays with lights, a tree, and plays festive music. When it gets dark super early (at the ungodly hour of 4:30) it’s nice to go somewhere warm, festive, and inviting, and relax with a beer and pet some dogs. They also have lots of board games to play, sometimes show movies on their big screen, and they have DJs on the weekends.
Trim Tab is always releasing seasonal, small batch beer so be sure to check them on on Instagram (@trimtabbrewing) to get their latest updates. On Saturday, December 22nd, they are having a “North Pole Tap Takeover” where 8 Christmas Small Batches will be released in one night! It’s always a fun time at Trim Tab, and the holidays make this brewery even brighter. Cheers!
