Nice big space, very clean, and friendly staff. They had a food vendor outside when we showed up around 5:30 PM. The taproom has is spacious and ample seating all around with all kind of couches, high tops, and bar seats. the beers didn't blow me away, but none were bad. They seemed to can a lot of what they offered and sell those. Quite a few patrons came in to just buy a 4 or 6 pack and leave. It was once again another big industrial building that had been refurbished.

The vibe of trim tab is interesting.....they have done a nice job setting up a tap room in a warehouse type place with plenty of patio seating to make this a cool stop for after work socials. The quality of the beer is above average. The service is fine....but more in process mode than friendly/helpful mode. The selection, imo, has always been limited here. 4-5 beers on tap in which two are fruity/sour and two are brown......just saying. In all it's a solid place and worth at least a stop and pint.

When I visited in May 2018, Trimtab was the highest ranked brewery in Bham according to BA. I think this is based on the popularity of their up and coming gose and Berliner wiesse styles. Huge pallets along the wall as I came in held fresh cans available for sale. I grabbed one of the last of the Margarita Gose which had just dropped that day (which turned out to be quite good.) The tap list was fairly limited, focused on flavored wiesses and just one IPA. They had a can service which gave a lot more options, but I stuck with the draft. If I had it to do over again I'd get the can service.

The vibe definitely trends toward hipster, and Trimtab is clearly chasing the current trends (NE IPAs and smoothie sours.) Overall, worth a stop in you're traveling through Bham.

Extremely relaxed brewery. Great service with very good beer. The selection was very good. The brewery itself is an oasis of relaxation. I always enjoy my time there.

Trimtab is by far my favorite brewery in town. They have a lot more variety than any other place in town and some of my all time favorite beers are Trimtab beers.

Stopped here late one night before closing, the last brewery for the day. Taproom is located in the back side of the brewery, seating in the brewery, taproom or patio. Solid beer, great Raspberry BW. Hard to get a feel on the vibe because the place was clearing out when I got there. If I ever make it back will have to give them another try

This is a really cool place with a great vibe, close to great food and really nice for pre-dinner drinks and meet/ups. Doubles as a local art gallery, staff are knowledgeable and helpful and the beers are tasty. One of my fav spots in bham.

Stopped on a Monday night to check out this relatively new brewery in Bham. This cool open industrial space is tucked down an alley east of downtown and just a few blocks from standout Bottleshop Hop City. Crowd trends young and hip but is welcoming to this decidedly middle aged BA. 7 beers on tab including one each on nitro and cask. Styles trend towards modern takes on classic British styles. Stand outs for me were the Cask Xmas Ale and the Pillar to Post Brown. Definitely a solid addition to the emerging Bhan beer scene and worth a stop.
