TrimTab Brewing to Hold Limited Canned Release of Fox&Furnace and Tesserae DIPA

emblem-bwOn Friday, October 13 at 5 p.m., TrimTab Brewing (Birmingham, Alabama) will begin the limited release of Fox&Furnace English IPA and Tesserae Double IPA in 12 oz. cans.

The folks at TrimTab Brewing recently initiated a new expansion of their operation, and that will now make it possible for Birmingham’s beer-loving masses to get their hands on a few new packaged offerings from the brewery.  One of the first waves of these new canned releases will include the following two TrimTab favorites:

  • Fox&Furnace English IPA“The Red Fox is an official animal of Birmingham, England. It’s cunning, complex, and smooth.  Furnaces have long been representative of Birmingham, Alabama – The center of Southern Steel. The name Fox&Furnace connects the two Birminghams and appropriately describes this English style beer brewed in our Steel City.
    This English IPA is light in color, has a complex, almost toffee-like aroma with hints of toasted caramel. It has light citrus notes balanced with a variety of earthy and herbal characteristics. It is both rich and light.”  ABV – 5.6%  IBUs – 61
  • Tesserae Double IPA – “The name refers to the Mosaic Hops used in the beer. A “tesserae” is a small block of stone, tile, glass, or other material used in the construction of a mosaic. This beer’s name is another way that we celebrate the beauty of small unassuming sources of large scale impact (our definition of a trimtab).
    Mosaic hops unfold layers of tropical and herbaceous flavors and aromas that make Tesserae one of our most popular beers.”  ABV – 9%  IBUs – 80

Fox&Furnace English IPA and Tesserae Double IPA will officially begin their limited release in 12 oz. cans on Friday, October 13 at 5 p.m. in TrimTab Brewing’s Tasting Gallery.  These Limited Releases will have a limit of one (1) case per person.  If any cans of Fox&Furnace English IPA and Tesserae Double IPA survive the initial release, they will be sent out the following week for limited distribution to select craft beer establishments located within TrimTab Brewing’s distribution footprint.  Prost!


TrimTab Brewing Releases Bankston 88 Belgian Blonde in Cans



TrimTab Brewing (Birmingham, Alabama) has announced that 12 oz. cans of their seasonally released Bankston 88 Belgian Blonde Ale are now available for the first time in the beer’s history.

Developed to be a “crisp, crucial, crushable liquid treat”, Bankston 88 is a wheat-based Belgian-style Blonde Ale that highlights the combination of a Belgian yeast strain with Centennial and Sorachi Ace hops.  The chosen hops lend the beer a dynamic aroma “dominated by lemon verbena, grapefruit, cedar, and gardenia flowers.”  These notes are then further supported by flavors of “fresh bread, lemongrass, [and] a variety of acidic fruits such as meyer lemon and grapefruit.”  At just 4.5% ABV, Bankston 88 comes together as liquid proof “that a session beer can have incredible depth of flavor all while remaining light and undeniably drinkable.”

12 oz. cans of Bankston 88 Belgian Blonde Ale officially rolled out over the weekend with availability in TrimTab’s Tasting Gallery, and distribution will begin later this week when the brewery hosts a Launch Party at The Louis – located in the Pizitz Food Hall (120 19th Street North, Birmingham) – on Thursday, May 25 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.  After the Launch Party, you can expect to find Bankston 88 available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer establishments located within the Alabama distribution area of TrimTab Brewing.  Prost!
