Hell, does the Trim Tab brewery sell cans of their own stuff?




Yes they do, call them and see what they have.

The little market store in Crestwood might have some too. Vineyard.

I got 2 4-packs of theory of abundance yesterday at Piggly Wiggly. Haven’t seen Cloud Architecture around in some time.

Out 280 near Mt Laurel. They only had a few left, but several of the Dripping Gold. I didn’t care for the Dripping Gold.

Brewery released Helix Rising today, which is fantastic. Not sure how brewery sales are working though.

So I made the drive up to Hop City this morning.

Got some Dripping Gold, Rulebook Arsonist, a growler of Cloud Architecture and some Omnipollo AON.

Stopped at a Piggly Wiggly and got some Neapolitan Skyline by SPB.

BeerHog was closed.

Hop City let me go in and browse.

BeerHog had a sign on the door stating they were opening at noon and all orders were to be delivered to the door. No browsing.

Dang, had no clue. Friend had shopped there probably Wednesday or Thursday and didn't say anything about that. My bad.

At least Hop City let you in, Beer Hog rarely has something that Hop City doesn't.

It's cool. I still spent $110 on beer today.

Adn Beer Hog's retail space isn't that big to begin with, so you likely didn't miss much.

Definitely threw down close to 100 bucks yesterday between Hop City, and Trim Tab.

Got a sixer of Space Lettuce, and a big can of Dark Subject Matter bba stout(both Monday Night), and a growler of Katherine Johnson by Trim Tab(Sour with prickly pear, elderflower, peach, and lemon peel) from Hop City, and then some Helix Rising, and Dripping Gold from Trim tab.

Made the drive up to Birmingham for a beer run this morning.

Hop City is no longer allowing patrons into the store. They just put out an online ordering system though:

orderonline.hopcitybeer.com

It's not perfect and they are having issues with some of the UPCs belonging to specific brewers, but it is better than nothing.

I also went by TrimTab for the first time and it was awesome. They have all of their stuff right there in front of you so just tell them what you want and an employee will go put it together.

Let's just say I spent a lot of money today.

I got some Fudge Therapy, Helix Rising and two different Language of Thunders.

I also got some Three Claw from Westbrook Brewing. It's fantastic.

The best thing about the house we bought three years ago is that the gas station less than a mile away probably has the biggest craft beer selection in the Madison area. Stocked up on Straight to Ale Monkeynaut and Brother Joseph's yesterday.

Druid City Brewing's cans are starting to hit the market finally. Hop City has their porter and IPA as of today. The porter is one of my favorite beers brewed in Alabama, and the IPA is pretty strong as well.
