Description: 

Pillar to Post was the first beer that was brewed at TrimTab, on New Years Day 2014. With an average brewday clocking in at around 15 hours, Pillar to Post is the most demanding beer to brew in our portfolio. It is a celebration of specialty grains. Seven different malts are employed with toasted flaked rye and rye malt standing at the forefront. Those malts provide a spicy, earthy, and decidedly biscuity flavor that is balanced against chocolate malt, midnight wheat and crisp citrus hop notes.

“Pillar to post” is an old English idiom that essentially describes an unnecessarily difficult and at-times frustrating process. On the day of the inaugural brew, the brewery opening was three months behind schedule and the project was almost three years in the making. The team thought it was appropriate to honor this journey through the name of our endearingly challenging inaugural brew. (Description provided by company)

Pillar to Post rye brown ale poured from the can a dark caramel with a beige cap of a head. It quickly receded to merely a ring that would tease at lacing, but didn't leave any.

Rye, obviously, stands out when I take a sniff. Next to that, I can smell molasses. The taste follows the smell quite closely, only adding breadiness to the mix as a binding flavor for the rye and molasses.
