Fort Point favorite Trillium Brewing has announced the release of three beers this week, two which are returning and a new variant of one of their flagships. The releases are to take place over the next three days, building up to the American Craft Beer Festival which kicks off this very Friday evening.
Unfortunately only one of the three beers will be released via 375ml bottles which means that the line for growler fills, at the brewery, will probably be lengthy. That being said, it’s a small price to pay some fresh, tasty beers. Below are the release details:
Wednesday May 28th, 4PM: Lineage Rye
This release made it’s debut nearly a year ago at the American Craft Beer Festival and is part of their Lineage series which classifies it as a wild saison. This one is best described as a saison which was “first fermented in stainless with our farmhouse yeast blend and then inoculated with our house ‘bug blend’ microbe culture when racked to oak cooperage over a year ago. The beer continued to slowly ferment and developed beautifully wild and earthy notes and a subtle but bright and clean lactic acidity.“
There will be a 6 bottle/person limit for this release.
Thursday May 29th, 4PM: Double Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale
Trillium took one of their most popular beer and decided to double dry-hop it resulting in what is described as a more aromatic and flavorful beer thanks to a hefty amount of both Citra and Columbus hops. Except some citrus and tropical fruit character in this beer. This one will be released via 32oz and 64oz growler fills with a one gallon per customer limit.
Friday May 30th, noon: Mettle
Originally released in mid-March, Mettle, which was brewed for Trillium’s one year anniversary was a huge success and was gone in the blink of an eye. But the brewers were able to make some calls, secure more of those hops and get a second batch going. This double IPA which rings in at 8.4% A.B.V. is best described as having “deep hop character with sturdy, balancing grain bill, featuring Valley Malt Triticale, Danko Rye and Wheat”. And just like their DDHFPPA, this one will be available via growler fills, both 32oz and 64oz, with a one gallon per customer limit until it sells out, which will most likely be very quickly.
Can’t make it to the brewery? Sold out before you secured any of these beers? Worry not, they’ll be pouring all three of those beers at the American Craft Beer Festival and a limited amount is also slated to hit a few bars including Row 34 in the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled.
