The busy boys over at Trillium Brewing have made a few announcements earlier today including a few updates in regards to their brewing space and upcoming brewing schedule. They’ve been at near brewing capacity for the last ten months but have been able to recently add two new, 20bbl tanks into their space which they think will try and help them keep up with the demand for their popular Fort Point Pale Ale and Congress Street IPA.
This isn’t exactly news to many of us, the brewery has been struggling to meet an incredible amount of demand and they frequently run out of some of their beers despite their best of intentions. They have also announced that they will continue to search for a new space to expand into although they do not intend on leaving their home on Congress Street anytime soon, if ever. The search for a new space has been ongoing for nearly a year now.
Along with this news, they’ve also announced their upcoming release schedule which features a lot of very interesting beers and which is as follows:
“The bottles will be released exclusively at the brewery at Noon on Tuesday August 19th. In order to help prevent extended wait times, only be bottles (no samples, growler filling) will be available starting at noon through to 4PM on Tuesday. Growler filling of other beers will resume at 4PM and any remaining bottles of Heavy Mettle will continue to be available. There’s a limit of four bottles of Heavy Mettle per person, no holds. Oh, we’ve got some cool gifts to show our appreciation for the first 20 people in line for Heavy Mettle!”
“Same deal as Heavy Mettle: kegs set aside for those events later this month, while the rest made its way to 750ml bottles (no growler fills). The bottles will be released exclusively at the brewery at Noon on Thursday August 21st. Only bottles (no samples, growler filling) available from noon-4PM on Thursday. Growler filling of other beers will resume from 4-730PM. Limit of four bottles of Double Dry Hopped Congress Street IPA per person, no holds.”
“So, pilot batch of Double Pot & Kettle. The addition of Dark Belgian Candi Sugar was responsible for furthering the depths of charred fruit and roasted flavors. This special sugar bumped up the abv to 9% but its tremendous fermentability resulted in that same smooth drinkability you come to enjoy in Pot & Kettle. We aged a portion of this 1.5bbl pilot batch on American oak staves and Vanilla Beans further layering in complementary aromatic, flavors, mouthfeel. Outside of the single 1/6bbl keg earmarked for the dinner, we bottled the balance of the batch in 375ml bottles. Stay tuned for a release date for these toward the end of August. Given the batch size, there will only be a very small number available (a little over 300 bottles).”
“Before the book was released, we asked Michael Tonsmiere aka The Mad Fermentationist if he might be interested in doing a book signing of his incredible book American Sour Beers when he was in Boston…Mike said yes! We pulled some special beers out of our cellar in anticipation of his visit to the brewery on Thursday, September 4th. We have the return of Lineage Rye and the introduction of Lineage Wheat – wild saisons featuring locally grown & malted Rye and Wheat respectively from Valley Malt. These beers have been aged for over a year in 500L/132 gallon casks, slowly fermenting with our house wild microbe mixed culture. We’ll also have some beautiful stemmed Lineage Series glasses available, perfect for enjoying these rustic wild saisons. Details/timing of the book signing bottle limits to be determined/announced.”
Last but not least, the brewery has also announced that new, 13oz tulip glasses have arrived and are in stock at the brewery, and will also soon be added to their online store as well. The tulip can be seen below:
Stay tuned for more updates on some of those upcoming releases with finalized times and such.
