Trillium Garden To Open in Roslindale

Trillium BrewingWe all saw rumors floating around but they’re now true and it is now official: Trillium Brewing is opening up a beer garden at the Roslindale Substation. Slated to open at some point next month, the beer garden will feature a variety of taps not unlike the beer garden they operated on the Greenway all summer.

Please find Trillium’s official statement below:

November 17th, 2017- Trillium Brewing Company, in partnership with Roslindale Village Main Street, is excited to announce plans to operate an indoor winter beer garden in the iconic Roslindale Substation Building.

The Trillium Garden at the Substation is slated to open in early December 2017 and will run through the winter season. In the heart of Roslindale Village, the beer garden will be an indoor venue open five days a week, serving a variety of rotating draft options. The location accommodates open seating, community space, and a limited number of private event opportunities.

“We had a killer time with the Garden on the Greenway this summer so we jumped at the chance to bring Trillium to another Boston neighborhood,” said Trillium co-owner Esther Tetreault. “Our goal has always been to build a strong community and share what we do. The Substation is such a unique and iconic space, in a welcoming neighborhood, making Roslindale a perfect winter home for the Trillium Garden.”

“Beer aficionados will have the unique opportunity to drink Trillium’s award-winning beer in the Substation’s awe-inspiring space, with its 34 foot ceilings, 18-foot copper clad doors, 250-ton capacity gantry crane, and six two-story windows,” said Alia Hamada Forrest, RVMS’s Executive Director. “Where Trillium goes, its fans follow. I’m eager to welcome the newcomers that will discover Roslindale’s existing mix of vibrant restaurants and retail options, and hope that these types of creative partnerships continue to spark across all of Boston Main Street districts. We know when you visit — you will want to return.”

The Roslindale Substation (designed by architect Robert Peabody of Peabody and Stearns with Stone and Webster Engineering Corporation) was built in 1911 and is one of six nearly identical converter substations built in and around Boston at that time to convert alternating current (A/C) electricity from the Boston Elevated Railway’s South Boston power plant to direct current (D/C) power for use by the trolley system. Service was discontinued in 1971 and the space remained unused until 2014 when the $4.8 million Substation renovation project was conceived and undertaken by Historic Boston Inc., Roslindale Village Main Street, Peregrine Group, LLC of Rumford, RI, and architect Prellwitz Chilinski Associates of Cambridge. In January 2017, Craft Beer Cellar opened on the lower level of the substation, ending the 46 year vacancy. Trillium’s tenancy on the main floor of the building will revive a prominent corner and reactivate the historic space. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic places.

Already in the substation building is Craft Beer Cellar Roslindale who opened that location in January of this year. Also opening in the area next year is Distraction Brewing Company and more details on that coming soon. In the interim you can get updates on this new Trillium Garden via the brewery’s dedicated Twitter account.

The Roslindale substation is located at 4228 Washington Street, Roslindale, MA 02131.

Down The Road Brewing’s Grand Opening Happening Friday

Down the Road Beer Co.Everett-based Down the Road Brewing will finally be opening up their brand new taproom this upcoming Friday after months of work. This is years in the making and a lot of their beers have been available in and around Boston for a quite a while now, including their flagship pale ale known as ‘Pukwudgie‘ which has been around since March of 2015.

The 12,000 square foot place will have a sizable, 2,500 square foot taproom with an equally sizable brewhouse of 30-bbl which leaves them with additional room to expand into. And much like their neighbors from Bone Up and Night Shift, they will also have plenty of snacks available as well as a robust list of food trucks that will be coming and going.

No crowlers or growlers will be available but they will have 4-packs of cans available. Their tap list for their grand opening features the following beers:

Golden City New England IPA
Spring Heel Jack London Porter
Rasenmaher Kolsch
Reynard’s Witbier
Seventh Star IPA
Dreamtime New England IPA
Peach Feyborn Berliner Weisse
Wolfgeist Dunkel Lager
Hooligan Nut Brown Ale
Pukwudgie
Henzelmann’s Festbier

The brewery’s grand opening will be happening Friday at 5:30PM and both Penny Packers and Roadies Diner will be the food trucks for the event. You can find out more about the event on their Facebook event page by clicking here.

After the opening shenanigans are over, their regular hours will be Tuesday to Saturday, 11 am to 11 pm and Sunday 11 am to 6 pm. They will be closed on Mondays.

Down the Road Brewing is located at 199 Ashland St, Everett, MA 02149.
