Trillium Brewing Announces Expansion, New Brewery Plans
Boston’s brewing power couple Esther and JC Tetreault have just announced that their very own Trillium Brewing will be expanding past the Fort Point area of Boston and into a space out in the city of Canton, MA.
The new space, which is going to be located at 110 Shawmut Road, Canton, MA 02021, right off of 95 is close to both the Norwood Memorial Airport as well as the Blue Hill Country Club. It will feature a retail shop, a production facility and a taproom where bottles and growlers will be available to the public.
This announcement comes after months of speculation and the fact that they’ve been brewing at capacity for about a year now, even using the facilities over at Ipswich Brewing to release their FB-90 IPA. And while they will continue to operate out of Fort Point, the new expansion will give them more production space. They released the following statement regarding this:
We plan to keep our tiny little store and production facility in Boston. We’ll just finally be able to loosen the reins on production volume and operate more like a pilot brewery, continuing to offer new styles that are available until they run out. We love seeing regulars come in week after week, arms full of growlers, looking up at the board to see what’s new. The relationships we’ve built and feedback we receive is so meaningful to us. We’ll be able to keep the Boston shop supplied with bottles and kegs from Canton, so you’ll still be able to get special releases as well as year-round beers like Fort Point Pale Ale and Congress Street IPA. We’ll bring some fun stuff down to Canton from Boston, too!
The space will feature a 3-vessel DME MasterBrew 30BBL High Output Brewing System as well as six 90-barrel fermenters. This will enable both locations to produce approximately 10,000 barrels of beer annually.
As of now no timetable or specific date has been released but don’t expect anything to happen until the end of 2015 at the earliest and as always, stay tuned for more updates.
