Earlier today in what could very well be the last update of 2016, Esther Tetreault, co-founder of Trillium Brewing took to the email list to send a small update to everyone amidst what has been a very busy year for the brewery.
The letter doesn’t divulge too much but does reflect on the fact that their second location in Canton is turning a year old and that their dream of opening an estate brewery in Stonington, CT are still very much a dream at this point. More importantly, the update also divulges that they’ll be relocating their original and now very much outgrown, original location in Fort Point to another spot nearby. They haven’t said where yet but the new location is apparently under agreement and things will be moving forward next year.
Please find the update below:
I think it was just about 2 years ago that I said “So we’re building another brewery. Holy shit.”
As we celebrate the anniversary of our first year in Canton and look forward to a new year, I’m beyond thrilled to share that we have another expansion in process. We are working on plans to relocate our Boston brewery!
More details will come, but we have a new space under agreement in our Fort Point neighborhood. For now let’s just say that there will be more of everything: more beer, (way) more space, and more fun (but still no dedicated parking…sorry, just not possible in downtown Boston).
What’s that? You heard something about a farm in Connecticut? For now we’re just looking and dreaming. A project like this requires a ton of planning and due diligence and JC and I are not people who do anything on a whim (oh wait…except maybe opening that first brewery…) We need to make sure we have the right space, in a town and community that will welcome and support us, and can make it easy for all of our fans to visit. At this point we’ve made no commitments.
Some may say “Slow down, Trillium! You’re going too fast!” But remember…these things don’t happen overnight. It took us almost 2 years to open Trillium. Then we spent a year finding our Canton location and another year building the brewery. That farm? The farmhouse brewery was our original dream long before we even built our first home on Congress Street. It would be at minimum a two year project and we don’t even have a farm yet. But it sure is fun to keep planning and dreaming.
Our new Boston brewery will be a long-awaited expansion for all of us: for me and JC to take one step closer to sharing our ultimate vision of Trillium; for our resourceful production team who spent over a year brewing with a converted dairy tank; for our kickass retail team who crush service every day behind that bar in 400 square feet; and especially for you…all of our fans who have waited in the rain in lines that sometimes curled down Congress, past Lucky’s on to A Street!
Thank you for supporting us on this wild ride! #teamtrillium is super excited for what’s to come…stay tuned for more details and have a happy and healthy new year!
Stay tuned for more updates once we find out more and in the interim you can visit Trillium at the following two locations: 369 Congress St, Boston, MA 02210 and 110 Shawmut Rd, Canton, MA 02021.
