Backlash Opens Up Retail Space, Brewery Buildout To Follow

Backlash Beer CoBacklash Beer Co., which has been around since 2013 and more recently has been contract-brewing out of Dorchester Brewing Company has now opened up a retail space where their beers will be going on sale. This comes nearly a year after their GoFundMe campaign got crowdfunded online and appears to be the beginning of what will eventually become a fully built out brewery with a taproom.

The brewery had not always been in the Boston area and had previously been brewing out in Holyoke but they’re now here to stay at their location over at 152 Hampden Street in Boston. And while the retail space is relatively limited right now they will be open today from 12 to 6PM selling cans of Hostile Takeover and Central Square, the third IPA in their Stomping Ground series.

No word yet on if these retail hours will happen past this weekend as they’re presently building out the brewery. Tanks are scheduled to arrive shortly before Thanksgiving and but we’ll keep you posted should they happen. Either way, these guys should be up and running in early 2018 in their new Roxbury home.

Backlash Beer Company’s retail space is located at 152 Hampden St, Roxbury, MA 02119.

 

Percival Brewing Company Opens Taproom in Norwood

Percival Brewing CompanyThe town of Norwood, home to Castle Island Brewing, now welcomes a new brewery as Percival Brewing Company opens up to the public, for the very first time, later today at 4PM.

The brewery which was founded in Dorchester in 2011, had previously contract brewed locally before finding a home on Morse Street in Norwood. Their flagship amber ale known as ‘Dot Ale 1630’ has previously been floating around in the Boston area for a few years and they will be now working on introducing a variety of different beers to the public.

And while this is very much a soft launch, with limited hours this week, many more good things are to be expected in the next few weeks and months from these guys. When they open later their taproom later today, they’ll have four different beers available to the public:

Dot Ale – Dorchester’s Brew – 4.7% ABV – Pale Ale
Hazy Shade of Winter – 6% ABV NE IPA

Castle Island’s New Taproom Opens This Weekend

Castle Island BrewingNorwood’s very own Castle Island Brewing, a brewery which opened in late 2015, has happily announced that after many weeks of work, that their new and expanded taproom will be open to the public as early as this upcoming weekend.

The numerous upgrades will feature food options such as chips, salsa and guacamole as well as food truck options during the weekend evenings. But better yet is the increased capacity and seating, as they’ll now be able to host over a hundred people at the time in their welcoming taproom.

And best news yet is the fact that they’ll also now have up to sixteen draft lines for everyone to enjoy!

Here’s a preview of their newly upgraded taproom courtesy of Bostinno:

And if you’re wondering when you can start enjoying this taproom? How about tomorow starting at 11AM? Yes, that’s right. What are you all waiting for?

Castle Island Brewing is located at 31 Astor Avenue, Norwood, MA 02062.

Trillium’s New Fort Point Plans Unveiled

Trillium BrewingLate last year we had announced that Trillium Brewing‘s Fort Point location, their original place of business, would be moving and expanding within Fort Point in the next year or two with not just revamped, expanded taproom, but also a restaurant. Since that announcement was made, not many details had been released up until today when BostInno was able to unveil a series of exclusive details.

If all goes according to plan, Trillium will open its new, two-story, 16,000-square-foot brewery, taproom, and full-service restaurant at 47 Farnsworth Street by mid to late 2018.

Below is a mockup of what the exterior could look like:

That’s right folks, we now have an address and while it won’t be opening this year, the Tetreaults have said that they intend on making it one of the coolest spots to grab a beer at within Boston. In the interim, people will also be able to enjoy some of their beers (or some wine) at their upcoming beer garden which is to open later this summer on the Greenway. More information about that project can be found here.

You can read more about what’s coming on BostInno’s page over here.

As always stay tuned for more updates as things develop.

The new location will be at 47 Farnsworth Street, Boston, MA 02210.

Trillium’s Original, Fort Point Location Will be Relocating in 2017

Trillium BrewingEarlier 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!

Cheers!

Esther

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.

Trillium Tap Room Now Open in Canton!

Trillium BrewingThe long anticipated Trillium Brewing tap room at their Canton brewery is now open!

One caveat is that this is not a place to sit for hours knocking back delicious IPAs.  More in line with tap rooms such as Hill Farmstead, there will be a 20oz limit per person, doled out in four 5oz or two 10oz pours.  This also means no more free 2oz samples, either.

A cool aspect of the facility will be the ability to open a tab in the tap room, then seamlessly purchase bottles, growlers, and other merchandise all on the same bill.  It is dog (leashed) and kid-friendly, as well!

No food will be available on-site initially, but expect food trucks to become a regular staple on weekends.

The Canton brewery was already a cool location to check out even before this opening, so if you haven’t been there yet, we highly encourage you to check it out!

Hours will be Monday-Saturday, Noon-7:30PM with last call coming at 7:00 each evening.

Trillium’s Canton location is located at 110 Shawmut Rd, Canton, MA 02021
