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
