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

Trillium Turns 1, Announces New Bottles And Anniversary Party

Trillium BrewingDid you know that Trillium Brewing was turning a year old on March 21st 2014? We can’t believe it! And with this in mind, they’ve made a big announcement and will be celebrating over the course of next week with new bottles releases and a party over at Publick House in Brookline.

We sincerely hope that you’re not too busy next week because this is what they have scheduled:

– Tuesday March 18th, 4PM: Wild Trillium Bottle Release
Wild Trillium is a version of their flagship Trillium Farmhouse Ale that has been aged for over 9 months in single oak barrels with some wild yeast. It’s not very heavy on the lactic acid and is more of a brett/light lacto kind of beer. The bottles are 375ml in size, and there will be a 2 bottle per person limit.

– Wednesday March 19th, 7PM: Anniversary Party
You can join the entire Trillium staff and fans over at The Publick House in Brookline to celebrate their anniversary. Nine of their beers will be available on tap including their yet-to-be-named double 8.4% double IPA that will be making it’s debut there. There will also be that Wild Ale available and the staff at Publick House will also be serving a special menu to top everything off. Sound like fun? You can see more details about it on the event’s Facebook page right over here.

– Friday March 21st, noon: Double IPA release
Starting at noon and up until 7:30PM that day, their newly introduced double IPA will be available for growler fills at the brewery. There will be a two 64oz growler limit per customer or four 32oz limit for those who want the smaller size. Can’t make it? A bunch of bars who regularly carry Trillium beers will be getting a single keg of it (think Row 34, Publick House and a few others) so be on the lookout for more updates in regards to this.

– Saturday March 22nd, 10AM: Cuvee de Tetreault bottle release
Last but not least, to cap this busy week off, they will be releasing bottles of Cuvee de Tetreault, an 11% A.B.V. wildly fermented Belgian Strong Dark Ale aged on black currants and French oak. They had previously released that beer at least year’s Belgian Beer Festival and have now bottled the rest. This is a very limited release so the limit will be a one 375ml bottle per customer.

We wish them a great week ahead and more information can be found on Trillium’s website right over here.
