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

Fort Point and Seaport: Best Neighborhoods For Beer Lovers

By Tara Scott-Johnson, Trulia

Beer lovers rejoice! The artisan craft of brewing beer is booming in Boston once again. Since 1796, Bostonians have crafted and brewed beer. Boston was considered to be one of the premier beer brewing cities in the United States during the 1800s. In line with Boston’s rich history, breweries, beer halls, and beer related events continue to spring up in Boston. The neighborhoods of Fort Point and Seaport are topping the list of the best neighborhoods for beer lovers with these local favorites.

Fort Point

Trillium Brewing Company, located at 369 Congress Street, opened in 2013 in the Fort Point neighborhood of South Boston. Trillium is a New England farmhouse style brewery. Each day, Trillium updates their case and bottle availability on Twitter. Their fresh batches are sold on a first come, first serve basis. Their daily offerings include Pale Ale, Boston Stout, and Imperial Stout – brewed with coffee, vanilla beans, and cardamom. While sampling is not available at the Fort Point location, sampling and full pours are available at their newly opened Canton location. If you’re looking for fresh oysters and unique beers, Row 34, located on 383 Congress Street, is the perfect spot in Fort Point. Row 34’s rotating list of 24 draft lines along with delicious menu items such as the warm buttered lobster roll will satisfy your seafood and beer cravings.

Seaport

Harpoon Brewery & Beer Hall is open daily in Boston’s Seaport District at 306 Northern Avenue. In the beer hall, a Harpoon Beer Captain will serve you a pint from the tap and a fresh pretzel to pair with your brewed draft. Brewery tours are available daily and include the sampling of freshly crafted beer for a mere $5 per person. If you’re looking to brew a few cases of your own handcrafted beer, Hopster’s was voted as one of the top 50 businesses in the U.S. & Boston’s Beer Craft Beer experience. The company plans to open a brewery on Sleeper Street in 2017. Craft Beer Cellar, a specialty beer store originally from Belmont, MA, has expanded their locations to Fort Point. Craft Beer Cellar’s expansive collection of 1,000 beers from 350 breweries will be sure to fulfill your hankering for tasty suds. Be sure to check out their new location on Farnsworth Street opening in 2017.

Event Coming Soon

Nearby Fenway Park is hosting the annual Big Country Boston Beer Crawl on Saturday, August 20, 2016. The event will include 10 local bars, 5 country bands, 5 DJs, drink specials and much more. Tickets are on sale now – early bird tickets are just $15 – with a free Big Country Boston hat included with your ticket purchase.

You can see this event and many more over on our events page.

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.

More information including what is currently available on tap can be found at http://www.trilliumbrewing.com/trillium-brewing-canton-location

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

Hopster’s Eyes Expansion In Fort Point

HopstersWith two locations already under their belt in Newton Corner and near Faneuil Hall, it appears that Hopster’s has found another potential location in Fort Point.

According to Facebook: Hopster’s Hopsters has identified a new 6,000 sq.ft location in the Boston Seaport/Fort Point Channel and will reach an agreement very soon!

Many of our customers have asked us to expand our brewery and brewing concept, bringing our great local craft beers and food to downtown Boston. We believe the Fort Point Channel is a great area and in much need of a Craft Brewery and Restaurant.”

Rumors had previously swirled when Hopster’s had been looking at a spot on Melcher Street nearly two years ago but ended up going to the Boston Public Market instead. With these new plans for Fort Point, it looks like Trillium and Fort Point Market will be getting a new neighbor although the exact location has yet to be made public. It also appears that the area will be getting a Craft Beer Cellar franchise as well, making the area a true craft beer destination, joining both Harpoon and Row 34, as well.

As always, stay tuned for updates!

Trillium Brewing’s Canton Location Opening Tomorrow

Trillium BrewingAbout ten months ago we had posted about Trillium Brewing‘s new location which would be opening later this year out in Canton. Well fast forward through some new hiring, a lot of hard work and some brand new tanks and the brewhouse and taproom are now ready to host their loyal fans. JC and Esther have officially announced that the brewery will be making its public debut tomorrow after playing host to a few soft openings over the course of the last few days.

The new 16,000 FT² facility has an open floor design where a variety of beers have already been produced and released in the last few weeks including Launch Beer, Scaled and most recently Free Rise. It will also feature a taproom where 2oz complimentary samples will ve available as well as a retail space for merchandise, growler fills and bottles.

To celebrate this milestone, they will be closing their Fort Point location in Boston tomorrow so that their entire crew can be in Canton to celebrate, and they will then resume their regular hours of operation from Tuesday on. Tomorrow’s hours in Canton are from noon to 7:30PM. After tomorrow both locations will have the following hours of operation:

  • Monday: 4-7:30PM
  • Tuesday: 4-7:30PM
  • Wednesday: 4-7:30PM
  • Thursday: 12-7:30PM
  • Friday: 12-7:30PM
  • Saturday: 12-6PM

You can find out more information about the Canton location on a special page located here.

Right now ten beers are available in Fort Point while six are in Canton but expect things to change as things settle down and they figure out the logistics out between both breweries so make sure to keep checking the availability page or their Twitter feed for updates.

The Canton brewery is located at 110 Shawmut Road, Canton, MA 02021.

Trillium Brewing Announces Expansion, New Brewery Plans

Trillium BrewingBoston’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.

You can find out more about this announcement on Trillium Brewing’s website.
