BOSTON – Trillium Brewing Company began brewing operations last week in their Fort Point Channel facility after receiving their Certificate of Occupancy from the City of Boston. More than two years in the making by owners JC and Esther Tetreault, Trillium is now one of just three production breweries in Boston. They will launch with their eponymous flagship, Trillium, a pale farmhouse style ale.
“From the initial demolition to pilot batch brewing, we were lucky to be surrounded by all the support we needed to create a beautiful space in the city that we’re finally ready to share,” JC said of the buildout. “I can’t tell you what a relief it is to have beer fermenting in the tanks.”
Adam Goodwin, Trillium’s Brewer, shares what drew him to Trillium and encouraged him to move to Boston to help the family-owned business start production. “As an urban farmhouse-style brewery Trillium will be delivering truly unique beers with a strong focus on local ingredients, right down to special beers brewed with our locally harvested wild yeast. This means a strong connection to the local community, agriculture, and microbiology.”
Trillium will continue to release each of four year-round styles over the next few months. They will also offer new and innovative small batch beers as well as initiate a barrel program to create special release wild and sour beers. Trillium will be available at a limited number of select accounts and through retail at the 369 Congress Street brewery in Boston. Leading up to the initial launch plans and opening of the retail space, Trillium has opened their online merchandise shop through their website.
