A tiny but mighty brewery in Fort Point just had a banner year with the opening of a massive outpost in Canton, and now the owners are preparing for another momentous event: expanding and relocating their original space. Trillium Brewing Company will grow its presence in Fort Point, bringing even more beer to the Boston area.
“I'm beyond thrilled to share that we have another expansion in process,” co-founder Esther Tetreault wrote in a blog post. “We are working on plans to relocate our Boston brewery!”
The brewery will announce further plans down the road, but for now, Tetreault shared that she and her husband/co-founder JC Tetreault have a new space in Fort Point under agreement. This will allow the brewery to expand both in terms of space and beer. Trillium’s flagship brewery at 369 Congress St., which first opened in March 2013, notoriously offers only growler, bottle, and can fills at the small space (no samples). Its larger brewery in Canton opened last December and boasts a taproom with both draft and bottled beers available.
Tetreault shared her excitement in the blog post:
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!
Stay tuned for specifics on the location and what’s in store for Trillium in the new year.
Update, 12/31/17: Co-owner Jean-Claude Tetreault told Brewbound that the new space will span more than 15,000 square feet, and it will have a restaurant and a patio. A roof deck bar may be in the cards as well.
