Trillium Brewing Company is moving forward with plans to move and expand within its own backyard, opening a two-level brewery, taproom, and restaurant — and hopefully a roof deck — in Fort Point some time next year, as BostInno reports.
After dropping the news that the brewery’s home space would be joined by a larger venue where fans could actually drink beer, founders JC and Esther Tetreault kept the details quiet but have finally revealed the location of the new project.
Trillium’s forthcoming location will occupy two levels at 47 Farnsworth St. — a grand total of 16,000 square feet. There will be a 10-barrel brewing capacity, a full-service taproom (like Trillium’s operation in Canton), a patio, and retail space, with a full-service restaurant on the second level that will feature wood-fired cooking. The Tetreaults are also hoping to gain approval for a rooftop terrace.
“We’ve got a lot to do before we hope to open at the end of 2018: lease execution, neighborhood review process, zoning board of appeals, not to mention design, permitting, and build out, menu testing (for now we’re thinking modern New England farmhouse but it’ll be mostly chef-driven), hiring, etc.” the Tetreaults wrote in a blog post on the brewery’s website.
Construction could start as early as the end of the summer. Given the high demand for Trillium beer on its home turf, the expansion comes at a good time for the growing brewery, which will also operate a beer garden on the Rose Kennedy Greenway this summer. The flagship Fort Point brewery at 369 Congress St notoriously offers only growler fills and can pick-ups, not samples or pours. Trillium’s Canton brewery opened last summer.
