Tap lines are in place and Trillium is ready to start pouring beers for visitors to Boston’s first open-air beer garden, located on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in the city’s downtown area. Trillium’s founders Esther and JC Tetreault hosted friends and family at the new outdoor spot yesterday and will soon open to the public, according to Boston Magazine, offering eight different tapped beers, plus wine from Westport Rivers.
The Fort Point brewery forged a partnership with the Greenway Conservancy to operate the beer garden throughout the summer and into October, as previously reported. The Tetreaults have a beer trailer set up on a brick patio near Rowes Wharf, with custom fencing, lighting, and counters for drink service, plus seating at picnic tables, benches, and high-top tables to accommodate roughly 250 people. There will be no food for sale, but visitors will be welcome to bring their own food, including from the extensive lineup of food trucks and carts that regularly set up shop on the Greenway.
The Trillium Garden will be open Wednesday through Friday from 4 to 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. More development remains in the pipeline for Trillium as the Tetreaults prepare to expand their presence in Fort Point with a full-service restaurant, brewery, and outdoor patio at a new location on Farnsworth Street.
Update, 3 p.m.: The Trillium Garden opens today, June 1, at 4 p.m.
