Trillium Brewing Company

DSC02786Trillium is a family owned and operated brewery that recently opened up in (not so surprisingly) Fort Point. The spot is small but beautiful, lined with reclaimed wood on every surface. As of now, they’re open Thursday and Friday from 4-7:30 and Saturday from 10-5 for growler purchases. They can’t give out any samples yet, thanks to Boston’s staunch city ordinances banning fun but hopefully that will soon change. Trillium is only the the third production brewery in Boston proper right now and they’re pretty different from their competition. As of my visit, they had the Trillium on tap, a farmhouse ale. I think I’ll always have a soft spot for Trillium and especially their flagship after my first purchase. The growler of Trillium was the only beer in my refrigerator the day of the Boston Marathon bombings and I’ll admit, I managed to finish almost the entire jug by myself as events unfolded. I’m glad that on that day in particular, I was drinking a beer that made me proud of my city and the products that continue to come out of it.
