CANTON GENERAL FAQ

 

DIRECTIONS:

Our Canton brewery & taproom is located at 110 Shawmut Road, Canton MA 02021 in the front of a shared brick industrial building. Follow the railing on the front corner of the building, closest to Shawmut Road, to access our main entrance. 

 

PUBLIC TRANSIT

The Commuter Rail stop at Westwood Station on the Providence/Stoughton Line is about 2 miles from our brewery. From the station we suggest walking, biking, or catching an inexpensive Uber/Lyft depending on your mood (and weather). The Commuter Rail runs every hour or so on off hours; approximately every 20 minutes during peak hours. Please check the schedule on the MBTA website, and remember to plan ahead and check times for your return trip as well.

 

DRIVING

We are conveniently located near the crossroads of 93, 95, and Route 1. GPS will steer you the right way. If you’re planning to enjoy a pour or more in the taproom, please be responsible and share the trip with your designated driver!

 

PARKING

Parking is free in the front half of the main lot of our building. We share this lot with three other businesses so please be respectful of their marked spaces and access. In the event that our allotment of parking is full, a Trillium team member will direct you to designated over-flow parking, just two buildings up on the right at 50 Hudson Rd. Street parking is prohibited by the town and we kindly ask that you don’t park in neighboring lots (we don’t want anyone to get towed!). 

 

MASS BEER BUS

Another fun option we recommend is a ride on the Mass Beer Bus's Brew Hills Tour. Mass Brew Bus comes to Trillium every Wednesday and Friday, and also stops at Castle Island & Dorchester Brewing Co. 

 

GROWLERS OR BOTTLES Or CAns (OR all three)?

We offer a variety of options for enjoying our beer at home, depending on the style: 32oz and 64oz growlers, 16oz cans, and 750ml bottles. 

If you need bags or boxes for packaging we have branded reusable 4-bottle bags available for $3, 6-bottle bags available for $4, paper bags to hold just a few bottles or cans, and cardboard boxes for cases.

If you are interested in purchasing a growler, glass costs $5 (plus tax) for either size 32 or 64 oz. This glass is yours to keep for eternity and refill as frequently as you’d like. Prices for filling your growler vary based on size and what kind of beer.

We have recently updated our growler policy to include non-branded glass. Please read more here about the specifics of what we'll fill that isn't Trillium glass.

WHAT BEERS DO YOU HAVE?

Cans, bottles and growlers available for purchase to-go are listed on signs posted in our retail outlet while draft styles available for enjoyment on-site are listed on signs in our Taproom. All associated pricing, format, and quantity limits (if applicable) are clearly displayed.  

To view the menu's before you visit, our Canton beers page is updated daily with beers available for growlers and bottles along with a separate section for the Taproom draft list. If you don’t already, please follow us on social media for the most recent updates: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. We frequently post what’s on tap, freshly bottled, or newly available and push out a link to our website with the list of available beers (Twitter & Facebook).

We try our best to post on social media when specific beers are running low. 
 

CAN I SWAP MY TRILLIUM GROWLER FOR A DIFFERENT SIZE?

Sure thing! You can swap a clean, ‘like new’ condition 32oz for 64oz or vice versa. The swap is one growler for one growler (we won’t give you two 32oz growlers if you trade in a 64oz).

CAN I HAVE A GROWLER FROM ANOTHER BREWERY (OR BLANK ONE) FILLED?

We have recently updated our growler policy to include non-branded glass. Please read more here about the specifics of what we'll fill that isn't Trillium glass.

I’M ON MY WAY IN BUT FORGOT TO CLEAN MY GROWLER, CAN I EXCHANGE IT?

We’ll give that growler a quick clean in the back of the house. But, if we’re busy, this might take a little while…we don’t want you or others to have to wait so please remember to do your best to make sure it’s clean when you arrive.
 

I HAVE A LARGE GROUP COMING IN AND WOULD LIKE TO SET SOMETHING UP, WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?

We recommend giving us a heads up via e-mail. You can also contact us to ask about booking private events by sending an email to events@trilliumbrewing.com.
 

LINES ARE TERRIBLE. DO YOU HAVE ANY TIMES THAT ARE SLOWER THAN OTHERS? 

Yes, we are open 7 days a week, and our shop tends to be less busy on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and toward the end of Thursday. Our peak times tend to be Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon or when we have a highly anticipated beer release.
 

DO YOU OFFER TOURS?

We are unable to offer tours at this time. However, our Canton space is designed with an open-air architectural concept which allows you to view most areas of the brewery, including the production floor, from each of the tasting room areas. Our team is always on hand to discuss how we got started and how we operate, what the latest brews have been and what we’ve got planned in the future. Just ask on your next visit!
 

HOW CAN I GET SOME cans or BOTTLES?

Cans and bottles are for sale at our retail shop. Please check for daily updates here and on social media to see which bottles are available for sale.
 

WILL YOU SELL ME A KEG?

Sorry, we do not sell kegs to the public at this time.

FORT POINT FAQ

DIRECTIONS:

Our brewery is located at 50 Thomson Place, Boston MA 02210 in the growing, bustling Fort Point Channel neighborhood of South Boston. We are located at the end of Thomson Place. We've provided the following tips to make your visit as seamless and stress-free as possible regardless of your chosen mode of transportation.

PUBLIC TRANSIT

The closest T stop is the Red Line’s South Station stop, a leisurely 7 minute walk to the brewery. The SL1 Bus’s Courtyard stop is also just down the street and goes to/from Logan Airport. A number of additional bus lines operate throughout the area (including some that drop/pick up right at the corner of Congress and A Street). Please check here for a comprehensive guide to convenient public transit options available in our area.

BIKING

Biking is easily one of the best ways to get around town quickly, particularly when the roads are snarled with cars. Both Thomson Place and the adjacent Seaport Blvd have a number of bike racks. Also, as it turns out, two growlers (wrapped in some T shirts for padding/stability) fit conveniently in a Hubway bike’s front rack. The closest Hubway station is located near Dunkin Donuts at 330 Congress Street.

DRIVING/PARKING

Driving to, from, and within Boston can be challenging, but there are times when it's actually very easy to make the commute to our Fort Point location. We’re located very close to ramps for 93N, 93S and Mass Pike; GPS directions are generally accurate. We don’t offer any parking spots dedicated to the brewery, but there are a ton of nearby parking garages and affordable metered spots available- bring your quarters! Meter spots are easiest to find between 3:30-5PM during the week, as people are usually leaving work for the night. Early afternoon on Saturday is actually the easiest time to find a metered parking spot.

ARE DOGS ALLOWED?

Unfortunately, we are unable to welcome dogs into our restaurant and brewery at 50 Thomson Place. We love our 4-legged friends, but due to our status as a food service establishment we have a no dogs policy for sanitary reasons.

ARE KIDS ALLOWED?

Absolutely. Trillium Fort Point is a family friendly facility. Our kids dining menu is available during all open hours.

WHERE CAN I CHECK OUT THE FOOD MENU?

Our food menu changes relatively frequently to utilize seasonal produce and fresh ingredients. The latest version can always be found on our website.

HOW DO I MAKE A RESERVATION?

At this time, we can only take reservations for those planning to dine with us on the second floor. Our first floor taproom area is first come, first served. If you’d like to make a table reservation to enjoy a meal, please head to our Reserve web page.

I HAVE A LARGE GROUP COMING IN AND WOULD LIKE TO SET SOMETHING UP, WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?

If you’re hoping to schedule a private event, please head over to our events page to fill out an info form for our events team. If you’re a large group hoping to set up a visit, we recommend giving us a call - 857-449-0083.

GROWLERS OR BOTTLES OR CANS (OR all three)?

We offer a variety of options for enjoying our beer at home, depending on the style: 32oz and 64oz growlers, 16oz cans, 330ml bottles and 750ml bottles.

Our retail counter is located on the first floor on the back wall of the taproom. After you enter, proceed past the host stand to the left and you’ll find the retail line in front of you. Purchases can be made before or after you enjoy food and beers - please note we are unable to hold onto beer for you if you choose to purchase prior to enjoying our on-site offerings!

If you are interested in purchasing a growler, glass costs $5 (plus tax) for either size 32 or 64 oz. This glass is yours to keep for eternity and refill as frequently as you’d like. Prices for filling your growler vary based on size and what kind of beer. We have recently updated our growler policy to include non-branded glass. Please read more here about the specifics of what we'll fill that isn't Trillium glass.

HOW TO DECIDE?

The crew is incredibly knowledgeable and very experienced at describing flavor profiles, recipe variations, and making recommendations based on your tastes and comparable styles. Please ask questions and let us know what you like!

We offer full pours of all beers on our draft list. While we do not offer flights, we are happy to pour you a small taste of something to help you choose.

We also post on Twitter when specific beers are running low. With such small batch rotating selections it’s possible the beer you want will be sold out before you visit. We do our best to give you a heads up.
