About our Canton location
Our second home in Canton, MA is a 16,000 square foot brewery, retail space, and Taproom located at 110 Shawmut Road. Trillium’s new location serves as our primary production facility with a total theoretical capacity for 35,000bbl brewed annually. This increased volume allows us to more consistently meet our growing demand and offer a wider variety of beers available throughout the year. We employ a 30bbl DME 3-vessel high output brewhouse with 90bbl conical fermenters and brite tanks.
You can look out from our two tasting rooms to the entire production floor and experience the sights, sounds, and smells of brewing, or look up at the oak cooperage in our greatly expanded wild beer program visible on our 5,000 sq. foot barrel mezzanine.
CANTON GENERAL FAQ
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.
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.
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 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.
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?
Unfortunately, no. Per Massachusetts ABCC guidance, we are unable to fill growlers that do not carry indelible Trillium branding and other requisite information.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
LINES ARE TERRIBLE. DO YOU HAVE ANY TIMES THAT ARE SLOWER THAN OTHERS?
Yes, we are open 6 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!
