Trillium Brewing Turns One: How a Farmhouse Brewery in Boston Comes To Be.

For a new brewery, time is often the greatest asset and there’s never enough to go around.

So for a one-year-old brewery, even stopping to reflect on how far they’ve come on their anniversary might seem like a luxury. Because, after all, where does one find that time? While stopping at Home Depot when they open at 6 a.m. to pick up parts before heading into the full-time day job? After putting the kids down for an afternoon nap and spending hours on invoicing and inventory? Or on Saturday afternoons sprinting to fill growlers while pouring samples and fielding questions about the brewery from a line of customers that stretches out the door?

Rather, for JC and Esther Tetreault, the owners of Boston’s Trillium Brewing Co., the days pass by in a blur of what needs to get done, while keeping an eye on what the future demands.

“We’ve just been trying to get through every single day and every morning and every afternoon and every night and we just collapse into our beds, hoping to take a step back and take a look at a little bit more of that. That’s why it feels like I can’t believe it’s been a year, and then at the same time, it feels like we’ve been doing this our whole lives already,” says JC.
