Humulus U Pre-Party
We’re pumped to host the pre-party for Brewer’s Supply Group’s Humulus U! Humulus U is a one day, educational forum on all things hops for brewing professionals. The forum takes place in Boston this Thursday November 13th, but since there’s a bunch of brewers coming in to town, BSG wanted to host a welcoming pre-party the night before on the 12th and they asked Trillium to host! So we’re closing the retail shop down a little early Wednesday November 12th at 6PM so we can welcome Humulus U keynote speaker Sam Calagione, founder and president of Dogfish Head Brewery. Sam will be pouring 90 minute IPA through 2 different Randalls packed with new hop varieties (Jaryllo and El Dorado). Trillium brewed a special beer for this party…a pale ale absolutely packed from beginning to end with a newer hop variety called Polaris. We’ve never brewed with Polaris before so this was our chance to get to know it inside and out. While the pre-party is limited to attendees of Humulus U (contact BSG to register), we’re alsoreleasing Polaris Pale Ale for growler fills at 4PM on Wednesday November 12th and on draft to a few of our accounts.
Beer Release: Vicinity
Trillium teamed up with Row 34 to a special beer on Friday October 24th that takes advantage of our walk-the-kegs-across-the-alley proximity. Vicinity is a beer that is best when ultra fresh. Lets face it, Row 34 can absolutely rip through Trillium’s beer so we brewed a beautifully hazy blonde double IPA busting at the seams with citrus oil, dank pine resin and tropical fruit from the Citra, Columbus and Galaxy and crisp, dry, bitter finish. Vicinity will be released at Row34 on Thursday November 13th right after its packaged.Vicinity will also be available for growler fills at the brewery starting at noon on Thursday (limit 1 gallon per person). We’ll open on Thursdays from noon-730PM from now on, too!
Beer Release: Stonington
Stonington is a New England Wild Saison fermented with a native New England mixed microbe culture captured from grape skins from the vineyard where Trillium founders JC and Esther Tetreault were married. This beer captures the essence of what we envisioned when we conceived of the brewery a few years back and is the first of many beers brewed with this native New England culture. Stonington has been aged for just over a year in spirits casks from Grand Ten Distilling and was originally released on draft at Lord Hobo for our beer dinner on October 27th. Stonington will be available in 750ml bottles at the brewery on Tuesday November 18th as well as rolling out to a few bottle shops.
Beer Release: Double Pot & Kettle
Double Pot & Kettle was originally brewed for the Armsby Abbey’s Anniversary Dinner this summer and there just weren’t enough bottles to last even a few days at the brewery. We immediately brewed another batch (this time, a 10bbl batch) and it has been conditioning on American Oak and Vanilla beans since late summer. We expect to release Double Pot&Kettle on Wednesday November 19th at 4PM in 375ml bottles, limit 6 per person.
