The desire to build a brewery was about more than just making beer, it was about creating a way of life and building a community with which to share experiences.
Trillium Brewing was founded in March of 2013 by JC and Esther Tetreault with the desire to create a New England Farmhouse-inspired experience through the lens of craft beer. Launched with three employees and the support of family, friends, and community, our little brewery located at 369 Congress Street in Boston’s then-sleepy Fort Point neighborhood has grown to a team of nearly 300. Every member of our organization has incredible drive and purpose, working passionately each day to elevate the quality of the Trillium experience.
Trillium is grounded in the concept of a New England farmhouse brewery, using local ingredients whenever possible.
Beer is at the center of everything we do, and a few core values have always driven the approach to our portfolio: the desire to continue pushing boundaries of experimentation with education, keeping a focus on hospitality by attempting to offer a wide range of styles for a diverse audience, and keeping our team excited and always-learning. With hundreds of unique offerings available each year, we take pride in the diversity and breadth of beer that we produce.
Our philosophy with food aims to enforce our New England roots. Working closely with more than 30 local vendors, the restaurant at Trillium Fort Point shines the spotlight on nearby agricultural systems with the ultimate goal of responsibly growing fresh fruit and produce at our Connecticut farm.
Behind every beer poured and each plate served is an intense focus on community. From carbon dioxide recapture and reuse at our production brewery, to using sustainably-farmed ingredients for our menu whenever possible, it’s imperative that we minimize our footprint and do our part to ensure that the future is brighter because of it. Through our philanthropic initiatives, we’re able to work closely with partner organizations to support causes that are close to our hearts and roots.
New England is our home. With two year-round locations in the Fort Point and Fenway neighborhoods, as well as a seasonal beer garden on the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston is the heart of our operations. Our production brewery and taproom in Canton and our soon-to-be operational farm in North Stonington, Connecticut round out our five current locations. In the coming years, visitors to Canton will enjoy our ‘forever home’. Located less than five miles from the current Trillium Canton, and will include a larger taproom, restaurant, and brewery.
