Trillium Brewing Company was founded by JC and Esther Tetreault, a young dumb couple in love, planning their wedding and dreaming about how they would spend their lives together. 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. A beer geek and botany nerd, JC chose the trillium flower to represent what we strive to bring to our beer and our lives: beauty, strength, simplicity, and balance.
Trillium opened in March 2013 with the support of family, friends, community, and three employees. That small brewery has since developed into an exciting venue of collaboration and creativity. Trillium is grounded in the concept of a New England farmhouse brewery, using local ingredients whenever possible. From our wild ales, fermented with our native New England mixed microbe culture, to our more hop-forward offerings, we aim to produce beer that is both approachable and engaging.
Our first location was tucked in the vibrant Fort Point neighborhood of South Boston where we utilized practices representing both tradition and modern re-invention. We find inspiration in the heritage of farmhouse brewing methods while actively employing novel concepts and technologies. In December 2015, we opened a larger production facility and taproom in Canton, MA, allowing us to significantly increase production for greater availability and expanded variety. A new brewery and full restaurant opened at 50 Thomson Place, just around the corner from our original location in Fort Point, in October 2018.
As a small but growing business we’ll be needing to add to our family of staff from time to time. You can click the below link to see if there are any current jobs available.
