Guide Post: Galaxy & Nelson
At Trillium, we're committed to our New England roots through the support of local agricultural systems. Whenever possible, we look to source products grown by nearby suppliers. We've also fostered relationships with suppliers producing some incredibly high quality ingredients all over the world. With Guide Post, we're bridging the gap by combining our favorite raw ingredients from both here and there, with the goal of presenting something that is singular, yet representative of each originating location.
For the first interpretation of Guide Post, we've constructed a grist bill packed with New England-grown grain, malted in Hadley, MA by our dear friends at Valley Malt. Crafted just 100 miles from our brewery, their grain lays the framework for hand-selected lots of two intensely aromatic hop varieties, Australian Galaxy and New Zealand Nelson Sauvin. Guide Post opens with intermingling notes of overripe pineapple and gooseberry, followed by a charge of white grape must and fresh cut grass. Vivid and juicy, with a pleasantly dry finish, Guide Post is a delicious homage to our suppliers.
