The Emerald Necklace series tells a foundational piece of the Trillium Brewing story. If you’ve visited our home of Boston, you’ve likely encountered and enjoyed a section of the Emerald Necklace. Beginning downtown at the Boston Common and Public Garden, extending out to Back Bay, and all the way to Dorchester, this 1,100 acre, seven-mile-long public park system is a cherished green oasis in the heart of the city. Years ago, JC cultivated a plot in the Fenway Victory Gardens, where he grew edible and decorative plants, trees, and even some hop bines!
Featuring the largest standing body of water in the entire park system, the 4th addition to our Emerald Park series takes us to Jamaica Pond. Golden yellow and moderately hazy in appearance, Amarillo's bright citrus aromas draw us in. Notes of tangerine peel, lemon verbena, and makrut lime pop upfront, eventually giving way to Simcoe's pine-forward dank character. Finishing dry with just enough bitterness, Jamaica Pond's scrubby carbonation leaves the palate refreshed and ready for the next sip.
