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!
Named after Emerald Necklace architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Olmsted Park features a chain of fresh-water ponds and a dual-path system that residents and visitors to Brookline can enjoy year-round. The third release in the series highlights a pair of Southern Hemisphere hops, offering a vibrant and fresh drinking experience. Brewed with Galaxy and Nelson, Olmsted pours a glowing golden yellow with a soft and inviting haze. Flavors shift from tropical mango smoothie and pineapple juice to more citrus-forward orange pith and lemon zest notes throughout the course of each sip. Medium-bodied with a finish that never fatigues the palate, Olmsted is a true joy to drink.
