Keep Cold. Drink Fresh. We're Always Making More!

Daily Serving Keep Cold

We are obsessive in our focus on quality. We hire some of the most talented people in our industry, continually evaluate our processes, making improvements wherever possible, cultivate a robust lab and sensory program, and invest in expensive brewing equipment such as a Flottweg decanter, centrifuge, flash pasteurizer, and more. All of this is done with one goal in mind: to ensure that the beer in your glass is memorable, adds enjoyment and value to your lives, and is exactly what we intended it to be.

While we take every precaution possible to achieve this goal, once our beer leaves any one of our locations, we surrender control over the storage and treatment of those cans and bottles. Ultimately, it is our responsibility to provide you with the information necessary to preserve quality and freshness until the day you crack the beer open. The science behind the optimal drinking experience is complex, however, it can all be simplified by following two key principles: Keep Cold. Drink Fresh. We’re always making more!

STORAGE TEMPERATURE:

This one is easy: store Trillium beer cold! Standard refrigerator temperatures are best, between 38 - 42ºF. If you’re unable to refrigerate the beer shortly after purchasing, bring a cooler with you. Storing beer any warmer, no matter the style, will accelerate the aging process. This is particularly vital when it comes to our hoppy and heavily fruited canned beers. Styles that are heavily hopped or utilize real fruit, such as our Daily Serving Series*, contain compounds that are notably fragile and susceptible to expedited aging at warmer temperatures. While our bottled Imperial Stouts and Wild Ales do age more gracefully than the majority of our canned beers, we recommend that you store them no warmer than cellar temperature (50 - 60ºF).

FRESHNESS:

Every can and bottle that rolls off our packaging line receives a printed date and time stamp. We keep it plain and straightforward, avoiding complicated codes. You can find these stamps on the underside of our cans and on the bottom, right corner of our bottle labels. While the freshness timeline will vary based on the beer style, we always recommend drinking any beer as fresh as possible. We release our beer when it is tasting the way we desire it to and the vast majority of the canned beers that we release are intended to be consumed within weeks of their packaging date.

BOTTLE STORAGE:

It’s recommended that bottles with a metal cap and real fruit or other adjuncts be stored vertically. This ensures that any sediment (adjunct, fruit, yeast, or protein) settles to the bottom of the bottle. When pouring a bottle that has been aging for a period of time, it’s best to pour slowly, carefully to limit the disruption of any accumulated sediment. Using natural products, such as coconut flakes, cacao nibs, real almond, etc. contributes a more natural and complex aroma, but is the reason why we see additional sediment. As a reminder, while not attractive, this material is not harmful nor a sign of the beer “going bad”. All bottles should be stored in a cool, dry, and dark location.

*A NOTE ABOUT DAILY SERVING:

Introduced in the Fall of 2019, our Daily Serving Series is a lineup of fruited, Berliner Weisse-inspired offerings. We use A LOT of real fruit in these beers and therefore they must be kept cold and enjoyed as fresh as possible. We take every precaution possible to avoid refermentation in the package, which can result in can protrusion, and in the worst cases, can cause the cans to burst. Each batch is flash pasteurized prior to packaging, killing 99.999% of any remaining yeast in the beer. We have worked with the manufacturer of the pasteurizer to further optimize our procedures and minimize and risk moving forward. Despite this advanced caution, we still highly encourage all Daily Serving cans to be stored cold at all times.

It Just Looked So Crazy

Congress Street is our beloved, signature IPA - and the first one we ever brewed! More than seven years after we first offered it to the public, we asked JC to take a few moments to reflect on the recipe’s intent and initial release back in 2013.
