Reflecting on 2019

Permutation 6.50

The beginning of each year always acts as a time of reflection, but as we enter a new decade, this one feels a bit more significant. 2019 was a banner year for all of us at Trillium. We reveled in our first full calendar year in our Fort Point brewery and restaurant, laid roots in the Fenway with our new greenhouse-inspired taproom and brewery, secured our future in Canton with our ‘forever home’, and celebrated our sixth year in business. It’s difficult to wrap our heads around all of the experiences we’ve shared with you throughout the past 12 months. To gain some perspective, we’ve recapped 2019 in numbers:

Beer

Beer is at the center of everything we do, and 2019 was a record-setting year for our brewing team. A few core values have always driven our approach to our beer portfolio: the desire to continue pushing boundaries of experimentation with education, keeping a focus on hospitality by attempting to offer a wide range of styles for a diverse audience, and keeping our team excited and always-learning. With five active brewhouses in four locations, we released 274 unique beers throughout the calendar year, an 85% increase over 2018. Of those singular offerings, 204 (74%) of them were brand new recipes, and 48 were collaborations. Here’s the breakdown of our 2019 portfolio by style:

  • IPA - 57 - 20.80%

  • DIPA - 43 - 15.69%

  • Imperial/Barrel-Aged/Dessert Stout - 37 - 13.50%

  • Farmhouse & Wild Ale - 35 - 12.77%

  • Pale Ale - 30 - 10.95%

  • Lager - 26 - 9.49%

  • Gose & Berliner Weisse - 17 - 6.20%

  • Porter & Stout - 6.20%

  • TIPA+ - 12 - 4.38%

     

    Food

2019 was an incredibly delicious year. The Trillium Fort Point kitchen team served a staggering amount of dishes all while retaining a focus on sourcing as local as possible. Our New England farmhouse-inspired menu is guided by our commitment to sustainable agriculture and creating a positive environmental impact. This could not be accomplished without our partners at Eastern Standard Provisions, Island Creek Oysters, Plimoth Grist Mill, Sid Wainer & Son, and the 27 other local purveyors we had the pleasure of working with throughout 2019. In our first full year, we served:

  • Over 36,000 Island Creek oysters

  • 23,616 Eastern Standard Provisions pretzels

  • 6,400 pounds of lobster

  • More than 45 tons of potatoes

     

     

  • Events

    From throwing a trap show to hosting a knitting group, the experiences we shared with you all were some of the most rewarding projects we worked on in 2019. From large public events to restaurant pop-ups and intimate private parties, we hosted more gatherings than ever before. In Fort Point, we hosted 323 private events including surprise engagement parties, an NFL meet-and-greet, a Klask meet up, corporate outings, and much more. We were also grateful to collaborate with some of our friends and inspirations in the food and dining industry, hosting pop-ups with America’s Test Kitchen, Eaux, Eventide, Highroller Lobster Co., and Ivan Ramen. Of course, there were beer-centric events as well, with over 5,000 attendees joining us for our six major events:

  • 6th Anniversary Party - March 23rd, 2019

  • Trillium 5K - May 19th, 2019

  • 2nd Annual Field Trip - August 10th, 2019

  • Lobster Trap - October 19th, 2019

  • Trillium Fort Point 1st Anniversary - October 29th, 2019

  • Family Reach Fall Flip - November 10th, 2019

     

    Philanthropy

    None of the above would be possible without the support of our communities. Founded on the values of community and family, our growth has only clarified our intention and increased our ability to support causes that are close to our hearts and roots. In 2019, we were able to donate over $120,000 to nearly 40 different recipients. The results of these donations are powerful:

  • Through our work with Family Reach, we were able to help provide rent/mortgage payments for 90 families, transportation costs for 120 families, and winter electricity payments for 40 families battling a cancer diagnosis.

  • Proceeds from Rising Hope IPA funded 225 hours of research time for doctors and scientists at the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation.

  • Contributions to the Pink Boots Society helped the Boston chapter offer 18 scholarships to women pursuing a career in brewing.

  • Proceeds from the Sake of the Sea IPA supported The New England Aquarium’s research and vital ocean conservation efforts here in Boston as well as around the globe.

  • The above is proof that together we’re capable of accomplishing so much in just one year’s time. It’s also clear that we can, and will, do more moving forward. As we continue to realize our founding dream of becoming a modern New England farmhouse brewery, we strengthen our focus on the core values of Trillium. We are fully dedicated to evolving our impact on our communities and improving the local agricultural economy, with the ultimate goal of elevating the quality of the experiences, food, and beer that we offer.

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

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.
