PRESS RELEASE / September 10, 2018 (Canton, MA) – Today, we’re excited to officially publicize steps towards one of our biggest goals: Trillium Farm & Brewery. This summer we bought a beautiful farm in North Stonington, CT, less than two hours drive from our homes in Boston and Canton. Although this milestone announcement comes nestled between a summer that saw us host our first Field Trip festival, and a fall that brings the opening of our Fort Point restaurant, Trillium Farm & Brewery has been in the works for many a season.
We always dreamt of building our future and a New England farmhouse brewery not far from the venue where we were married in a pastoral region of CT. To actually establish roots for Trillium, we opened in our tiny downtown Boston home in Fort Point. But we stayed true to the vision: sourcing from our neighbors whenever possible, brewing with the seasons, and representing styles that speak to our region’s agricultural heritage. Trillium is a reflection of the rich landscape and history of New England.
Trillium Farm & Brewery will mirror the same values, with an immense capacity to expand our community impact. Our intention is to brew estate-grown beers, establish an agriculture program to feed our restaurant and breweries, and create a destination for you to share experiences with us, family, and friends. Trillium is our way of life, we have a spirit and a culture that flows beyond the glass. Our last few years have been spent building a team and creating events to share with you, and we look forward to continuing that mission for years to come.
For as long as it took us to find our perfect farmland, it will take just as long to build the brewery, prepare for events, and develop the agriculture program of our dreams. Our imminent focus is on opening our brewery and restaurant in Fort Point to continue our goal of creating community spaces to share Trillium with family and friends. We’re excited about the ability we finally have to connect all of our experiences in time: think fresh produce from the farm for dinner on the roof deck in Fort Point while drinking Congress Street IPA packaged that morning in Canton.
We’ll have plenty of stories, discoveries, and new challenges along the way that we can’t wait to share with you. You are part of our story, and this chapter is shaping up to be a special one.

About Trillium Brewing Trillium Brewing Company was founded by JC and Esther Tetreault, a young dumb couple in love, planning their wedding and dreaming about how they would spend their lives together. The desire to build a brewery was about more than just making beer, it was about creating a way of life and building a community with which to share experiences. A beer geek and botany nerd, JC chose the trillium flower to represent what we strive to bring to our beer and our lives: beauty, strength, simplicity, and balance.
Trillium opened in March 2013 with the support of family, friends, community, and three employees. That small brewery has since developed into an exciting venue of collaboration and creativity. Trillium is grounded in the concept of a New England farmhouse brewery, using local ingredients whenever possible. From our wild ales, fermented with our native New England mixed microbe culture, to our more hop-forward offerings, we aim to produce beer that is both approachable and engaging.
Our flagship location is tucked in the vibrant Fort Point neighborhood of South Boston where we utilize practices representing both tradition and modern re-invention. We find inspiration in the heritage of farmhouse brewing methods while actively employing novel concepts and technologies. In December 2015, we opened a larger production facility and taproom in Canton, MA, allowing us to significantly increase production for greater availability and expanded variety. A new flagship brewery and restaurant is under construction in Fort Point and planned to open mid-2018.
