PRESS RELEASE / March 15, 2019 (Boston, MA) – To celebrate the Trillium Garden on The Greenway opening for the year, we’re excited to announce our newest beer. Central Artery is a Helles Lager that pays tribute to Boston’s open air spaces. Though the name Central Artery is no longer used to describe the strip of land that we inhabit on the Rose Kennedy Greenway, to us it rings truer than ever. The conversion of this area into a community gather space has brought together many disparate parts of the city that were previously closed off to each other. Gazing out at the beautiful Rose Kennedy Greenway, we feel so much pride for this central location where events and activities exist in a way the city hadn’t really seen before. We’re excited to spend a third summer in this hub of Boston culture and look forward to raising many a beer with you.
Pouring a beautifully striking bright gold color with a creamy white head, Central Artery displays a wonderfully vibrant nose balancing malty aromas of freshly baked, flour dusted rolls and lightly toasted barley with a gentle noble hop profile of dried wildflowers. Cleanly fermented, the palate follows the nose closely with pleasantly sweet notes of kneaded biscuit dough and bread crust. Refreshing and quenchable with a light rounded body, fully reserved level of bitterness and soft, drying finish, Central Artery proudly honors this classic Bavarian style as the signature house lager of our own beer garden.

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 Garden is our growing initiative to cultivate temporary seasonal spaces in which to enjoy our beer. By welcoming the city-going population and bringing in guest beers from out of town breweries, we aim to create a one-of-a-kind experience for Boston’s beer-lovers.
In 2017 and 2018 we planted roots on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in downtown Boston in partnership with the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. In the winter of 2017-18 we occupied the historic Roslindale Substation. The summer of 2019 will see us returning to the Rose Kennedy Greenway – our opening date is May 16!
