In this 2016 file photo, Trillium Beer drinkers line up at the brewing company’s Canton taproom. Trillium just opened its new Fort Point location on Friday, Oct. 19, 2018.

The wait is over for Trillium Brewing Company’s new Fort Point location.

While the grand opening isn’t until Oct. 29, the new brewery and restaurant opened its doors on Friday, and the crowds streamed in.

Located at 50 Thomson Place, the brick building is three floors of food and brewed goodness. According to the Trillium website, customers can try on-site brewed beer in the first floor, New England farmhouse-style food on the second floor, and a roof terrace on the third. 


Created by Chef Michael Morway, the menu serves up a selection of cold snacks, sandwiches, bowls, and trays. Meals and treats include bacon burgers, lobster rolls, and sausage and wurst.

“The centerpiece of our kitchen is a hand built wood-fired grill crafted at Blue Barn in Gardner, Massachusetts,” the menu reads. “A blend of New England hardwood and barrel staves from our cellar program will fuel the fire, creating food with intuitive and nuanced flavors that complement our beer.”

Trillium, run by husband and wife duo JC and Esther Tetreault, previously just had a retail counter in Fort Point on Congress Street, but the new Thomson Place location is a full-on restaurant. They also have a location in Canton, a farm and brewery in North Stonington, Conn., and a seasonal garden on the Greenway.
