Though Trillium’s brewery is located in Canton, MA, the popular New England craft beer covers its bases in Boston, with a three-level brewpub in Fort Point and a seasonal Fenway location featuring experimental brews. If you’re able to make it out to Canton, the main taproom hosts food trucks, pop-ups, trivia nights, fitness classes and special Cellar Sundays, when a limited selection of previously bottled beer is available for purchase.
While you can pull up a barstool just about anywhere and find a wide-variety of local draft beer, it’s always better to go straight to the source.
