Sorry Bud, it looks like pumpkin peach ales are here to stay. Want evidence? Just look to Massachusetts where it seems every brewery that isn’t “proudly macro” is thriving. Jack’s Abby, Tree House, and Wormtown, have already announced plans to expand into large, state-of-the-art facilities by mid-2016, and now Trillium has followed suit, as JC and Esther Tetreault today signed a lease on a new 16,000 square foot space in Canton.

Trillium’s second facility, located near the University Station development, will be outfitted with a 30BBL high output brewing system and six 90-barrel fermenters, which will allow them to brew upwards of 10,000 barrels a year. The couple has reiterated that they will not be moving out of Fort Point, but will use the tiny Boston property “more like a pilot brewery” for smaller projects.

Like their original Fort Point location, Trillium’s new Canton facility will have a retail space to purchase bottles and growlers, but they’re also working with the city to procure a license for on-premise consumption. Currently, the Tetreault’s are looking at a late 2015 opening date for their new brewery.
