Kicking off Trillium on the Sill Week today!

We’re going to be talking about Trillium Brewing Company a lot this week, and there’s much to cover. For today’s post, let’s talk about Trillium’s Fort Point location, since that’s where I bought all this fine beer you guys will be seeing on the window sill. It’s located at 369 Congress Street in the Back Bay area of Boston. I was able to walk to it from my hotel, with a cooler backpack in tow, of course. The surprisingly small storefront is a little tricky to get to, because it’s kind of down an alley. It’s easy to miss, but the treasures within make it worth seeking out.

The Pier American Wheat Ale is one of those treasures. I bought a 4-pack that was canned just 10 days before my first sip. Talk about pretty fresh! The beer itself is brewed with 30% wheat, and is dry-hopped with Citra and Galaxy hops. It’s peachy, orangey and herbal to the nose, while tropical, citrusy and creamy wheat goodness get your taste buds going right away. The finish is slightly dry and bitter. This beer behaves more like an IPA, which is what one of the storefront dudes said as well. Don’t be fooled! Delicious!
