Stops: Trillium Brewing | Castle Island Brewing | Dorchester Brewing
On this tour, you will have a chance to visit three of the more popular breweries Massachusetts has to offer.
Our first stop on the Brew Hills tour is Trillium Brewing Co. We will be visiting their Canton location which opened in December 2015. After 2 years of producing beers in the Fort Point neighborhood they opened our secondary facility in Canton, MA, which allows them to significantly increase production volume for wider availability and expanded variety. We will tour their barrel mezzanine which will give us a birds eye view of the brewery while sipping on some delicious beers. We are proud to say that The Mass Brew Bus is the only way to tour their facility (unless of course you know the right person).
Next up is Castle Island. Founded in December of 2015 by Adam Romanow and Matt Deluca, Castle Island is named for the the popular recreation site in South Boston. Both have experience in commercial brewing, Adam apprenticed at White Birch in New Hampshire and Matt worked at Harpoon for more than eight years. When the team was looking at what became their 20,000 square foot home in Norwood, they noticed a sign hanging above the loading docks: “If you’re not proud of it, don’t ship it.” Using this key message as their inspiration, the company is turning out high quality beer into cans and kegs that are then distributed throughout Southern New England.
Last stop is Dorchester Brewing Company. Welcome to Boston’s first contract brewing facility with a public Tap Room serving partner and in-house brews on tap. DBco was created by a team of Boston professionals with an unnatural love of craft beer, to meet production demands for the local craft beer industry all while supporting the economic development of Dorchester. They realized that there was a gap in the local industry for local, small to medium-sized craft beer brands and regional brewers to produce their product without owning their own large-scale brewery. So look around the massive facility,enjoy the high quality beers on the 20 lines in the impressive taproom, and be sure to thank the team for this space which is helping spread local craft beer.
We’ll drop you back off at The Craft Beer Cellar Fort Point where you can pick up more beer or hit up the city for some more sights and beer.
