Trillium Brewing Company has announced that they will feature a winter beer garden at Roslindale Village Main Street. The temporary taproom opens in early December and is set to run “through the winter season.”
The Boston/Canton-based brewery plans to take over the first floor of the historic Roslindale substation.
“We had a killer time with the Garden on the Greenway this summer so we jumped at the chance to bring Trillium to another Boston neighborhood,” Trillium co-owner Esther Tetreault said in a press release. “Our goal has always been to build a strong community and share what we do. The Substation is such a unique and iconic space, in a welcoming neighborhood, making Roslindale a perfect winter home for the Trillium Garden.”
The indoor beer garden will be open five days a week, with a rotating draft list of Trillium beers and guest pours. During its reign, the Trillium winter garden will feature open seating, community space, and a limited number of private event opportunities.
The Roslindale Substation building was designed by architect Robert Peabody of Peabody and Stearns with Stone and Webster Engineering Corporation. It was built in 1911 along with five other “nearly identical converter substations built in and around Boston at that time to convert alternating current (A/C) electricity from the Boston Elevated Railway’s South Boston power plant to direct current (D/C) power for use by the trolley system.”
The iconic space offers “34 foot ceilings, 18-foot copper clad doors, 250-ton capacity gantry crane, and six two-story windows,” said Alia Hamada Forrest, Roslindale Village Main Street’s Executive Director.
Trillium has also confirmed their plans to open a permanent brewpub in Fort Point sometime in 2018.
