A new open-air beer garden is coming to Boston this summer, and you can find it at the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The Greenway Conservancy has joined forces with Trillium, a local brewery, and their efforts will surely bring the stretch of land to life.
The Trillium beer garden on the Greenway has been highly anticipated, and now it seems it’s finally coming to fruition. The selection of beers available on tap at the open-air location will rotate, and there’s even talk of an exclusive beer that will only be available at the Greenway. While permit approvals are still pending, there is hope that the beer garden will be open 3 to 5 days a week.
The Greenway Conservancy is set to lose 40 percent of its funding from the state of Massachusetts when their contract runs out on June 30. Officials from Greenway say that they are hopeful that the beer garden’s profits will offset the $2 million shortage and help keep the organization on its feet. The beer garden’s big debut is eagerly awaited for a variety of reasons, it seems.
Greenway Conservancy Executive Director Jesse Brackenbury wrote in a statement, “The Greenway Conservancy brought food trucks and contemporary public art to Boston, and we expect the Beer Garden to be another innovative offering on The Greenway. We’re so excited to present Trillium’s world-class beers in our beautiful park setting.”
Over the last four years, Trillium has grown into one of the most-sought after brands of beer in the area, and they’ve garnered worldwide acclaim for their tasty brews. The Conservancy solicited bids for the open-air beer garden project from a number of food truck operators, brewers and restaurant groups before settling on Trillium. But beer isn’t the only thing they’ll be serving.
It’s been reported that in addition to Trillium’s craft beer, wine from the Massachusetts-based Westport Rivers Winery will also be served at the park. According to a news release from the Greenway, the founders of Trillium brewery actually got engaged at Westport Rivers Winery, so the pairing couldn’t be more fitting.
