    Does anyone know what they will be doing for bottle releases? Will there still be lines outside of their new place or will they let people inside until the release since it's a bigger facility?

    Looks like some of the food items are now a bit cheaper. And they now come with fries instead of chips.

    I went last night to get some cans and the retail space is much roomier for waiting in line...

    Hoping they start canning their lagers ... love the price point on their Pale Ale at under $14 a 4-pack.

    Anyone have an update on what the line is like at Fort Point? I assume it'll get a little bad later in the day when people start going for lunch and draft.

    Update: Fort Point line is like 20 people, all inside, plus they're giving out little samples of nanaimo (the food).

    If you're picking up cans/planning to stay for < 2 hours and don't mind a short walk, park in a metered space on Summer St., take the stairs down to A St., and walk a block north up Thompson Place.

    There's a parking garage on sleeper street if you can't find street parking nearby. Keep in mind since it's Sunday I think you can park in residential areas so check out Melcher street and that area

    AirBob Defender (651) Jul 15, 2014 Massachusetts

    Generally, the resident only restrictions are applicable Monday - Friday so A St. and Melcher might work, but I think the city expanded restrictions and metered parking recently in some of the more popular areas of the city, like around Boylston and Newbury. Unsure whether it's the same in the Seaport. Good suggestion though.

    I went saturday before the red sox game started. Obviously its brand new so the place was mobbed even in the rain. I really hope it calms down could definately be a great place in the city to have a couple pours. Roof deck especially so. Not likely I ever eat there due to the price points but hey you never know. Double dry hopped Melcher St. still impresses, was surprised how many non-ipas they had on draft so thumbs up there.

    If they did line up they were treated to a silent 1pp choice from of a bunch of the stouts they released over the past year. Looks like some people got BA Affogato

    They opened the day with 5 bottles each of BA Affo, Affo, Tiramisu, Adjunction Junction, C&G, Macaroon, and Cuvee. 1 PP total (not 1 of each PP), and all stouts are now gone.

    Are Onebiers wild fermented? I guess Trillium would have mentioned that but the green glass and corks are making me think it's possible. I do love St. Lam and don't love trying to find it.

    initial thoughts of nanaimo. Very sweet with vanilla on the front and graham cracker stickiness on the end. Some will definitely think it is too sweet but I really enjoyed it. Ridiculous mouthfeel as always. To stir up opinions, so far for me its:
    Tiramisu > Affogato > Nanaimo > Vanilla Truffle > Macaroon (didn't try Adjunction, and perm 57 is in a whole different class.

    While everyone else at the grand opening yesterday was lined up for stouts and magnums, I was standing alone at the free Island Creek oyster table with a crispy Helles. Congrats to Trillium on the beautiful new location. I'm looking forward to visiting again soon!

    Edit: I'm looking forward to visiting again soon AND drinking more lagers!

    When you were lining up, I studied the oyster blade. When you were having pre-release hype, I mastered the pint-drain. While you wasted your days in the queue in pursuit of whalez, I cultivated a crisp, clean finish. And now that the world is on fire and the neckbeards are at the gate you have the audacity to come to me for help.

    To be fair the food at CBC has varied wildly over the years. It got so bad in the mid 2Ks that my wife stopped supporting my occasional treks - too many other for options in the area. A4 as an example...burgers at LH etc. But agree - it’s a gem and they’ve been doing it longer than anybody in Boston.

    I think he was just noting that it’s insanely good, which it is. I haven’t had many Trillium stouts to compare, but I had Perm 57 side by side with Vanilla Truffle and VT wasn’t in the same league. Perm 57 is special.

    Oenobier is surprisingly delicate and dry. Super dusty and a decent amount of funk. I seriously could be convinced I'm drinking an old homemade champagne.

    All in all I like it and am shocked that it's Trillium...it's very far from an acid bomb and is really quite nuanced. Nice work!

    Perm 52 as well. For my taste, 52 and 57 are the best clean barrel-aged beers they've released to date.
