Summer may technically be over, but tell that to Trillium Brewing. The powerhouse brewing company announced that downtown favorite Trillium Garden on the Greenway will return to the Rose Kennedy Greenway at noon on Friday, Sept. 25, bringing back a summer tradition just in time for the start of fall.

“Since we first opened the Trillium Garden, my summer in Boston isn’t complete without beers under the sun in our special home on the Greenway,” Esther Tetreault, co-founder of Trillium Brewing, shared in a press release. “While opening later than we would have liked, watching the seasons change in the heart of our city will be a great way to extend the summer outdoors and transition into a classic New England autumn.”

Trillium Garden will be open Thursdays through Saturdays from noon to 8 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. at the intersection of High Street and Atlantic Avenue. Operating during a pandemic will come with a few new changes: reservations are encouraged, contactless ordering is enforced, and there are strict social distancing and cleanliness protocols.

In order to fulfill the state’s guidelines that require food to be ordered with the first drink, guests must order food from one of the Greenway’s on-site trucks, which might include Bon Me, Pennypacker, or Zaaki. As for the beers, this year’s starting lineup features the Arnold Arboretum IPA, Black is Beautiful, Fated Farmer Fruit Salad, Heavy Mettle, Mosaic Cutting Tiles, and more.

For the first time since it debuted in the summer of 2017, the garden will also include an on-site brewhouse, where Trillium will be able to brew small batch special releases on the Greenway. On-site brewing will begin in the coming days.

“Brewing and creative inspiration is at the heart of everything we do,” Tetreault said. “Collaborating with our friends at the Greenway Conservancy, in concert with state and local agencies, has allowed us to bring the beer garden concept to the next level, providing our guests a special, sustainable experience.”

Reservations can be made up to seven days in advance on Resy (there will still be space set aside for walk-ins). Each table can be reserved for up to 90 minutes, and can hold a maximum of six people.

In addition to the Trillium beer garden, visitors can stop by City Winery on the Greenway, a wine garden that first debuted in 2019, or stroll through Chin Park at night to take in the Greenway Conservancy’s newest art installation: “Lantern Stories” by Boston-based artist Yu-Wen Wu.

Trillium beer garden reopens on The Greenway, with a few new guidelines

It may be fall, but the chance to have a beer outdoors on the Greenway isn’t over yet.

The Trillium Brewing Company beer garden has set up shop on the Rose Kennedy Greenway for the fourth year in a row, starting Friday at noon. Under pandemic-era guidelines, Trillium Garden on The Greenway will require advance online reservations, contactless ordering, and strict social distancing protocols. Customers must also purchase food from nearby trucks — like Zaaki, Pennypacker, and Bon Me — alongside their drink order in accordance with state guidelines.

“Since we first opened the Trillium Garden, my summer in Boston isn’t complete without beers under the sun in our special home on The Greenway,” Trillium Brewing co-founder Esther Tetreault said in a statement. “While opening later than we would have liked, watching the seasons change in the heart of our city will be a great way to extend the summer outdoors and transition into a classic New England autumn.”

The garden now brews a small batch of beers onsite at the intersection of High Street and Atlantic Avenue. This will include special season releases for the Greenway location.

“Brewing and creative inspiration is at the heart of everything we do,” Tetreault said. “Collaborating with our friends at the Greenway Conservancy, in concert with state and local agencies, has allowed us to bring the beer garden concept to the next level, providing our guests a special, sustainable experience.”

Trillium Garden will be open from noon to 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays, weather permitting. Reservations for parties up to six people can be made up to seven days in advance through www.resy.com.

City Winery on the Greenway, at Dewey Square, closes for the season on Sunday.
