    The new Trillium restaurant is open now by the way, 11-11 every day. Retail is now sold from the new location. I had the burger and it was amazing. Technically they are in the “soft” opening period until October 29th. All staff was overly courteous and helpful. Off to a great start.

    I'm very excited to see the new space and try some good food. I am sad to see them close up the OG location though.

    Yeah. I’ve been going to that original spot since the week they opened. I walk by it every day and usually went a couple times per week. Will be different for sure. I’m glad they kept the location close. The new place is a lot nicer though haha.

    Are there any good beer stores in Boston that sell singles (aka you can break up 6 packs)?

    Thanks, man. I'll be Cambridge tomorrow and wondering if it was worth the trip across the river.

    I think they are closing it with the new brewery/restaurant opening so close. No point in doing can sales and growlers only anymore.

    CBC Fenway's my go-to for that. You can buy a single of anything in the store.

    The retail space alone at the new place is 3x the public space of old location.

    And then the taproom area + outdoor seating and roofdeck are 3x that. And the restaurant floor is the same size as those also...

    The new space is large is what I'm saying.

    Anyone seen cans of Revolution Brewing's Straight Jacket around? Fort Point Market posted about it the other day but I haven't seen cans around Cambridge/Somerville.

    3F drops are hitting all around. CBC Belmont had Hommage today at $57 apiece, and I've got confirmation from a couple other shops that they expect their 3F within the next few days. Recommend stopping by your local shops!

    Fort Point Market posted their 3F and Tome selection here. It's impressive for Boston. CBC Fenway also swingin'.

    What breweries do you plan on visiting? I'm assuming Trillium is on there

    It is, if I can make it over there — pretty massive hike from where I’m staying. I’d love to do Mystic, but they’re even further. I’ll definitely hit Deep Ellum for obvious reasons, planning on Cambridge Brewing, as I’ve never been, and then I’m very open to suggestion.
