Trillium posts brief statement after man suffers serious burns at Canton brewery

The beer maker described the injured man as “a contractor who is a good friend of ours.”

Trillium Brewing Company posted a brief statement to its social media channels Wednesday after a man suffered serious burns at the company’s Canton brewery Tuesday afternoon.

“Yesterday, a contractor who is a good friend of ours was working on equipment in the brewery & was injured,” the statement reads. “Canton Fire & Rescue crews arrived on scene quickly & took him to the hospital. We appreciate the concern everyone has shown & will pass along well wishes for his recovery.”

According to a Tuesday Associated Press report, the 55-year-old man suffered serious burns and was taken by medical helicopter to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he was in serious but stable condition. There was no fire at the brewery, the AP reported.


Trillium expanded out from its Fort Point location in December 2015, when it opened its Canton brewery, which features a taproom. The company also has a seasonal beer garden on Boston’s Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway.
