Brews and beats are headed to Boston Common 🍻

Here’s what’s planned for the Boylston area this summer.

Remember that major transformation planned for the Boston Common? We’ve got an update on how city leaders plan to infuse more fun into the area.

This week, the city approved plans for Emerson College + Trillium Brewing Co. to open a hybrid beer garden and live performance center by Boylston Station.

The brewery area will seat 420 guests and feature food and beverage kiosks. This isn’t Trillium’s only pop-up — the brewery also hosts another seasonal beer garden at The Rose Kennedy Greenway.

Emerson students will be taking to the stage with slam poetry, dance, music, comedy, and other live performances.

To make this vision a reality, the Boston Landmarks Commission still needs to grant final approval. If all goes according to plan, the Boylston beer garden will run from May through November.
