Hype in Houston, Trillium in Texas, and Being Thankful for Flood


Hype in Houston, Trillium in Texas thanks to Flood Distribution

Flood Independent Distribution recently announced that Trillium is coming to Texas alongside Other Half, Equilibrium, and other beers that could previously only be obtained through trading.



Flood is one of the better known and high-performing distributors in the Texas market. Their focus on independence is helping beer nerds eliminate searches for what is beer mail, researching how to trade beer, and looking up how to fly with beer in your checked luggage as they add to their long list of portfolio brands. We have them to thank for Other Half in Texas alongside Equilibrium.

The haze craze of Houston hasn’t shown signs of stopping. As demand for the sub-style of IPA continues, more and more out of market breweries are trying their hand in a lil’ game of Texas hold ’em.

Trillium is making their long-awaited Texas debut this week, with a limited but exciting drop of their much-celebrated hoppy offerings. Flood shared, “We’re thrilled to be working with one of the standard-bearers of the modern New England beer scene, and can’t wait to share these beers with y’all!”


The Dallas Fort Worth area was the first to get Trillium in Texas. We, Houston, are scheduled to begin receiving it later this week, and Austin over the weekend. Accounts couldn’t be released at the time of this article, but if you’re reading this article, you probably already know the short list of the best bottle shops in Houston.



The beers that are arriving first are:

Congress Street

Flagship American IPA highlighting the distinctively aromatic Australian Galaxy hop.

Fort Point Strata

Trillium’s flagship pale ale Fort Point works as a beautiful canvas for shining a spotlight on the array of aromatics that singular hops can express. This latest iteration explores Strata, a newer, exciting Pacific Northwest varietal.

DDH Trailside

The amped-up version of the original IPA with a double dose of Citra & Strata in the dry hop. Pouring a hazy, golden yellow, DDH Trailside is a fine-tuned take on the classic citrus-meets-tropical Trillium profile.


A twice dry-hopped Double IPA with flaked wheat, hopped primarily with Mosaic and supporting roles played by Galaxy, Citra, and Columbus. Look for overripe mango, pineapple and passion fruit aromas, with flavors of white wine, pine resin and grapefruit zest.
