El Dorado Cutting Tiles

Cutting Tiles was once known as Artaic. A quick Google search on the term “Artaic” leads mostly to a Boston-based company that specializes in custom mosaic tiles. I’m not sure if there were any legal issues that prompted the name change. My guess is that the beer started as a Mosaic single hop beer and simply that Trillium started creating alternate hop versions like Galaxy and El Dorado. If anyone finds differently, I’d appreciate your insight.

If you go…Trillium Canton

The Trillium facility in Canton is a craft beer lover’s dream. While many breweries have restrictive limitations, you are limited here by your own wallet. There are typically six to ten offerings and many have up to one case limits. The day we were there, there were ten.

If you go…parking

No real issue with parking. The lot has plenty of come and go traffic. If you travel here on the weekend, they may ask that you park in their overflow parking lot at 50 Hudson Street (just up the road 100 yards).

El Dorado Cutting Tiles

Can I just leave this review of El Dorado Cutting Tiles as, “Wow!”. Brewed with wildflower honey. Flavor bursts with juicy sweet pineapple and an undercurrent of tart pear. El Dorado Cutting Tiles may be the best IPA I’ve had to date. Easily 97 points.
