Stars on Tap: Reviews of Jack’s Abby Brewing – ‘ABCS IPL’
May 7th, 2013
This Thursday, May 16th, we are releasing our Smoked Maple Lager, a collaboration with Lawson’s Finest Liquids from Vermont. All the malt was sourced from Valley Malt, who used hand-sourced Maple Wood to smoke some of it. The maple character comes from using one gallon of maple syrup for each barrel of beer. It’s rounded out with the addition of lactose sugar and brown malt.
We are having a release event for this beer at Dive Bar in Worcester, on Thursday, May 16th.
Saturday, May 18th, there will be a tap takeover at The Dirty Truth. All of our current beers and several from Lawson’s Finest will be available on tap.
We also have two planned tap takeovers with Lawson’s in Vermont where our beer will be available for the first time outside of Massachusetts. On June 7th we will be at The Farmhouse Tap & Grill and June 8th we will be at The Three Penny Taproom. As part of these events we will also be bringing some bottles for a one-time release.
Watch this video review by Beer Geek Nation where he tries (and loves!) Hoponius Union for the first time.
Leisure Time Lager, our summer wheat beer, will be available at the brewery starting tomorrow, May 2nd. It will be on draft and available in 4-packs outside the brewery soon.
This beer was named in honor of our grandfather, whose vision built the Leisure Time Ice brand decades ago and inspired us to build Jack’s Abby as a family business. Leisure Time Lager is brewed with wheat and a blend of spices including lemongrass, coriander, orange peel and chamomile. A subtle spiciness balances the citrusy and floral hops added to the whirl and hopback. Relax and enjoy! Leisure Time Lager uses locally grown wheat from MA.
