Framingham, MA, July 13, 2012: Jack’s Abby Brewing, the only all-lager brewery in Massachusetts, is celebrating its first anniversary with two events featuring over ten beers and a cask offering. The first event will be on Thursday, July 19th, at 7pm, at the British Beer Company in Framingham. The second event will be on Saturday, July 21st, at 7pm at Meadhall in Cambridge.
Jack’s Abby specializes in brewing traditional German style lagers with a distinctly American craft twist to them. This creative flair will be on display at these events with year-round brews such as Hoponius Union and specialties like Bourbon Barrel Aged Smoke & Dagger with Peanut Butter. The events will also serve as the release for two new beers: Ginger & Juice, a Ginger India Pale Lager with grapefruit, and Brett Biere de Garde, a biere de garde aged in white wine barrels with Brettanomyces wild yeast.
“Specialty brews have become a big part of what we do,” says brewmaster and co-owner Jack Hendler. “We get the opportunity to experiment with different ingredients and really push the boundaries of what lagers, and even craft beer in general, can be.” Brother and co-owner Eric Hendler added, “It is hard to believe that it has been a year already. I am looking forward to sitting down with everyone and enjoying the beers that we have worked so hard to make.”

About Jack’s Abby Brewing
Founded in January 2011 by three brothers who grew up in a family business, Jack’s Abby Brewing is a craft brewery specializing truly distinctive lagers featuring locally grown hops, traditional German brewing standards, and American innovation.
The name, Jack’s Abby Brewing, pays homage to co-founder Jack-Hendler’s wife, Abby, while evoking the tradition of monastic groups in Europe who create handcrafted beers in their abbeys. The brothers are inspired by the tradition of craft brewing using quality local ingredients, mindful labor and great recipes to create delicious, authentic beer.

There is only one week left until you can try some Jack’s Abby Brewing beer. Our first two batches will be kegged and ready to pour on Thursday, July, 21st. They are Saxon Sons Pilsner and Red Tape Lager. We have a few things planned to celebrate this occasion that will give everyone a chance to join us in being the first people to drink some Jack’s Abby.
First we are extending our hours at the brewery for Thursday-Saturday to noon-8pm. If you choose to stop by there will be a lot going on. First off, there will be tours of the brewery where you will get a chance to talk with all of us and see how everything is done. There will also be tastings, so everyone can get a taste of the beer. Finally, we will be filling growlers so you can take some home.
When we close at 8pm the fun does not stop, we have much more planned. On Thursday we will be heading straight to the British Beer Company in Framingham. The BBC will feature our Saxon Sons Pilsner as the beer of the week, providing a great deal on a pint. We will be there the rest of the night to give away some merchandise and have a drink with you.
On Friday night we will be heading to the Framingham Tavern. It is an amazing location in the middle of downtown Framingham. Again, we will be bringing merchandise with us to give away throughout the night. Both of our first beers will be on tap, so come hang out with us.
We will also be out on Saturday night at a currently undisclosed location. We will announce it on our facebook page and twitter feed and soon as the details are finalized. I hope that we see all of you at least one of these nights.
