Framingham, MA - Jack's Abby Brewing, the family-owned craft brewery with the mission of creating truly distinctive lagers, is pleased to announce this fall's lineup of seasonal and specialty brews. The brewery will also induct Leisure Time Lager as core brand this fall; due to this wheat lager's popularity as the summer seasonal, Leisure Time will now be featured year-round.

"We always look forward to this time of year because of the wide variety of lagers we feature—from extra hoppy to intensely maltty brews," says Jack Hendler, co-founder and Head Brewer.  "Not only are we able to include more locally sourced ingredients from New England in the Fall, but we are able to harvest local hops and pumpkins, involving us in each step of the brewing process."  Each of the seasonal and specialty lagers continue the Jack's Abby traditions of featuring locally-grown ingredients, traditional German brewing standards and American innovation.

The 2014 Fall Specialty and Seasonal Lager Line-up includes:

  • Leisure Time Lager: Now available year-round, this 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.  Year-round release.  ABV 4.8%, IBUs 15.
  • Copper Legend - This Octoberfest-style lager is malty, smooth and exceedingly drinkable -- perfect to celebrate the change in seasons. This beer features locally grown wheat from MA, Munich malt and noble hops.   September release.  ABV 5.7%, IBUs 22.

"The Bone" is Closed until after Labor Day.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - The Chicken Bone Saloon sent out a notice to customers on their email list informing them they would be closing for the entire summer, beginning June 17th, 2014 and not reopening until "the week after Labor Day". 

The notice read ---

 

Dear Friends of The Chicken Bone:

Summertime has always been a very slow time of year for us here at The Chicken Bone. Many people are away on vacation and/or enjoying outdoor activities. This, combined with recent changes in the economy and rising cost of living expenses, means we all have less money to spend on eating out and entertainment.

Up until last year, The Chicken Bone had always been open 7 days a week. Last summer, in an effort to minimize the impact of the slow season, we reduced our operating hours and decided to be closed on Mondays. We have made the difficult decision to suspend our operations for the entire summer this year, and then re-open after Labor Day.

We want to thank all of our staff and all of our customers for your friendship and support over the years. We know that The Chicken Bone would not be the special place that it is without all of you. We hope that you enjoy the summer and come back to see us in the fall for the great food and live music that The Chicken Bone is known for.

Sincerely,
Bill & John
The Chicken Bone will be closed from Tuesday June 17th until the week after Labor Day.
