The new 67,000 sq. foot space (up from the current brewery's 12,000) will feature state-of-the-art brewing equipment including a canning line and a 60 bbl brew house for initial brewing capacity of 50,000 bbls annually, with opportunity to scale up to 125,000 bbls.

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.

We feel that the best way to give back to the community is to invest in it," said Jack Hendler, who founded the brewery with his younger brothers Eric and Sam.
