FRAMINGHAM, MA - Today, Jack, Eric and Sam Hendler, co-founders and owners of Jack's Abby Brewing, announced plans to build a significantly larger brewery at 100 Clinton Street, occupying part of the former Dennison Mfg. complex in downtown Framingham.

The expansion will allow the brewery to increase production capacity, warranted by a rise in demand for the beer in its home state, as well as expanded territories such as Connecticut, upstate NY and Vermont only a few short years after the brewery's August 2011 official grand opening.

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.

"We've developed a great relationship with the town of Framingham over the past three years and couldn't be happier that we found a location for the brewery that meets ...[read more]

Drink Local! -- Jacks Abby Brewing, LLC releases "Framingham Lager" in honor of brewery's 3rd Anniversary of operation in town.

Framingham, MA - Jack's Abby Brewing, LLC is celebrating its 3rd anniversary by releasing Framingham Lager, a new beer that will give back to the local community. "Framingham Lager" will be released on Wednesday, June 18th, and a portion of all proceeds will be donated to the Downtown Framingham Renaissance organization for their efforts to revitalize downtown Framingham.

"We've been honored and humbled by the tremendous support the community has shown us over the past three years. 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. "We wanted to brew something that everyone could enjoy. Framingham Lager is a traditional American pale lager, but brewed without any of the adjuncts common to the style."

In the three short years since they opened, Jack's Abby has garnered several awards in the brewing industry, and made a name for itself locally by focusing entirely on craft brew using traditional German techniques to create new lagers.

Framingham Lager is a traditional American style lager brewed with 100% 2-row malt and 100% real hops, no adjuncts. Draft will only be available in Framingham, 12-packs will be distributed throughout Massachusetts.

Visit Jack's Abby Brewing Tasting Room (Wed. - Sat., 12– 8pm), at 81 Morton Street, Framingham, MA 01702.  For more info, visit www.jacksabbybrewing.com, or phone: (508) 872-0900 or send email to: info@jacksabbybrewing.com

Sannicandro, Walsh, and supporters toured the facilities following a door-to-door canvass, spoke with the owners, and tried some of the craft specials available from the growing company.

"I thought this was a good place to take the team because it represents much of what this campaign is about and what this town is about," Sannicandro said. "This is a small business that just emerged last year. They're expanding. They're benefiting from a growing economy. And most importantly, they brew good beer."

Sannicandro tasted the "Hoponious Union" craft and a couple others. Before supporters, he discussed several ways the legislature supported small businesses last ...[read more]
