Founded in 2011 by the three Hendler brothers, Jack, Eric, and Sam, Jack’s Abby Brewing of Framingham, specializes in lagers.
Fewer breweries produce lagers because the fermentation process takes about three times as long as ales. More than 200 years ago in Bavaria, lagers were first created by storing large casks in cool caves high in the Alps. Low temperatures slowed the fermentation—while ales normally ferment for a week, brewers were seeking fermentation times upwards of 4-6 weeks, which became known as ‘lagering.’
Lagers have a crisp, clean flavor that can only come from the lagering process. The bottom fermenting yeast of lagers creates a robust beer with a flavor profile that can easily go toe-to-toe with any ale.
Come try a sample of Jack’s Abby lagers at Roche Bros. in May!
