Local Brew Series, Part 3: Jack’s Abby

No Comments 22 August 2012

We’re back with the Local Brew Series today, reviewing yet another local brewer, Jack’s Abby Brewing from Framingham MA. Founded officially in January 2011, this brewery was founded by three beer-loving brothers – Jack, Eric and Sam. What has become evident over the course of making this Local Brew Series is that many (all?) craft brewers start their “careers” home-brewing, and the real business is born out of that. Jack’s Abby is no different – Jack began experimenting with home brews when he was in college, and even harvested hops grown at their family farm in Vermont. Now approaching the anniversary of their second year of brewing, they continue to use high quality local ingredient and great recipes to make tasty and authentic beer.

For our first feature this week, we’ll begin with Backlash Beer Co. and their Groundswell Belgian Style Blond Ale. We shot this beer in a Kosta Boda Chateau Grande Beer glass – a wonderfully lightweight and effortlessly elegant glass. Groundswell is a Belgian-style ale brewed with four different varieties of malt, which we’re told contributes to the golden color of the beer. It has a slight malty-sweetness, a tinge of citrus, and a wonderfully smooth mouth-feel. Very easy to drink! Continue Reading
