Who You’ll See at the Market this Weekend

No Comments 25 January 2013

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Somerville Winter Farmers Market, as I often do on Saturday mornings throughout the winter. The market sets up shop in the unique and funky Arts at the Armory building on Highland Ave. in Somerville, MA. There, an array of local farmers, food artisans, bakeries and winemakers showcase their products, often offering samples and plenty of friendly smiles to go around.

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.
