As reported in today's MetroWest Daily News by their intrepid beer reporter Norman Miller, a very knowledgeable guy I've had the pleasure of draining a pint with, Jack's Abby Brewing is targeting July to begin producing their own beers in a former warehouse on the south side of town.
Technically the Ham has a brewery in John Harvard's Brewhouse at Shopper's World, but that's a brewpub where the house beers are produced and consumed on-premise. Jack's Abby will be a production brewery where the beer will be kegged and bottled in 64 ounce "growler" bottles for off-premise consumption. There will be tours and a tasting room where the beers can be sampled and purchased.
The starting lineup including four very interesting sounding brews - click on their link above to go to their Facebook page for full descriptions and background information on the brewery.

Hopefully a lot of the pub and restaurant owners in town will support Jack's as well, and offer a brew or two of theirs on tap. After all, for Framingham eating and drinking establishments, can there be any better marketing pitch than a Framingham-brewed beer?
