I believe a BA Cherry Framminghammer is coming too
I'd love some barrel variations, without flavors, down the road. Like the Brandy BA Framinghammer from a couple years back. Port would be nice...
Maple Rum BA was pretty great at EBF last month. BA Framinghammer season is always worth the wait.
The Double BA Framinghammer utilized brandy as well
Looking forward to this one, but why is this called a Kellerbier? I thought those were paler than a porter. Based on the description, my novice understanding would be this is more similar to a schwarzbier.
Heavy Trommel, can't wait.
I'm not an expert on the matter, but my impression is that "Kellerbier" can refer either to a specific style, OR a general method (unfiltered/natural carb) of lager production. Jack's certainly seems to be using the later definition. Note for instance that Saxony is a Vienna lager, but it also says kellerbier on the can.
Trying the Blood Orange Shandy for the 1st time during Easter brunch . Nice one, easy drinking & subtle fruit flavor.
Picked myself up a four pack of the Springdale good n you. Such a good beer. Crazy how much good beer is available in MA
Agreed. I am a Trillium snob and Good N You is becoming a staple for me now that I can get it at the Craft Beer cellar right next to my work.
Update, way awesome. Nice take on " porter" German style. Have to go to the brewery to pick up though. 5.5%. Reminds me of smoke and dagger without the smoke.
Great food beer. Seemingly could pair with a number of different cuisines and add value the whole time.
Anyone else think that this year's Mass Rising is excellent? I was a little underwhelmed with last year's batch, so I only picked up a single at my local beer store. Will definitely be buying a couple of more four packs.....and of course Jack's Abby pricing is always a great!
+1 on this batch of Mass Rising
How's the graham cracker framinghammer?
I was at Liquor Junction in Winchester yesterday where Jack's Abby was the "beer of the week" and they had a huge stack of on sale 12/15 packs. In the stack were their pilsner, house lager, HU, the variety pack, and the new shandy. Then out back in the "specialty" section they had two different kinds of expensive Springdale IPA, and for a few bucks less you could get Mass Rising.
Is there another brewery who has all the bases covered as thoroughly as JA? You want a cheap 12 pack of good beer with 4 or 5 choices? check. You want a trendy and expensive 4 pack of IPA? check. You want a whacky barrel aged/flavored sour or stout/porter? check. You want a family friendly beer hall with a full kitchen? check. You want more of a funky hipster vibe with "edgier" beer? check (that's the Springdale bar upstairs for those who haven't been).
With all threads on the main board about breweries making bad decisions, expanding too fast, not responding fast enough to trends or chasing trends too vigorously, these guys seem to be making sure they're well positioned whatever happens.
Now watch, they'll be up for auction by the end of summer
I had it last weekend. It's quite good; better than the Mole Framinghammer which I think was a little too strong tasting this time around... I'd probably keep that one in the cellar for a few months whereas GC Framinghammer was drinkable and very enjoyable. It has a little of that s'mores note and the graham flour is a pretty prominent aspect. I would definitely pick it up again.
Did they not brew PB&J Framinghammer this year?
See the link posted above: Yes, but taproom sales only.
Has anyone seen Sibling Maker in stores recently? Cracked one the other night, its unreal good IMO. looking to grab a few more if I can find them....
I agree it was good but it came out in November so it will probably be hard to find now since it was a one off release.
Try calling Wachusett Wine & Spirits in Boylston, Busa Wine & Spirits in Woburn, or Dion's Craft Beer in Waltham. Untappd shows them as having them at least recently.
Sibling Maker is probably hard to find out in the market right now. We do have it available at the brewery though.
Awesome. In take home bottles or for pours?
Take home bottles.
From my thread above, didn't know this forum existed!
Just saw this on the news earlier that they are being recognized by the US SBA for Manufacturer of the Year in Massachusetts. Quite exciting to see this award go to a brewery that isn't apart of the NEIPA bandwagon, enjoys making what they find interesting, and actually distributes their product. I quite enjoy their IPLs as well.
Damn that sounds good.
Yup, looks and sounds delicious!
Going to be in the area Friday. Does anyone know how long the Framinghammer variants usually last? Would the Cocoa-Nut variant being released tomorrow have any chance of lasting?
It'll still be there
how do you know it is being released?
Per their email today, Cocoa-Nut is getting released next week. Super Mole (draft-only) is on the horizon...
Franconian Kraft is delicious. Found it at the store too.
Just noticed why @state08 was confused. If you go to the Beer Hall & Kitchen page on Jack's Abby's website, there's a big link to a Barrel-Aged Framinghammer blog post along with variants and release dates. However, it's for last year's releases...
Franconian Kraft is lovely. Such a lovely rich taste, I'm practically chewing it as I drink it
I was stoked to spot four packs of Maibock Hurts Like Helles at a local packy today, so I grabbed one along with some other items. I paid with plastic and the machine didn't show the total, but I idly checked out the receipt on the walk to the car and ZOUNDS, I was charged $24.99 for that four pack. I went back in and returned it. I told the cashier that in previous years this seasonal was priced in the same ballpark as all Jack's Abby brews but he checked the system and assured me that was the price assigned to that four pack.
I assume some serious miscommunication between the packy workers (or perhaps between the tiers) occurred somewhere along the line, but regardless, you might want to price-check that worthy brew before buying. And now I'm sitting here wishing I had one. Alas.
I paid $10.99 for a 4pk.
I paid $10.99 a few days ago. It’s decent but not great IMO. Preferred the Ayinger & Berkshire versions more.
