There is a new beer, or shall I say brewery, that's totally been blowing my mind this fall and I feel the need to share. Jack's Abby, the family owned craft brewery started by three brothers in Framingham, has been killing it. I can't walk into a bar without immediately tuning my tunnel vision towards one of their offerings. The inspiration for their lagers stems from quality ingredients, mindful labor, community involvement, and remarkable beer. Something I think we can all stand behind.
What I'm sipping now? Smoke & Dagger.
Brewed all year round, this mix between a schwarzbier and smoked porter uses a small percentage of traditional Beechwood smoked malt, adding complexity and balancing out the liberal use of chocolate malt. Made from locally grown unmalted barley, it's full bodied, sweet chocolatey goodness if the perfect treat this Halloween... and for all other necessary beer-drinking purposes for that matter.
