A local beer brewing pub is teaming up with the Framingham Public Library Foundation for a "fermentable fundraiser."
Framingham's Jack’s Abby Brewing will host a guided tasting of its beers and a private tour of the facility this Saturday to raise money for the library to help offset costs of building a new McAuliffe Branch Library and to create an endowment fund for other library projects.
The event, which will take place Dec. 1 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 81 Morton St., will feature talks about beer styles and the brewing process by head brewer and co-owner Jack Hendler, and MetroWest Daily News beer columnist Norman Miller, author of the book Beer Lover’s New England.
Appetizers will be served, and there will be a raffle for a Jack’s Abby Brewing gift basket. A portion of the proceeds from brewery products sold the night of the event will also be donated to the foundation.
Tickets are $30 and are available at Framingham’s main library at 49 Lexington St., and at the McAuliffe branch library at 10 Nicholas Rd. Tickets will also be available at Jack’s Abby Brewing the night of the event, cash or check only.
Jack’s Abby Brewing was opened in Framingham in 2011 by brothers Eric, Jack, and Sam Hendler.
