Two of our favorite, local breweries are about to be releasing some new beers this week. Framingham-based Jack’s Abby Brewing will be releasing a new lager wine on Wednesday October 10th at the brewery. This barrel-aged beer is a follow-up to their Baby Maker beer but with a tweaked recipe. Coming in at 13%, Bride Maker was made using special B malt to “give it more color and body as well as notes of caramel, toffee and dark fruits“.
Bottles of it will be only available at the brewery, at least for now and there will be no limit on how many you can buy. This is a great opportunity for many to stock up as this will cellar well. It is also a fitting tribute to the fact that four members of their staff recently got married. No word on pricing as of yet but people can start buying it at noon when the brewery opens.
Secondly, a new beer from the ever-so-busy Night Shift Brewing team out in Everett. They will be releasing a beer later today, starting at 3PM at the brewery, known as Darkling.
This 10.3% A.B.V. imperial stout “coats the palate with rich notes of roasted chocolate and oaked bourbon.” according to a description from the brewers. There will only be 200 bottles of it being released at $20 per bottle and a one bottle per person limit. Expect those to go fast. On the upside, if you’re out there and you miss out, they have plenty of others beers on tap and best of all, Island Creek will be there slinging freshly shucked oysters to the masses.
