Award-winning Framingham craft brewery Jack’s Abby Brewing is teaming up with the Framingham Public Library Foundation for “Booktoberfest” – a celebration of beer, autumn, and the library’s project to build a new McAuliffe Branch Library.
On Saturday, October 19 from 7 to 9 p.m., the brewery, located at 81 Morton Street, will host a guided tasting of its beers and a private tour of the facility. The event is to help the foundation raise money to offset the cost of building a new McAuliffe branch library, and create an endowment fund for other library projects. It will also feature talks about beer styles and the brewing process by Jack’s Abby staff. In keeping with Oktoberfest tradition, grilled bratwurst will be among the appetizers served with the beers, to be followed by a tempting array of desserts.
Tickets are $40 and are available at Framingham’s main library at 49 Lexington Street, and the McAuliffe branch library at 10 Nicholas Road. 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 and has rapidly grown and won acclaim for both its beers and community involvement. The brewery is in the midst of a major expansion, is introducing more new beer styles, and was recently named the best craft brewery in Massachusetts by thrillist.com.
