Jack’s Abby Begins Offering Core Releases in 16 oz. Cans

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — Jack’s Abby Craft Lagers will now be packaging all core beers in 16-oz cans. This includes our flagship India Pale Lager, Hoponius Union. Hoponius Union harmoniously combines lager yeast fermentation and West Coast IPA hops. This lager has a tropical fruit and citrusy hop aroma complimented by a dry finish that accentuates the pleasant bitterness and hop profile at 6.5% ABV.

Hoponius Union was one of the first beers brewed at Jack’s Abby Craft Lagers in it’s opening month nearly seven years ago. Due to its popularity it quickly became the flagship beer of the brewery.

“No one really knew what ‘IPL’ was, it took a lot of education and communication in order to wrap peoples’ heads around the concept…there was certainly no indication when we first brewed that it would end up as successful as it is.” -Jack Hendler, owner of Jack’s Abby Craft Lager.

Hoponius Union 16-oz can six-packs will be available in all markets beginning in early March. Twelve-packs of 12-oz Hoponius Union cans will continue to be available in all markets.
