Jack’s Abby Hires New Executive Chef

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — The Jack’s Abby Beer Hall is excited to announce that Ian Maschal joined the team as executive chef in June 2019.

Following several years at Chef de Cuisine at Eventide Fenway and other positions at several restaurants around Boston, notably Menton and Bar Mezzana, Ian Maschal brings his expertise of locally-sourced food and kitchen management to the Beer Hall.

With Director of Hospitality Megan Parker-Gray leading the charge, the Beer Hall will be revamping its customer experience, from food program to service training.

The updated menu will focus on fare that complements our beer brewed on-site – utilizing top-quality, locally-sourced ingredients. A selection of Wood-Fired Pizzas will remain the cornerstone of the menu, while a succinct list of rotating, seasonal dishes will round out the offerings.

Stay tuned for a final menu announcement.
