Product Review: Jack’s Abby Kiwi Rising

If you aren’t familiar with Jack’s Abby yet, don’t worry — you will be soon enough. A Boston area startup that began brewing in July of this year, Jack’s Abby specializes in nothing but lagers. And if you had any doubt about the potential of the lager category, one sip of their delicious brews might change your mind. One of their better offerings is the Hoponius Union, an India Pale Lager that drinks more like a clean, fresh IPA than anything else. And with hoppy trends the way they were in 2011, the natural progression for this beer was to double it. Enter Kiwi Rising.
