Less than two weeks after canning its first beer, Jack’s Abby Craft Lagers is at it again.
According to a post on the Framingham, Mass.-based brewery’s Twitter page, the next beer to get the canning treatment is Leisure Time, a 4.8 percent ABV lager brewed with locally grown wheat, lemongrass, coriander, orange peel and chamomile. The lager was first released in 2012 and has been available in 12-ounce bottles since then.

Calyptra (4.9 percent ABV) was the first beer that Jack’s Abby canned in late January, followed by Hoponius Union imperial pale lager (4.2 percent ABV.) A post on the brewery’s website indicates that House Lager (5.2 percent ABV) will also get the new packaging treatment in the near future, although they will be packaged in six-packs of 16-ounce cans.
Like Calyptra and Hoponius Union, Leisure Time is packaged in 12-packs of 12-ounce cans, and will be shipping to retailers in Jack’s Abby’s distribution footprint.
