US-based Jack’s Abby Brewing plans to construct a new brewery in Framingham, Massachusetts, the US.

This will help the firm to widen its production capacity, which will be sufficient to cater to the demand growth for beers in the region.

The proposed brewery, to be spread over an area of around 67,000ft2, will have an advanced brewing equipment and a canning line and a 60 bbl brew house.

It will initially produce 50,000 bbls annually, and has an option to increase up to 125,000 bbls if required in the future.

Besides, the brewery will feature a tasting room and restaurant, in addition to an expanded QA/QC laboratory for quality control.

Jack’s Abby Brewing owner and head brewer Jack Hendler said: "We’ve developed a great relationship with the town of Framingham over the past three years and couldn’t be happier that we found a location for the brewery that meets our needs and is central to downtown.

"Not only are we able to increase our capacity but we are will also able to offer 12-packs of bottles and cans. These are projects that we have wanted to do, but just don’t have the room for in our current space."

The brewing facility’s construction will commence this spring and is likely to open in late 2015.

The facility is expected to employ around 40 people by the end of 2016.
