Jack's Abby Brewing was formally founded in January of 2011 by three brothers, Jack, Eric and Sam Hendler, who grew up in a family business. The ideas behind it, however, date back over ten years to when Jack was still in college experimenting with home brews. After graduating, Jack became the head brewer of one of the largest brewpubs in the eastern US. He earned joint diplomas in Brewing Technology from Siebel Institute of Chicago and Doemans Academy of Munich. Currently he is a member of the Master Brewers Association.
