One of the tanks at Jack's Abby Brewing sprang a leak Wednesday, forcing the owners to lose 3,000 gallons—or 1,300 cases—of beer, reported Boston's WHDH TV 7News.

"The gasket failed overnight. Nobody was in the brewery when that happened," Sam Hendler, co-owner of Jack's Abby, in Framingham, Mass., told 7News. "We came in this morning to an almost empty tank."

Jack's Abby had planned to bottle this week, the brewers said. Now, they say, their supply will run out by the beginning of January, 7News reported.

The company, launched by three brothers in 2011, brews over 6,000 barrels of beer a year, the news channel said.
