While most of the Chicago craft beer scene are downtown at FOBAB 2017, we headed over to Roselle and checked out the new Pollyanna Brewing location, Pollyanna’s Roselare. Nestled along the train tracks, they’ve taken an old building and turned it in to their location for wild and sour ales. But that’s not all that you’ll find there – they have 24 taps of wild and sours and all the Pollyanna favorites.
The Brit headed out there on their ‘soft’ opening day, which by the end of the evening was really humming with a full house of punters. We pulled head brewer Brian Pawola aside and spoke with him about some of his new brews, and the new brewing styles they will be exploring. I also went into the brewing area and chatted with owner and brewery operations head, Ed Malnar.
Listen in and then head out there and experience it for yourself. Cheers!
