Brewery Tour, Pollyanna Brewing Company
One of the Christmas gifts I got from
Liz last year was a brewery tour at Pollyanna Brewing Company. We’ve had several of their beers, and have found them all pretty great – and so this was a nice chance to go and check out their brewery, and to try a few more beers.
On arriving, we checked in with the bartender. As part of the tour, we each got two 13oz. pours of anything on tap!
It was a very small/intimate tour, and I didn’t go crazy with photos. Here’s a quick shot of the fermentation tanks.
While the tour touched on the beer making process, a lot of the info revolved around Pollyanna’s decision to go with this particular space (in Lemont) – the benefits as well as the challenges with operating within a space originally designed for a restaurant.
I spotted a calendar from Good Beer Hunting, and was reminded of my encounter with Michael Kiser, many years ago. This makes two instances I’ve run across Good Beer Hunting so far in January, as I happened across a MeFi post a few weeks back. Small (beer) world.
My wife gives the best Christmas gifts!
