6 months later, Pollyanna's second location continues to grow and thrive. After a brief report recorded during a very noisy soft opening night, Taproom Manager Jay Rosicky invited the B&Y Landlord, Phil Clark, to come back, and chat about how things are progressing and what to expect from this Roselle IL location. VP of Operations, Ed Malnar, joined us and not only did we sample some of the Pollyanna brews, but Phil brought along a couple that we top and tail the podcast with some reviews.
First up is a mystery beer, well at least to our guests. Buffalo Creek Brewing in Long Grove is starting to can some of their brews, and head brewer and owner, Mike Marr, provided a sneak peek can to the podcast so we can sample and review the brew. They will have 3 varieties in cans eventually, but this one is their Beau Fleu, DIPA.
Then the Pollyanna Spring/Summer lineup is produced and we sample 3 great beers, one which is only available at the Roselle location. And while we sample, we chat on stories about the brewery, their future plans, and the atmosphere you can expect if you visit.
We also added another 'wild and sour' brew at the end from Imperial Oak's Savage Oak series, just to see if the Pollyanna crew might start to get worried!
