What can you expect?Pollyanna founders describe the beers.
Imperial Black Saison
"Farmhouse Ale with an Urban Approach"
Pollyanna combined powers with Ten Ninety for this one, brewed with an assortment of highly kilned and black roasted malts to accent a subtle hop spiciness, and the unique fruitiness of Chicago's own Omega Yeast Labs proprietary Saison yeast strain.
"Balanced IPA with a Sturdy Malt Backbone"
"With ardent desire comes painstaking patience." The first beer Pollyanna will release represents the extreme eagerness, enthusiasm, and balance that must be maintained while sorting through construction timelines, attorney fees, and hop contracts. This balanced IPA bursts forward with a blend of juicy citruses, tropical fruits, and pine resins from five different hops, including Galaxy and Simeone.
