Pollyanna Brewing Company

Their beer is and will always be clean and consistent with a strong focus on balance. They feel their four flagship offerings best represent Pollyanna and take pride in their year-round availability. They're constantly experimenting with local fruits and spices, seasonal lagers, barrel-aging, wild yeast, and bacteria.

They have a bunch of tasty brews on tap for you, not to mention plenty of incredible food offerings for lunch and dinner (and a few bites for betweensies on the weekend to boot).

Ravinia Brewing Co.

One perfect night in Ravinia, three men made a pact. Andy, Kris, and Brian would build a brewery in Ravinia! It would become a community gathering place for neighbors, families, and beer lovers of all shapes and sizes... and the beer would be glorious! Now innovative craft beer built from the finest ingredients and born out of the magical world of Ravinia is available to all, and the world is well. Non-pretentious beer for all... it's no longer just a dream!
