After putting the finishing touches onto their Riverside Avenue home, Pollyanna Brewing Company has set their grand opening for Nov. 1, 2019.
The grand opening will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. with the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce.
Pollyanna Co-Founder & CFO Ryan Weidner said Pollyanna’s crew worked hard on completing the vision the company had for the space.
“It was all about the process,” Weidner said. “We are thankful to all the help we’ve had along the way to get us ready to open in downtown St. Charles and have people enjoy our selection. We hope everyone gets a chance to come celebrate with us during the grand opening.”
The renovated space of the former Chord on Blues and River Rockhouse gives a nod to its roots with a stage for live music, a restored 30’ bar that was built in the 1940s when the space was known as the Arcada Recreation Center and a buildout with a modern speakeasy theme. The space also features a full production area for brewing and four garage doors that can be lifted during pleasant weather to let patrons enjoy the outdoors while sitting in comfort in Pollyanna’s space.
Weidner also said the St. Charles Pollyanna location will feature their entire line-up of beer with 24 taps of Pollyanna beer that will include their year round, seasonal, sours and barrel-aged offerings.
Although the Pollyanna location will not have a kitchen, they will be collaborating with restaurants in the area and have a Bring Your Own Food policy. They use a similar policy at their other locations in Lemont and Roselle.
