The next time you visit any of the 180+ Jewel-Osco locations in Illinois (or any Pollyanna location), you will be able to get 1899 Blonde Ale.  The beer contains a crisp, lightly malt base and melon & tropical fruit hopping.  It’s a playful beer that is definitely an easy drinker.

According to their Facebook post, Pollyanna has “a plethora of memories” with Jewel-Osco.  Head Brewer Brian’s first job was at the grocery store.  As a kid, Sales Manager Kara would refer to the store as “My friend, Jewel.”

Now, no matter where you are in Illinois, you’re going to be pretty close to a taste of Pollyanna Brewing … just look to your local Jewel-Osco.
