Ryan Weidner, co-founder, president and CEO of Pollyanna Brewing & Distilling, talks about previous initiatives with nonprofit organizations, and about their upcoming “Beer, Charity, and Music” event series.

“Coming off a successful Charity Bike Ride series over the summer where we, together with Sammy’s Bikes, raised over $10,000 for local organizations, we are very excited to launch our Beer, Charity & Music program this winter,” Weidner said. “Along with our partners, Tunes for a Minute, we continue the programming featuring TriCity Family Services in January and have locked in other great local organizations to feature throughout the coming months. There are so many great organizations in the Fox Valley doing great things for people in need and this is our way, albeit small, to assist in their efforts.”
