Crafted Optimism

Charity Organizations

We owe a lot of what we do to our loyal drinkers, so we try to pay it forward as often as we can by donating to reputable charitable organizations. We enjoy keeping the glass half full with friends and groups in need. If interested in donations, please email info@pollyannabrewing.com and take note of the fact that we get dozens of requests every week, but can only contribute to so many people.
