‘Finn’s After Dark’ Fundraiser to Benefit USO

For the second year in a row, Illinois’ oldest brewpub is hosting an outdoor cookout and concert to raise funds for the United Service Organizations (USO). The 2nd annual “Finn’s After Dark” at Mickey Finn’s Brewery in Libertyville will feature music from DJ Sylkk and the legendary local band, Betty Soul. The party will also have a variety of food options and award-winning Mickey Finn’s beer. 

Finn’s After Dark is free to attend, however, donations are appreciated. All food and beverage proceeds will also be donated to the local USO at Naval Station Great Lakes. The event will be held in the back parking lot of Mickey Finn’s Brewery in historic Downtown Libertyville from 5-11 p.m. on Thursday, September 21.

Last year, the Finn’s After Dark event raised over $21,000 for the USO. This year, Mickey Finn’s owner Brian Grano says he hopes to write an even bigger check. 

“There are hundreds of great causes out there, but in the crazy times we’re living in, I believe donating and supporting the USO to benefit our military service men and women and their families is about as noble as it gets,” said Grano. “It is an honor to host an event that supports our heroes.”

The evening is presented by Mickey Finn’s Brewery and Liberty Auto Group of Libertyville.

Mickey Finn’s has been a staple in downtown Libertyville for decades, celebrating over 30 years as a brewery. Over 8 million pints of beer have been served since they opened in 1994!
