“Finn’s After Dark” to Benefit USO

Mickey Finn’s Brewery, Illinois’ oldest brewpub, is hosting an event later this month to benefit the USO.  The inaugural “Finn’s After Dark” will feature live music from Darryl Marquette and the band 40Hz, plus Mickey Finn’s food and award-winning beer.  Local Vietnam Veteran and Medal of Honor recipient Al Lynch will also be honored at the event.

Finn’s After Dark offers free admission for enlisted service members and first responders, there is a $20 entry fee for everyone else. All proceeds will be donated to the local USO organization at Naval Station Great Lakes.  The event will be held in the back parking lot of Mickey Finn’s Brewery in historic Downtown Libertyville on Thursday, September 22, 2022, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. 

“Most people don’t realize that the USO is not funded at all by the government,” said Mickey Finn’s proprietor, Brian Grano. “The USO relies solely on the generosity of individuals, organizations, and corporations to support its important mission.  We’re proud to show some love to this great organization that provides so much good for those who dedicate their lives to serving our country.”

The evening is presented by Mickey Finn’s Brewery and Liberty Auto Group of Libertyville. Finn’s After Dark is also made possible through the help of Consumer’s Credit Union, Prism War Games Consulting, and Libertyville Bank and Trust. Additional sponsorship opportunities are still available. 

Mickey Finn’s has been a staple in downtown Libertyville for decades, celebrating over 28 years as a brewery. Finn’s produces roughly 1,000 barrels of beer annually. Over 7 million pints of beer served since they opened in 1994.
