Welcome to Mickey Finn’s Brewery

Ah, Mickey Finn’s during the holidays, my favorite time of the year!  Santa’s Magic is on tap and the whole brewery is decorated for the holidays. We welcome you to our brewery and restaurant … the oldest brewpub in Illinois! Family owned and operated since 1994. Currently housed in a 102-year-old (renovated) cozy urban/industrial style building in the heart of historic downtown Libertyville literally across the street from our original location.

What an exciting time to be in the craft beer industry.  New breweries popping up all over (and that’s awesome).  New beer styles and seemingly no rules anymore.  Truly something for everybody to drink these days.  We’re proud that we’ve served well over 5,000,000 pints of beer in our brewpub since 1994 and we plan on selling a lot more in the next 25 years.   Although the styles have changed a bit over the years our commitment to innovation, quality, taste and atmosphere has not.   Head brewer, Jason Martens has been brewing up some great new and exciting styles – including his new DDH hazy IPA “Can I Kick it” – to be followed up with the upcoming “Jazz Hands” and “the Shades Play”.  We also have on tap Mickey Finn’s Raz (Rasperry Purée) wheat, brewed in house for the first time in over 20 years!  And it’s delicious.  On tap now.  In other brewery news we canned over 100 cases of Santa’s Magic in late November and fortunately or unfortunately depending how you look at it we sold them all in 2 days.  So only growlers to go in Santa’s cans until it the end of the year.  So join us this holiday season,tit as well as our iconic holiday beer Santa’s Magic goes fast as well.

We are open 7 days a week for lunch, dinner, private events and weddings, brunch on the weekends, live music on Friday and Saturday and a great time… all the time!

Happy holiday – from Brian Grano – Proprietor –  and all of us at Mickey Finn’s Brewery.
