Finnegans Summerfest

My friend Chris Dykstra passes on word about the Finnegans Summerfest June 9, raising money to end homelessness in Hennepin County. Finnegans is a socially-responsible beer brewed right here in Minnesota.

Here's some details about the event, from Chris:

Jacquie Berglund is the owner of Finnegans Irish Ale. Jacquie started Finnegans in 2000 with the idea of donating all profits back to the community. The became profitable in 2003 and have raised over $60,000 for a slew of great causes.
This year, Jacquie is ratcheting up her efforts by creating Finnegan's Summerfest (, a music festival to be held on June 9, 2007 at the Cabooze in Minneapolis, MN. It will feature one of the best musical line ups to appear anywhere in Minnesota this year - 21 bands on three stages for 12 hours. All the profits will benefit Heading Home Hennepin (, an initiative to end homelessness in Minneapolis and Hennepin County by the year 2016. Tickets at the door will be $25.00.

Sounds like good fun for a good cause -- check it out.
