The sweet, sweet alchemy of turning beer profits into food.

At FINNEGANS, we’re all about making a difference. That’s why it is our mission to create sustainable change for those affected by hunger through profits from FINNEGANS Irish Amber and FINNEGANS Blonde Ale, and other innovative products and events. Through the FINNEGANS Community Fund, we are turning 100% of profits from beer into food for the hungry. Even better news is that 98% of all funds that are donated to the FINNEGANS Community Fund go directly back to alleviating hunger in local community ­– we pay our tax accountant and filing fees and that’s it.

2012 Impact Numbers:

  • Raised over $100,000 from all donations from Irish Amber and Blonde Ale sales.

  • Donations from profits went to purchase more than 140,000 pounds of locally grown produce for local food shelves

  • Through the 6th annual Drink Like You Care campaign, nearly $16,500 was raised between Nov. 1st and Dec. 31st.

  • In addition, 280 pounds of food were collected in the Twin Cities metro area alone

  • From our retail partners in giving, Green Mill donated $1.00 for ever large pizza sold Mon. and Tues. and from quarterly beer dinners a total donation of $32,000.

  • From beer festivals that FINNEGANS provided TeamFINNEGANS volunteers for, such as Twin Cities Beer Fest, FINNEGANS Community Fund received a donation of nearly $20,000
