Benefit Event Today For Local Brewery Destroyed By Tornado

There’s a benefit event for Skeleton Key Brewing Company today to help them rebuild from the June tornado that hit Woodridge. It’s at Miskatonic Brewing Company from 3-10!

Full Story:

Back on Father’s Day, our area saw one of the more destructive tornadoes in quite a long time. The town of Woodridge was in the cross hairs as many homes and businesses took direct hits.

One of those businesses was Skeleton Key Brewing Company. The ceiling collapsed, walls were torn down, tree limbs strewn about.  As you can see, the damage was pretty devastating.

Here’s the thing though…the brewing industry is wired different than any other. It’s a community and they have each other’s back, even if they sell the same stuff. They have each other’s back even more if they are neighbors and friends.

Enter in Miskatonic Brewing in Darien. They have organized quite a fundraiser to help their neighbors and friends at Skeleton Key rebuild!

Today from 3:00 – 10:00 there will be:

  • 7 hours of live music on TWO STAGES
  • Guest beers rotating throughout the day
  • Food from Burn’n Bull food truck (BBQ)
  • Raffles and silent auctions
  • Too much damn fun!

Here is the Facebook event page for ALL the information. Pay particular attention to the parking instructions!

Oh…want to help but can’t make it? Metal Monkey Brewing in Romeoville is also hosting a relief fundraiser. That is on Friday! Check it.
