Lafayette, IND. (WLFI) - The seventh annual Beers Across the Wabash raised money to put back into the community.

About 25 breweries from around the state came out for the event, all serving samples of their beer on the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge with the beautiful backdrop of the Wabash River.

Many people wore homemade snack necklaces made with pretzels and candy to help pace themselves throughout the event.

Organizers said this event is their biggest fundraiser. Last year they were able to donate $15,000 to Food Finders.

Organizer Ken McCammon asked why not use beer to bring people together for a good cause?

“There is just a demand for craft beer, people are into it and so we are just trying to fill that void and get people out on a beautiful day on a beautiful river and have a great time,” he said.

Brewers at the event today also know the power beer has to bring people together.

Last year, this event raised $42,000. Organizers are expecting this year's event to bring in even more.
