LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Raising a glass to raise some money! Tickets are on sale for the 7th annual Beers Across the Wabash this weekend.
Each year the Friends of Downtown hosts Greater Lafayette's craft brew festival on the John T. Myers pedestrian bridge. The event raises money for Food Finders to fend off food insecurity. Last year, a check for $10,000 was sent to Food Finders from the event.
Beers Across the Wabash draws almost 1,000 craft beer drinkers each year.
Lafayette Brewing Company owner Greg Emig has been around since the first fest. He says this is the perfect event to sample and figure out what kind of beer you like.
"As Chris Johnson from People's always says, 'Everybody likes beer they're just not sure which one they like.' Inevitably, I think people will enjoy having a little sample," said Emig. "If you like it, you have a little more. If you don't, you move on and try to find something else."
Twenty-five breweries from all corners of the Hoosier state will pour their brews, including all the breweries of Greater Lafayette. You will get a 4 oz cup and as many samples as you can drink in 4 hours.
Beers Across the Wabash is Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m. on the pedestrian bridge. General tickets are $40 and can be purchased online or at any of the Greater Lafayette breweries.
It goes on, rain or shine! Cheers!
