INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — This year’s Red, White and Brew Fest is just one week away and you’re invited to taste-test some adult beverages, check out food trucks, listen to music and hang out with friends.

Plus, the event benefits veterans.

Matt Hall and Jason Wuerfel stopped by the WISH-TV studios to talk about the event that will be held at the American Legion Mall on Saturday.

“We want a lot of people there, we need as many people as we can get out to this thing to just pack it up and just show how we can help our veterans,” explained Matt Hall, founder of Red, White and Brew Fest.

The event kicks off at 2 p.m. Saturday. Tickets range in price from $5 to $50.

Colder and quiet rest of the week

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A good 20° swing Wednesday morning with temperatures in the lower to mid-20s this morning with feel-like temperatures in the teens. It will be a clear start then brighter heading through the rest of the morning and the afternoon! Sunshine won’t help us out too much in terms of temperatures today. Daytime highs should warm to the upper 30s. Wednesday night will be a cold one with lows in the lower 20s with a partly cloudy sky.

Thursday will be another cold one with highs struggling to reach 30°. It’ll still be a bright one with a mostly to partly sunny sky. A slow warming trend will start Friday with highs warming to the upper 30s with a mixture of sun and clouds.

This weekend will be split with a chance of showers arriving late in the day Sunday. Highs will continue to warm to the mid-40s Saturday with a partly sunny sky. Clouds return Sunday with showers later in the evening and overnight. Rain will continue through Monday. Tuesday looks to be a dry day for now then showers should return by midweek with highs in the mid 40s.
