Huber said this is the first time they will host Red White and Brew. The event has been held by the South Cape Community Redevelopment Agency in past years.
All of the proceeds from Red White & Brew will go towards the Kiwanis Club's backpack program, which is now feeding 1,000 school children a week.
The event is for those who are 21 years old and older.
