Pechanga Microbrew Fest and Chili Cook-off is Saturday

The weather is expected to hit the 90s this Saturday (July 13) in Temecula, but it should be nice and cool inside Pechanga Resort and Casino’s Grand Ballroom, where the casino’s fifth annual Microbrew Festival and Chili Cook-off will be taking place.

Your $45 ticket includes not only chili tastings from the resort’s restaurants, but a two-ounce taster glass to enjoy unlimited samples of craft brews from the Inland Empire and beyond.

It’s not just about beer and chili, though.

There will also be a silent auction, with proceeds benefiting Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley, and entertainment by the country/rock band American Made.

The event will take place from 1 to 5 p.m.

Here’s a look at participating breweries:
