The good folks at Akasha Brewing Company are hosting their first Pintwood Derby, an event that taps into that Cub Scout Pinewood Derby nostalgia. Like the traditional pinewood derbies, Akasha’s Pintwood Derby challenges participants to get creative and competitive. For $20, any group or organization can purchase a car kit. The premise behind the event is that local businesses will sign up, with the proceeds from the first, second, and third place going towards each entrant’s charity of choice. Post cost, first place wins 50 percent of the pot, second place gets 30 percent, and third gets 20 percent, and not to mention a trophy and all the bragging rights you could possibly want. Grab a pint and root for your favorite team to win this Sunday at Akasha.
