I remember being a kid and watching my brother who was in Cub Scouts make a pinewood derby car.

He and the other Cub Scouts all got together at a parent's house and decided on designs for their cars and it was so cool to see what the finished product turned into and the excitement they all had when racing the cars down the track.

An event similar to a pinewood derby is happening this weekend but the best part is it also includes beer.

This annual event, hosted by the Pigeon Hill Brewing Company, is a celebration of creativity, community, and the love of craft beer.

The Pintwood Derby is a competition where participants design and race small wooden cars, similar to the classic Pinewood Derby events.

However, this event puts a twist on the traditional format by incorporating the brewery's signature beers.

Contestants must incorporate a Pigeon Hill beer can or bottle into the design of their car, adding an extra layer of creativity and fun to the competition.

The event promises a lively atmosphere, with attendees cheering on their favorite racers and enjoying the brewery's selection of craft beers.
