You may have noticed that we’ve been traveling quite a bit this summer. Since May, we’ve each had five trips (four together and one each separately). The one thing that was the same for all of them was driving and listening to audiobooks and podcasts.
It was while listening to one of those podcasts that we first heard of the idea of an adult pinewood derby. Immediately, we knew that one of the breweries in Cincinnati had to hold one of these events and the perfect place to have it was the Moerlein Malt House on Moore Street.
So mark your calendars and get ready to cheer as the first ever Over-The-Rhine Wood Derby takes place later this month. We are thrilled to be co-hosting this event with the Christian Moerlein Brewing folks and raising money for the Boy Scouts of America. There is more information below and you can go to the Facebook event page for further details.
Christian Moerlein Brewing Company and Hoperatives are joining forces on Saturday, August 22nd to host the inaugural Over-The-Rhine Wood Derby. Local breweries and OTR businesses will compete against each other with pinewood derby cars in a series of races. Prizes will be given to the 1st place brewery, 1st place OTR business, and Overall Grand Champion. Registration will take place at 5pm with racing beginning at 6pm. $1 per pint sold during the event will be donated to the Boy Scouts of America.
