A favorite of Boy Scouts everywhere, the Pinewood Derby is a grand tradition that uses engineering and good ol’ American work ethic to transform a wooden block into a racing marvel. Union Craft Brewing is offering a chance for adults to get in on the action, all while enjoying some of the brewery’s delicious adult beverages. These stars of the timber track will be racing for a case of beer, Union bucks, a T-shirt and a trophy and all the glory it bestows. Contestants: Please be sure to visit to make sure your ride is wood ramp-legal. Spectators are welcome to watch these pinewood performers.

Bar opens at 12:30 p.m., registration open from 12:30-2:30 p.m. Races begin at 2 p.m. Union Craft Brewing, 1700 Union Avenue, D, (410) 467-0290,, $5 for spectators, $10 for racers.
