The first pinewood derby was held at a Manhattan Beach Cub Scout lodge in 1953, beginning a beloved American tradition of racing small, homemade wooden cars, originally made out of pine. This summer, Golden Road Brewing has come up with an adult twist on this event: the inaugural Golden Road Beer Can Pinewood Derby. For $25, entrants will receive a kit, a shirt and a six-pack of beer ($15 without the kit) from which to fashion their vehicle. Each car must feature elements of a beer can, so you may need to put back a few before you get it right. Prizes will be awarded for speed and style, so build the fastest or most original rig and you might just win a one-year beer club membership, a tasting and tour or a swag bag. It's not just about having a fun day at the races, however; it's also about giving back to the community, as 100 percent of the proceeds will go to My Friend's Place, a charity that supports homeless youth.
