Covina’s Alosta Brewing brought back their Pintwood Derby for its third year running this past Saturday evening. This charity fundraiser saw numerous people enter their crafted (toy) cars to race for trophies. Participants paid the $20 entry fee, and had to create a small car that would run down a track, purely powered by gravity and friction. Alosta Brewing sold a starter kit for $5 for those not familiar with designing the small car. Children competed in their own division, while adults competed in an adults division. Most of the children came from local families, while a handful of the adults competing consisted of reps from nearby breweries. This year’s Pintwood Derby benefited No Kid Hungry and Chefs Cycle foundation. Aside from this outdoor event, Alosta Brewing operated under normal business procedures, with mobile food vendors outside and beers flowing inside.
