I’ve never been much of a speed demon. But in the distant past I have been known to “burn rubber,” to “smoke out” my tires, and even engage in the occasional “donut.”

This all came to a screeching halt, of course, when I crashed my mom’s Scion XB into a Hummer. The Hummer was fine. Sadly, mom’s car was not.

Yikes.

If you love fast cars, you need to head over to Pathlight Brewing — 11200 W. 75th St., Shawnee, Kansas — this Sunday at 7 p.m. for their Formula 1 Watch Party. Watch drivers race through the beautiful city of Baku in Azerbaijan. There’s nothing quite like enjoying quality beer with like-minded Formula 1 enthusiasts.

Where the Pines Grow is a West Coast style IPA boasting of grapefruit, pine and sweet orange, clocking in at 8% ABV. Dripping in Green is a New England-style IPA (8% ABV) with notes of strawberry-kiwi, pineapple and tangerine.
