You Thought Your Homebrewing Hobby was Out of Control...

This Thursday, after you're full of turkey and stuffed with stuffing, gather the family around the old boob tube and tune into the Discovery Channel at 8pm.  Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, from Mythbusters, will be hosting a one-hour special that tells the narrative of the 25th World Championship Punkin' Chunkin'.  American Chunker, our chunkin' team will be on the show, but you'll have to tune in to see the results if you've haven't read them somewhere else already.

The remnants of one of the biggest storms of the year, Nicole, were bearing down on the Mid-Atlantic region over Hallowe'en.  Rainfall records were set and inches of mud were created.  Even though the rain had largely stopped pouring, the winds were still blowing.  The weather was no match for   Bridgewater, Delaware was hosting the 25th Annual Punkin' Chunkin'.  Dan Henry, our Eastern New England Field Manager was in Bridgewater, Delaware to document the event as our chunking friends, American Chunker, shot for glory.  Here are some of his photos.

 If you're curious why Victory is in the Smuttynose blog, it's because they also 
sponsor a chunkin' team.  That other team's beer isn't as good.

The wind was so strong it was more powerful than our beer
bottle weights.  Thank goodness Dan Henry was there to save the day!

This meeting of the minds is so intense they needed hard hats!

Nothing like hanging out with
Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale between shots!

That cab is where the action takes place.  Note
the strategically placed logo.

With all that mud, does your hair matter that much?

Dude!  Where are your feet?

Dan and Maggie aren't even fazed by the mud.  

Aw shucks...American Chunker sure is cool....

The point...the whole damn point.
