Janna Braves the Cold for Craft Beer at the Winter Beer Festival [Video]

This past weekend I withstood frigid temperatures, numb fingers, and port-o-potties with ice clinging to the seats, all in the name of craft beer.

GRD Cardboard Bobsled Derby 2015 Photo Gallery

On Saturday, WGRD joined Labatt at Cannonsburg for the 5th Annual Cardboard Bobsled Derby! It was freaking cold as hell out there, but that didn't stop anyone from having a blast racing down the mountain, and even falling apart halfway!

Here are some photos of the sleds before they exploded on the slopes, and some from the awards party afterward!

If you missed it this past weekend, check out the photos, watch the fun video here, and then join us next year for all the fun! Maybe you'll even build your own bobsled and join us going down the hill!
