On Sunday, Sept. 22, from noon to 4 p.m., there will be a party at the brewery's beer garden in Kensington with classic cars and a pin-up contest emceed by Judi Justice of The PA Liberty Belles, and $1 from every pint sold will be donated to Pinups for Pitbulls.

Attendees are encouraged to dress in their best retro or pin-up attire for the fundraiser.

Contestants of the pin-up contest will be judged on style, their answers to questions and crowd enthusiasm. A panel composed of The PA Liberty Belles, Bill and Nancy Barton of Philadelphia Brewing Co. and a few local celebs will select the winner, who will be crowned "Miss Hops."

Classic car owners with pre-1972 vehicles can register for the car show by emailing with the make, model and year of their vehicle. There's a $10 fee to register.

In addition to the pin-up contest and car show, the party will include a raffle with prizes donated by local stores and adoptable pit bulls from ACCT Philly.

To eat, there will be handmade vegan tamales from chef Jen Zavala, cheesesteaks from Joe's Steaks + Soda Shop and ice cream from Big Top's Surfin' Sundaes.

The event is family-friendly and pet owners are invited to bring well-behaved dogs on leashes. The Clean Plate Club food truck and Ham + Bone will be offering treats for dogs.
