Warped Wing Brewing Co. is a Dayton craft brewery inspired by Ohio’s rich history of innovation and invention. They are committed to carrying that spirit forward by brewing new proprietary beer styles along with original “warped” interpretations.
The Crooked Handle Brewing Company founders were introduced to brewing craft beer in 2008. Weekends were spent together in a small garage on a horse farm crafting beers using nothing more than a couple of igloo coolers, a small kettle, and a propane turkey fryer.
Paint out will start at 8:00am. Participants should meet in Canal Place (310 Spring St.) in Downtown Piqua and have their canvas(es) stamped. They will then need to be back by 4:30pm for judging. They may submit one piece for judging, if room allows, other paintings will be displayed. Artwork may be photographed & used in promotion by the Piqua Arts Council or their partners.
The competition is free, and there are no age or location boundaries, though we encourage participants to stay in/around the Piqua Area. A total of $2000 in prizes will be awarded after judging takes place.
