An owner of Municipal Brew Works has set up a “cup in hand” kickball tournament for Saturday afternoon to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Hamilton’s Downtown Outdoor Refreshment Area, where people are able to stroll around while carrying adult beverages.

People play while carrying a cup filled with a liquid, preferably beer, at all times. If too much of the liquid is spilled, the player can be disqualified.

Jim Goodman is not organizing the event in his capacity with the microbrewery, on which he invited 236 people on Facebook. Goodman was not immediately available to comment.

In his private invitation to potential participants, Goodman wrote: “The response I got from my original post was ‘let’s do this.’ So let’s do this. Let’s celebrate the 1st anniversary of DORA in Hamilton with a ‘Cup in Hand Kickball Tournament.’

The first day for DORA was May 3, 2018.
