The Individuals behind The Dapper Dog and Little Baby’s Ice Cream were drinking Yards’ Brawler Pugilist Style Ale one day and a debate broke out…

“Hot Dog Eaters are the best Arm Wrestlers,” said The Dapper Dog.

“No I must disagree, Ice Cream Eaters are the best Arm Wrestlers,” said Little Baby’s Ice Cream.

“A Competition we must have!” said the bottle of Yards Brawler Ale.

So a Fall Brawl we’re having! Put your favorite Champion Hoodie on! Turn your hat backwards!
