LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Almost 50 people competed on Saturday, Feb. 9 to prove who is the best homebrewer in town.

The "Big Red Ball" contest is hosted by the Little Rock Kickball Association and benefits Big Brothers, Big Sisters of central Arkansas.

Organizers said the sold-out event reflects our growing beer culture.

"Just in probably the last six or seven years, I think we have gone from two or three breweries here to six or seven, just in the short amount of time," Kyle Baxter said.

The grand prize for the winner is that Stone's Throw Brewing will make a limited-edition version of their beer.
