Masskrugstemmen Competition

Masskrugstemmen translates as “bier-stein holding” and is a traditional Oktoberfest test of strength. Registered contestants will purchase a full liter of bier in a glass mug. Contestants will hold their full mug straight out with their arm fully extended and parallel to the floor. If an arm sags, or elbow bends or the bier sloshes, that person is out. The last arm up wins. Sign up on-site on event day. Masskrugstemmen contests are held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Bier Barrel Rolling Race

Teams of two race using one hand to roll a bier barrel down to the finish line. Sign up to participate on site the day of the event. The bier barrel rolling contests are held on Saturday.

Bier Wench Stein Carrying

Contestant must pick up and carry plastic steins a distance of 25 feet and set them back down without spilling more than three ounces out of any one stein. Whichever contestant can carry the most steins is the winner. This contest is inspired by a tradition in the bier tents of Germany in which the bar waitresses deliver biers in one-liter steins to the table, often carrying up to five steins in each hand. Sign up to participate on site on the day of the event. The stein carrying contests are held on Saturday.
