Bier Wench Stein Carrying

Bier Wench Stein Carrying


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 tables, often carrying up to five steins in each hand! In our version, contestants must pick up and carry their 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 successfully is crowned the winner.

Stein Hoisting Competition

Stein Hoisting Competition


Masskrugstemmen translates as "bier-stein holding” and is a traditional Oktoberfest test of endurance. Registered contestants will purchase a full liter of bier in a glass mug. Contestants will hold their full mug (approx. 5 lbs) 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 done, out, kaput. The last arm up wins!
