The only thing more German than drinking German beer is joining a stein hoisting competition, or maßkrugstemmen.
The true test of endurance and strength happens as you stare into a stein of icy cold beer without being able to take a drink. But hang on! Keep those elbows locked and your head in the game as a championship and some pretty cool prizes are on the line.
Can anyone enter?
You betcha! As long as you are 21 years old, with proper I.D. How long can I expect to stand there without taking a drink?
Women typically hold the 5 lb. stein for 2 minutes, and it's a whopping 3-5 minutes for men.
How much does it cost to enter?
$15 and that includes the beer you don't spill and a commemorative DAS Fest mug. A $22 value.
Does this guarantee I'll get one of the official DAS Fest USA 1L mugs?
It does! With a limited quantity of DAS Fest steins available, registering now is the only way to guarantee you'll be one of the lucky hoisters drinking from one.
Can I win something?
Besides bragging rights, and the Grand Hoister title, there will be prize packages including DAS Fest bier tokens. And remember, everyone wins that $7 savings on beer!
3 competitions will be held during DAS Fest:
Friday, August 13th @ 4:30 PM
Saturday, August 14th @ 2:45 PM
Sunday, August 15th @ 2:45 PM
There will be a men's division and a women's division which will begin at the same time. Space is limited. Advance registation is the only way to guarantee a spot and a commemorative stein. Registration on the day of the competition might be possible but cannot be guaranteed. We will be using the Official Steinholding rules as our guideline, but hey, it's our first year, so go easy on the judges.
