The only thing more German than drinking German bier 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?
Absolutely! 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. glass stein for 2 minutes, and it's 3-5 minutes for men.
How much does it cost to enter?
$10 in Advance, $12 Day Of (as space allows)
Can I win something? Besides bragging rights and the Grand Hoister title?
Every participant receives a commemorative DAS Fest USA 2021 inaugural year plastic 1 liter stein, with bier. Winners receive a prize package, and bonus bier!
3 competitions will be held during DAS Fest USA:
Friday, August 5th @ 6:30 PM
