The word “Masskrugstemmen” means “The Old Beer Stein Holding Contest” – and this competition is one that only the strong can endure. The challenge is simple to explain. A large beer stein is filled with beer, and challengers must hold it out, parallel to the ground. Whomever is able to hold it up for the longest amount of time wins!

The rules are as follows:

– Contestants must be over 21 years of age.

– The beer stein is to be held with only one arm. The contestants arm must be stretched out in front of their body (not sideways), and must be completely parallel to the floor.

– The contestant’s thumb cannot be on top of the masskrug handle. The opposite arm must be placed straight down.

– The stein must be held by the handle.

– There is no switching of hands once the competition has started.

– If at any point the arm holding the beer stein is not absolutely parallel to the floor, the contestant will receive a warning. After two warnings, the contestant is automatically disqualified.

– Any spilling of “beer” is an automatic disqualification.
