General Information

The goal is simple: Lift and hold a 1 liter stein, filled with beer, straight out with your arm level to the ground. And hold it there as long as you can!

Masskrugstemmen, which loosely translates to the “lifting of a liter mug of beer”, is a well-known and a competitive Bavarian sport. The “Masskrug,” a 1 Liter Stein, is held with one arm, completely stretched out and parallel to the floor. Sound easy? The current U.S. record is 14 minutes, 2 seconds! Registration starts at 6:30p.m. and the contest starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
