Stein Hoisting

How long can you hoist? The game is simple, how long can you hold a two, 1 Liter steins filled to the brim with liquid? The steins must be held by a straight ninety degree arm in front of entrant, parallel to the floor with elbows locked. Once entrant’s elbow bends or spills/drops the stein, entrant loses the contest.

Speed and accuracy are key... Teams of four will compete in a bier stein water relay where each player will fill the next player's stein until they overflow the bucket at the end.

Beer Belly Contest
