    About this Event
    Masskrugstemmen, the traditional Bavarian Bier Stein holding contest, is a national competition that allows talented contestants to compete against each other to show off their stein holding skills.
    RULES & ENTRY INFO: Click here.
    $20 Adult Entry Fee (21+) includes 1 Liter Beer Stein with Beer
    $5 12 and Under Entry Fee includes 1/2 liter stein with rootbeer.
    (Note: If you prefer to register on-site, there will be registration forms at the ticket sales table in the Bier Garten. You can pick one up at any time during the event, fill it out, and submit it with your $20 (or $5) to the Bier Garten ticket concessionaire. They’ll hold onto the forms. Just make sure you’re in the Bier Garten when the competition begins.)
    To participate in the Masskrugstemmen you must be able to hold “The Masskrug,” a filled 1 liter stein (adults) or 1/2 liter stein (minors) to be held with one arm (left or right), stretched out in front of the body (not sideways!), and completely parallel to the floor. The arm cannot bend. The Masskrug must be held by the handle. The thumb cannot be on top of the Masskrug handle. Opposite arm must be straight down, not supporting the body in any way. Any spills result in immediate disqualification. If the arm holding the Masskrug is not absolutely parallel to the floor, the contestant gets a warning – after three warnings the contestant is disqualified.

    • Masskrugstemmen is NOT a drinking game. The competition is about holding a filled 1 liter mug on an outstretched arm in compliance with the rules set by Krause's and Texas Stein Holding.
    • I am aware of the risks involved in Masskrugstemmen, e.g. cramps, muscle tension, broken glass, or other injuries that might occur, including to my self-esteem.
    • Neither Krause's, Texas Stein Holding, nor any sponsoring brewer are to be held responsible for any injuries that occur in connection with the competition.
    • Neither Krause's, Texas Stein Holding, nor any sponsoring brewer encourage drinking. Even though Masskrugstemmen involves a filled 1 liter mug, we strongly encourage all in attendance to drink responsibly and to neither drive nor operate machinery while under the influence of alcohol.

    ** Every contestant hereby agrees that he or she is participating in this activity with the knowledge that it could result in injury and specifically absolves Krause's, Texas Stein Holding, and any sponsoring brewer from any and all liability resulting from their participation.
