Four Peaks Stein-Holding Contest Qualifier @ Copper Blues!
Wed Sep 15 2021 at 07:00 pm
Copper Blues Rock Pub & Kitchen - Phoenix | Phoenix, AZ
AdvertisementAt the Oktoberfest celebration in Munich, Germany, there’s a tradition known as Masskrugstemmen. You might know it better as a stein-holding contest. To win, competitors must hold a 1-liter stein full of beer at shoulder level with their arm extended for as long as they can. No beer can be spilled, no elbows can be bent, and your arm must stay parallel to the ground. The winner is the person who can keep their stein aloft the longest.
This year, Four Peaks is partnering with the U.S. Steinholding Association to bring the Masskrugstemmen to Arizona. At more than a dozen qualifying events at bars and restaurants across the state—including three separate events at Four Peaks 8th Street—fans will have the chance to compete in official, sanctioned stein-holding contests. Anyone over the age of 21 is welcome to attend a qualifier and compete for the grand prize: An all-expenses-paid trip for two to the 2022 Oktoberfest in Munich and a private tour at Spaten Brewery in Munich.
Qualifying rounds for the Four Peaks Stein-Holding Contest will take place September 15th @ Copper Blues in downtown Phoenix. The top stein-hoisters in the men’s and women’s categories from each qualifier will move on to the finals. Visit fourpeaks.com/events for a full list of competition dates and qualifying venues.
