Are you strong enough to outlast all others? Let’s put that to the test. The game is simple, hold a 1 Liter glass stein filled to the brim with liquid and with your arm held at a straight ninety degree angel in front of you; parallel to the floor with your elbow locked. Once a competitor’s elbow bends or spills/drops the stein, the person is removed from the contest. Longest time wins the competition. Competition will be held each day and there is a men’s and women’s category. Registration is that day at the beer trailer.
