The men and women’s stein hoist, a Bavarian strength contest, begins at 8 p.m. Sign up is at 7:30 p.m. Participants hold a stein of beer with a straight arms as long as possible. The person who holds the stein longest is the winner.

 

There is a $5 entry fee to cover the cost of beer and an ID is required to obtain a stein hoist mug, which must be returned after finishing the beer.
