 Masskrugstemmen

It’s Oktoberfest, time to gather with friends, raise your steins full of German beer and…hold them out in front of you for as long as you can. At least that’s what they’ll be doing this weekend at Cooper’s.

Mass-what’s-that-now?

Masskrugstemmen is a Bavarian feat of strength and endurance where contestants hold a 1-liter stein of beer (which weighs about 5 pounds) out in front of them at shoulder level for as long as they can. No beer can be spilled, no elbows can be bent, and extended arms must be kept parallel to the ground. The winner is the person who can keep their stein aloft the longest.

The German word “masskrug” translates into a one-liter stein of beer, and “stemmen” means “lift.” Put them together and you have a pretty accurate description of what the competition is about.

So what does it feel like to play a round? “After a while it’s like holding a whole keg of beer!” Said Sean Wolf, the head Judge for the Cooper’s Masskrugstemmen Championship.

“First, your arm starts feeling heavy; then the feeling goes down your back; then there is a lot of shaking going on!”
