Hold Your Beer


Feats of strength & great prizes from Victory Brewing at Castle Ringstetten. With Billy Murphy’s Beer Garden and the behemoth Tapasaurus!

Masskrugstemmen – or, beer stein holding – is a Bavarian competition that’s pretty self explanatory: you see who can hold their beer in one hand the longest. A full liter glass stein. Straight out in front of you. Parallel to the floor or you’re out.

How long do you think you could last?

September 30th is your chance to find out, when Victory Brewing presents East Falls Masskrugstemmen at this year’s Oktoberfest. Prizes awarded for 1st , 2nd  & 3rd place, Mens & Women’s categories.

1st Place: Victory hat, t-shirt, beer stein and a bottle of Victory’s rare, caged & corked Golden Monkey Belgian-style tripel. 2nd wins a bottle of the Monkey and an EFL t-shirt. 3rd Place: EFL t-shirt. Plus, a year’s worth of bragging rights around the neighborhood.

Victory rep Adam Lucci will be judging the contest according to the official Masskrugstemmen rule book.

Brush on some training techniques and get ready to pit your guns against your fellow Fallsers this Oktoberfest!

Live music & authentic Bavarian spread in an historic Kelly Drive boathouse. Stay fortified all party long with German brews at Billy Murphy’s Beer Garden:

Big open porch. Wide grassy lawn. Tents and long tables and… TAPASAURUS! Murphy’s rolling in his buddy’s massive converted RV beer wagon with 8 taps flowing to keep your steins filled with craft-brewed cheer.
