We had such a great time last night at the Samuel Adams Stein-Hoisting competition at the Iron Monkey. Dozens of competitors tried their hardest to keep their steins up to win the chance to be part of the national hoisting competition. The national winners – one male and one female – will win a trip to the 2012 Oktoberfest celebration in Munich, Germany.
The rules were pretty simple: At the start of each heat, all contestants had to hold up their filled stein parallel to the ground, with a completely straight arm. That’s it. The second anyone started to bend their arm, or started to spill, they were out.
We had some awesome competitors, including Brian, who kept it going for 7 minutes and 32 seconds. But the winner of the night, and the current national champion, is Rob, who hoisted his stein for a full 8 minutes and 12 seconds – now, that’s impressive!
Good luck, Rob, and thanks to everyone who came out and made the night so much fun!
