Missed Out on Oktoberfest? Win Tickets for Next Year via Sam Adams
Kicking yourself for not pulling the trigger on a trip to Oktoberfest this year? And the year before and the one before that? You're not alone. But you know what will ensure you don't procrastinate again next year? Free tickets!
Sam Adams is currently running rounds of its National Stein Hoisting Competition, in which contestants have to hold a 1-liter stein of beer straight out in front of them for as long as possible without bending their arm or, worse, spilling the beer. The two hoisters who hold it up the longest (one male and one female) will each win a trip for two to next year’s Oktoberfest in Munich.
Sounds like a fun event, win or lose, sure to spark some energy in the bar. Keep in mind this is a national competition, though, so you’ll compete at your local event, but your time is compared against fellow beer lovers across the country. You can check out the current leaderboard here. So far, the best time for men is 13 minutes, 27 seconds and 9 minutes, 26 seconds for women.
Stein hoisting events are coming to various bars throughout New York (Oct 5th, 10th, 14th), Philly (6th), Boston (9th, 10th), Las Vegas (7th, 9th, 14th), San Diego (6th), and Portland (12th), among others, through Oct 20th, so better get
drinking practicing. You can find out details of the hoisting challenge near you by searching here.
