Beer Stein Holding Competitions

MASSKRUGSTEMMEN

Stein holding is a traditional Bavarian strength contest in which competitors hold a full one-liter beer stein (or Masskrug/Mass in German) out in front of their bodies with a straight arm, parallel to the ground. The Nashville Oktoberfest has a proud tradition of hosting a series of qualification rounds before a grand final on the last day of the festival!
