Each day there will be a Steinhoist Contest. You’ll have a chance to hold a beer in your outstretched hand and arm longer than any other mortal. And each day there will be the DAS BOOT Contest. You and four of your friends can compete against another team in a beer guzzling contest.
Guests are encouraged to wear lederhosen dirndls and other festive German attire. You can find a selection of these here.
