Masskrugstemmen is a Bavarian feat of strength and endurance where contestants hold a 1-liter stein of beer (which weighs about 5 pounds) out in front of them at shoulder level for as long as they can. No beer can be spilled, no elbows can be bent, and extended arms must be kept parallel to the ground. The winner is the person who can keep their stein aloft the longest.

Finger Wrestling Fingerhalkn is an old Bavarian sport. It is a two person competition. A leather strap is put around each contestant’s middle finger, then the two pull with all their might. The person whose arm gets yanked across the line in the middle of the table loses. Settle your quarrels the way wave they do in the Alpine country – with middle fingers! Each contestant will need to have an assistant to catch them. Competition will continue until a champion is crowned – MAX heats is 4. (Grand Champion wins $100!)
