Description

As part of the 7th annual Roxtoberfest street festival taking place Saturday, October 5, 2019 two stein holding competitions are being organized for adults 21 years and older. The competitions start at 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the Roxtoberfest Main Stage at the intersection of Ridge Avenue and Lyceum Avenue. Entered competitors have the chance to win 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes depending on the time the stein is held the longest.

This year's first place stein holding champion will win a $50.00 Gift Card to a local business on Ridge Avenue in Roxborough. Limited spaces are available for the competition and entrants will be randomly selected based upon available slots the week leading up to Roxtoberfest. Rules and requirements are listed below, competitors will be required to complete a waiver form prior to the competition. Fill out this Eventbrite entry form to be considered for the competition.

The Roxtoberfest Steinholding Competition will abide by the Official U.S. Steinholding Association Rules Version 1.1, updated June 2018. See the following link for the complete Steinholding Association Rules.

  • A 1L glass stein with handle will be used.
  • Stein will be filled with liquid to the 1L lip.
  • Stein must be gripped by the handle.
  • The thumb may not rest on top of the stein handle, it must rest on the other fingers.
  • Pinkie finger may be held outside of the handle.
  • Arching of the back is allowable, however excessive leaning is unacceptable.
  • The stein must be gripped such that the front of the stein faces away from the competitor (the stein can't be gripped sideways).
  • Stein must be held out in front of the competitor, not out to the side.
  • The arm holding the stein must remain close to parallel with the floor and should be extended straight with very little bending at the elbow.
  • The arm holding the stein should remain separated from the chest of the competitor. The chest may not be used as a shelf to support the arm.
  • The off-hand should remain at the competitor's side or back and may not touch or be used to support the arm holding the stein.
  • An infraction of any rule will result in a strike. After two strikes, the third infraction leads to elimination of the competitor.
  • If any amount of beer spills or drips off of the stein, the competitor is eliminated, regardless of the number of previously assigned strikes. During outdoor competitions or humid conditions, judges should be sure to differentiate between dripping resulting from condensation and dripping resulting from beer spillage.
  • Competitors should not contact any structures, objects or people during the competition.
  • Competitors must stand within their personal area and should not move more than is necessary to make adjustments ensuring proper form during the competition.
