So what is it? Steinholding 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. You go as long as you can and the last person holding with good form is the winner! The winner qualifies to compete in the MA Steinholding Competition held at Jack’s Abby on October 2! Plus 1st and 2nd prize winners receive Great Awakening gift cards! For more information, check out http://www.ussteinholding.com/info/what-is-beer-steinholding-faqs.
