In the Masskrugstemmen Contest, the strongest last the longest. This “beer-stein holding” contest is a traditional Bavarian endurance contest during which contestants must hold a one-liter stein of beer in one outstretched arm for as long as possible. A filled stein weighs roughly five pounds and you must keep it parallel to the ground at all times. If you spill one drop you will be disqualified. Do you have what it takes?
