Masskrugstemmen Tonight At Flying Saucer And The Londoner

by Steven Doyle

One of the signature events at Addison’s Oktoberfest is Thursday night’s MassKrug competition.  Four semi-finalists will compete – holding a 1 liter stein full of beer for as long as they can without spilling a drop.  The final winner holds their beer the longest and will a trip to a California Oktoberfest (airfare for two, hotel, and the works).

The game hails from Germany, where it is played at festivals, in biergartens, and even in grade schools. Masskrugstemmen has caught on here in America in the past few years, with regional and national competitions being held around the country. A liter of beer weighs about 5 pounds. 

Check out the preliminaries at one of a few Addison including the Flying Saucer and The Londoner tonight Tuesday, September 19, 6:30 p.m. You can also catch the competition Wednesday night at Social House in Addison Wednesday, September 19, 6:30 p.m. The finalists will go on to compete Thursday at the opening of the Addison Oktoberfest.

  1. I’ve got to go with a freshly tapped and poured Paulaner Salvator Doppel Bock. The bottle is ok, but typically has been on the shelf too long for my tastes. I like beer, not coppery blood taste from oxidization. I will definitely be at Saucer tonight. Takes for the heads up.
