Stein Stand-Off


Take “holding your liquor” to a whole new level at Der Schwarze Kolner this week. Tuesday marks the finals for the bar’s Masskrugstemmen (or, for non-German speakers, “mug-holding competition.”) Participants, who have made it through preliminary rounds, are challenged to hold a one-liter stein filled with beer at arm’s length for as long as possible — it sounds easy, but the stamina required means that most people can only make it a few minutes before giving in. Come to Der Schwarze Kolner on Tuesday night to watch the best in the neighborhood compete — and while there, pick up a stein and start training for next year’s!
