New to Oktoberfest, this stage offers unique and fun-filled experiences and contests to bring “out the Bavarian” in all of us! Learn how to Speak Like a True Oktoberfestian (German Lessons), meet the brewmasters from Franconia and Tupps, and learn how to homebrew and cook with German beer. And what would an Oktoberfest be without a stein holding competition and a brat eating contest? On Saturday, Hofbrau Bier is looking for men and woman who love beer — and a challenge — to compete in the Masskrugstemmen – stein holding contest. The person with the longest time wins a free trip to Las Vegas for the next round of the Hofbrau competition. And on Sunday, the Bavarian Experience Stage hosts the first annual Tupps brat eating contest with a trophy and prizes going to the winner!
