Looking for something fun and different to do with your friends? Get your 21+ team together for friendly, booze-themed competition at the Durstig Games (formerly Beer Games) at GermanFest.

  • October 12, 2019 games begin at 2:00pm
  • $150.00 fee per team
  • Each team will consist of 5 members (genders don’t matter)
  • All members must be 21 or older to enter on a team
  • A team name is required and dressing up is encouraged

Entry fee includes one ticket for each team member in to GermanFest and 2 beers each!  Plus the opportunity to win some pretty great prizes.


Each competitor will be given 2 full steins. At the judge’s signal, contestants will lift their steins and hold them straight out at shoulder height. The competitor who is able to remain with their steins held in the same position the longest will win their heat.


After the 4 team members have been blindfolded, everyone will toast to their success with beer. After they have finished their toast, the blindfolded members will each take one of the Cow’s legs. The Sighter’s job is to direct them so that when they toss the the Cow, they knock down as many of the jugs as possible.


When the start signal is given, Runner 1 from each team can gather a total of 12 steins provided they can hold them which they will carry to a table at the opposite end of the course. Runner 1 will place their steins on the table and tap Runner 2 on their own team. This will continue with each runner until all runners have carried the steins. Runner 5 will pick up as many of the steins as they can hold and will carry them back to the opposite end of the course to cross the finish line.
