Look no further than the Biergarten for a place to hang out and cool off this year. Located next to Main Stage, this festive tent is home to two of our fan favorite activities: The Home Brew Competition and the Stein Hoisting Competition. There’s always lots of fun and shenanigans happening in the Biergarten, so grab a stein and head on over!

Home Brew Competition

Oktoberfest attendees will have the opportunity to partake in a tasting event, co-hosted with Grains & Taps, on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Biergarten while participating home brewers serve up samples of their best brews!

Tasting Glasses

Pre-Registration Tickets to the Home Brew Competition are SOLD OUT. There will be a limited amount of tickets sold at the door on Saturday.

Steinhoisting Competition

Think you’ve got what it takes? Test your strength at 2:15 p.m. Saturday, September 24 at the Main Stage! The object of the game is to hoist a full liter stein longer than anyone else. Competitors must use only one hand and steins must be held at arm’s length without spilling.

All participants will receive a commemorative glass stein filled with an ice cold beer to compete with during the competition. Upon completion of the competition the mug is yours and of course, you get to drink the beer!

One male and one female winner will be crowned and will receive an awesome prize!

Participants must be 21 or older. Participation is limited and based on a first come first serve for men’s and women’s categories.
