Powder Ridge Oktoberfest – Get out your lederhosen ready, the mountain will be bursting with brews, bratwurst and bands! Beer sampling from over 30 breweries with 100’s of beers. Take a lift ride up the mountain to view the spectacular fall foliage. Live bands performing throughout the day, vendors, food trucks and of course the infamous Keg Toss Competition.

New this year – Qualifying Steinholding Competition for the CT State Championship Finals.  You’ll want to practice for this one and enter the contest onsite. Contest will start at 5:30 pm.

The winner of the Men’s and Women’s division should be able to attend the State Championship Finals the next day, Sunday October 3rd, 2021, 1:30pm at Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford, CT! The winner of the men’s and women’s competition finals will be crowned the 2021 Connecticut State Steinholding Champions and will each receive a $400 Two Roads Brewing Company gift card, and Two Roads Brewing and USSA swag!

Contest Rules

  1. The elbow – this is the most important thing to focus on. All competitors should keep their elbow locked with the arm fully extended throughout the competition. Bending of the elbow provides a massive advantage, so really keep an eye on this.
  2. The arm – the arm should be close to level with the ground (not too high or too low) and it should be held straight out in front of the competitor, perpendicular to their chests. If a competitor is holding their arm out to the side, this uses different muscles and gives them an unfair advantage.
  3. The grip – make sure that all of the competitors know that the stein must be gripped by the handle with thumb curled down.

Oktoberfest mountainside kicks off at 3 p.m. for VIPs & 4 p.m. General public
