Get Buff for Bridger's Stein Holding Competition

Craft beer week is just around the corner and if you intend to win Bridger Brewing’s 3rd Annual Stein Holding Competition, now is the time to hit the gym.  We’ve prepared a few moves to help you get in shape no matter when or where you work out.

Stein holding requires you to hold a stein straight out in front of you with your arm parallel to the ground.  It may seem like a simple task and might even feel like it for the first minute. But this event is no joke! Once pain from the strain of holding up a stein full of liquid for minutes on end begins radiateing from your arm to the shoulder and down the back you realize this event is not for the faint of heart.  This competition will leave you shaking until your body just gives up on you. Don’t worry, though, you don’t have to show up completely unprepared. We’ve got some exercise tips to help you have the upper hand (pun intended) when it comes to your next stein holding escapade!
