'Today' Celebrates Oktoberfest With Beer Stein-Holding Contest (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 7th 2011 12:30PM
The 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) gang celebrated Oktoberfest by playing a classic German game called masskrug, where participants have to hold out a full, 1-liter beer stein parallel to the ground without spilling. It's a physical challenge that traditionally has accompanied a drinking extravaganza.

While twenty minutes is the world record, Al Roker, Ann Curry, Savannah Guthrie all lasted just over a minute. Guest-host Kim Kardashian tapped out first, around the 50 second mark. At one point Matt Lauer busted Al Roker's chops, asking him, "Is that a light beer?"

Those are not steins. A stein, as the name suggests, is made out of stoneware. The item depicted is a Masskrug. It measures one liter, and is standard glassware at the annual tourist trap known as Oktoberfest. FYI, most of Oktoberfest takes place in September.
