Topgolf® Stein Hoisting Competition (the “Contest”) is open to legal residents of the United States (except residents of CA) who are at least twenty-one (21) years of age at the time of entry. Employees (and their immediate families) of The Boston Beer Company (the “Sponsor”) and any of their parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, independent contractors, agencies, alcoholic beverage wholesalers and retailers, and any persons living in the same household as such employees and past winners of the National Stein Hoisting Competition are not eligible to participate in the Contest (cumulatively, the “Contest Entities”). Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited by law. The Contest is on 9/29/2017 at or about 8:00 p.m. Local Time and ends 9/29/2017, at or about 9:00 p.m. Local Time (the “Contest Period”).


On 9/29/2017 entrants will compete to hold one (1) liter stein filled to the brim with liquid and held by a straight ninety degree (90°) arm in front of entrant, parallel to the floor with elbows locked. Once entrant’s elbow bends or spills/drops the stein, entrant loses the Contest. Only steins provided by Sponsor specifically for the Contest can be used for the Contest. Entrants who drink out of the Sponsor supplied stein will be disqualified. No other stein may be substituted for the stein that Sponsor provides contestants. Each round of stein hoisting will consist of approximately four (4) to 18 (18) participants. Entry is not limited. A Sponsor representative will record the time of the last entrant holding his or her stein. From all the completed rounds at ALL promotions held during the contest period, one (1) male and one (1) female with the longest stein hoisting time will be selected as the winner of the First Prize. In the event there is a tie between two (2) or more males and two (2) or more females, a tie-breaker will be held at the promotion to determine the winner with the longest stein hoisting time. If entrants do not respond to Sponsor confirming tie-breaker participation in a timely manner, entrants will be disqualified.


The best Male & Female times at each participating Topgolf® location will each win a Topgolf Gift Card with an ARV of $100.00.

The selection of winners and awarding of prizes will be conducted under the supervision of the Sponsor whose decisions are final and binding in all matters pertaining to this Contest. No cash alternative or prize substitutions will be allowed, except that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prize(s) of comparable value if the prize listed is unavailable for any reason.
