VAIL, Colo. — For the next two weekends, Coloradans can head to the mountains to celebrate all things German in Vail.

Enjoy Bavarian culture and cuisine at Vail Oktoberfest 2022 and even eat bratwurst competitively or test the limit on holding up a German stein. The World Keg Bowling Championship let's visitors try their luck at hurling a keg on wheels down a lane at a pyramid of empty kegs.

Denver7's Danny New tried his hand at keeping up in the stein-holding competition. Check it out in the video below.
