Bierhaus NYC made a significant Competitive Eating splash in 2012 when they announced the officially sanctioned National Oktoberfest Bratwurst Eating Championship. Building on the major success of last year, Bierhaus NYC once again announces this annual tradition which will be held on October 26, 2013. All Pro Eating will officially sanction this National Eating Championship which includes a $1,600.00 prize pool.

Well known as New York City’s Oktoberfest Headquarters, Bierhaus NYC continues to provide its customers and visitors an extremely unique and memorable way to celebrate Bavarian food, beer and culture. In addition to The Bierhaus NYC National Oktoberfest Bratwurst Eating Championship, there will be live music, traditional Masskrugstemmen competitions and keg tappings. The National Oktoberfest Bratwurst Eating Championship left a significant impression with the Competitive Eating fan base last year when Jamie “The Bear” McDonald ate thirty three bratwurst in eight minutes and established himself as the #1 Ranked Independent Competitive Eater in the World.

“Last year we all truly witnessed the best of the wurst!” stated Todd Greenwald, Chairman of All Pro Eating. Greenwald continued, “To stand on the hallowed ground where Oktoberfest is celebrated in true New York style and watch some of our sport’s greatest eaters devour the breathtaking bratwurst in front of them is a true honor. I don’t know what the results will be at this year’s Bierhaus NYC National Oktoberfest Bratwurst Eating Championship, but I do know that Bierhaus NYC truly delivers a complete experience that can be found nowhere else! Last year we saw a party – this year I believe we will see complete euphoria! Zum Wohl!”

Julie Yeagley, Public Relations and Marketing Director at Bierhaus NYC, said, "We are thrilled to be hosting the National Oktoberfest Bratwurst Championship again this year, as last year was such a huge success. This event is a unique and refreshing addition to the typical Oktoberfest celebrations in New York City, and it is definitely something that you will not want to miss! We are confident that this event will become a staple in future Oktoberfest celebrations in years to come, and it is an honor to know that it all started at Bierhaus NYC."

Several Professional Competitive Eaters have reserved their place at this Bratwurst Battle Part II including last year’s returning National Oktoberfest Bratwurst Eating Champion and current #1 Ranked Independent Competitive Eater, Jamie “The Bear” McDonald from Connecticut. Standing next to him will be the current #1 Ranked Female Independent Competitive Eater and #2 Overall Ranked Independent Competitive Eater, Molly Schuyler from Nebraska, who is the only person to have beaten McDonald in an officially sanctioned Independent Competitive Eating Championship. There will be significant talent long with these two Competitive Eating phenoms including last year’s second and third place finishers, Graham “The G-Man” Kist from Connecticut and David “Tiger Wings and Things” Brunelli from Pennsylvania. Additional participants include All Pro Eating’s #7 Ranked Competitive Eater, “Munchin” Mike Longo from Virgina, Paul “Poppa” Pickett from Pennsylvania, Wayne “WayneyWonder” Algenio from New York, Wes Bare from Maine and Patrick “Lumberjack” Taylor from New York. Participation in last year’s Bierhaus NYC National Oktoberfest Bratwurst Eating Championship was closed due to capacity and all interested participants are encouraged to register for the Eating Championship as soon as possible before capacity is reached for this year’s event.
