Strongman Contest at Flamen Hot

Flamen Hot is a little brewery located on the second floor of a very average looking building in Xujiahui district.  With decoration that can be confusing (Mardi gras masks meets Spanish flamenco art meets German brauhaus?), it all takes a backseat during their Strongman competition.

The Strongman competition starts at 6:00 and goes on every half hour or until there are no more people willing to partake. Object of the event is simple; 4 contestants at a time hold a 1 liter mug of beer in an outstretched hand for as long as possible without bending at the elbow. Once your beer touches the table, you are eliminated and the last person standing gets a free 1 liter mug of beer!
