STEIN HOIST CHAMP HOLDS UP TO TEST

Jonathon Alderman, 34, of Lakeland winces as he sets a new record for the stein hoist at the Oktoberfest Tampa event Sunday at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. Alderman held the filled liter glass of beer for 25:05, beating his old record by two minutes. He has won this event at Oktoberfest Tampa three times in a row. The waterfront park was transformed into a giant beer garden with live music, German food and activities for children and adults. At right, Xander McColley, 9, of Tampa competes in the stein hoist with Zoe Neville, 10, of Largo and Katherine Roberts, 10, of Clearwater at the Oktoberfest Tampa event. The liquid in the glasses is a mixture that is 20 percent beer and 80 percent water, according to an event organizer.
