The Old Stein Inn in Edgewater is looking for contestants who can eat 40 mini bratwursts for its first Battle of the Brats. The winner will receive an appropriate Wurstanator crown and all the glory associated with it.
Prospective contestants are asked to send an e-mail with their name and contact info and a short paragraph on why they should be chosen to compete. Only 12 people will be selected for the May 20 chowdown.
The winners will be named on April 28. Each contestant will receive a beer stein and a T-shirt.
There is a catch, but it’s all good. Contestants will need to raise a $250 entry fee, which will be donated to the nonprofit South River Youth Athletics (SRYA). Of course, they can raise additional money, too!
In fact, the whole event benefits SRYA, a group that supports athletic programs for children in that area.
