REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS OPEN!
To Utah! To Snowbird, more specifically! The 3rd annual Snowbird Bratwurst Eating Championship is soon upon us. Major League Eaters from across the world are warmly invited to sign up for the chance to compete in this majestic event.
And we say majestic not only because the brats on offer are truly delicious because of course they are. And it is not because of the $4,000 on offer, although only a fool would scoff at being rewarded with money for eating a lot. No. The true majesty lies in the venue itself. Snowbird’s Oktoberfest is a perfect slice of alpine merriment. How could it not be, nestled as it is high in the mountains of Utah, glowing in the late summer sun? MLE members who have not competed in this event are encouraged to do so. The place is stunning.
At last year’s event, Geoffrey Esper put away 33 4.5oz brats—big boys—in 10 minutes. It was his first time facing the brat in a contest setting. (We assume he has eaten them recreationally. It’d be weird if he’d never eaten a brat. And Geoffrey is not weird.) He fell one brat short of Gideon Oji’s 2017 haul of 34 brats—the mark to beat this year.
Do you want to win money by eating brats in one of the most beautiful places on this great Earth? If the answer is no, why are you even reading this? There are other webpages to read. So many pages. This page is for those who get it: This is the Snowbird Bratwurst Eating Championship. At the table or in the crowd, don’t you ever miss it!
