Update 11:55 a.m. Friday Aug. 28:
The Oktoberfest Zinzinnati winner appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” is no sure thing, contrary to my original post below, says Rich Walburg, Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber communications director.
Walburg just called me back to say he was wrong about the local winner going to "Kimmel." The winner of the Sam Adams Stein Hoisting Competition Sept. 19 on Fountain Square COULD appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” – if he or she has one of the top three times for holding the beer stein in similar contests across the country, he says.
The three strongest men and women – those who held a full beer stein the longest – will go to the “Kimmel” show, he says.
So start working out!
