In 2005, we introduced Hammerschlagen® to the Pacific Northwest. It quickly became one of the most exciting bar games in the region, and now you could call it, "A PNW Past Time". 

The goal is to drive a nail into a cross section of wood faster than your opponents. Easy you say? Well then, we will see you at Oktoberfest Northwest to see if you actually have what it takes.

Play is OPEN to all guests throughout the weekend, however, ONLY registered competitors may play during the Tournament of Champions, on Saturday night!

The Tournament of champions!
