Welcome to the U.S. Steinholding Association!
The U.S. Steinholding Association is the leading source for everything you need to know about the world's greatest festival sport: Steinholding / Masskrugstemmen! We have a ton of resources to offer, but check out some of our most popular content below.
In our years of training, competing, judging, and organizing Steinholding competitions, we have seen incredible examples of athleticism, determination, and sportsmanship. So we made it our goal to share these experiences across the country and the world. We continue to strive to elevate the sport through all of our activities, including:
- Serving as governing body for the sport by providing well-defined, standardized rules by which competitions will be judged.
- Providing an access point to newcomers by creating a resource for finding competition locations nationwide.
- Creating resources to help breweries, bars, restaurants, festivals, and other venues set up and host great Steinholding competitions.
- Organizing State Championship Tournaments across the United States.
- Sharing competition results to honor the hard work and determination of Steinholding competitors.
- Providing training guides for competitors who want to extend their times and move on to a higher level of competition.
