U.S. Steinholding Association is proud to announce our first charity partnership! We're putting the power of Steinholding to good use and partnering with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF) to help raise awareness and contributions funding research into less toxic and more effective treatments for childhood cancers. To do that, we are offering any brewery who partners with NPCF a special membership package and we'll be donating 25% of our profits from the program back to NPCF!

NPCF partners with breweries and bars across the country to set up special events and designate special beers to raise funds through its Brewing Funds the Cure Program. To complement Brewing Funds the Cure and encourage venues to work with NPCF, we put together a special Hold A Stein To Drop Cancer bundle for any breweries who want to help with their mission by also hosting Steinholding competitions.

The Hold A Stein To Drop Cancer membership bundle gives you everything you need to host your own Steinholding competition and includes:

  • 12 official competition-grade 1L glass steins with the U.S. Steinholding Association logo (bundle includes cost of shipping)
  • 2 entries into the 2020 U.S. Steinholding Association Remote Steinholding Championship, one to offer to each of the overall winners of your local men's and women's competitions so they can move on to represent your venue and challenge the nation's best Steinholders. Note: Entries for the 2020 remote competition are due by November 7th, 2020, so make sure you sign up early enough to get your steins if you want to take advantage of this part of the package. We'll be using FedEx ground for for these 12-stein shipments (1-5 business days depending on location, shipping from central Pennsylvania).
  • A one-year membership into the U.S. Steinholding Association Venue Membership Program which provides our partner venues with exclusive benefits:

    • Our extensive competition planning and set-up guide
    • Our official judging manual with competition judging tips
    • Discounts on U.S. Steinholding Association merchandise and steins
    • A specialized Member Venue icon on our Competition Map
    • Extra advertising for your venue/event on our new Member Venues page
    • Expanded social media cross-promotion for Members
    • A members-only window sticker to get your patrons talking about Steinholding
    • As a bonus, any annual membership beginning in 2020 will be valid through the end of 2021, regardless of start date
    • And more!

Purchased separately, this package would cost $325 but to encourage participation in the NPCF's important mission, breweries who support the Brewing Funds the Cure program get it all for only $199. Unless you're buying in crazy bulk, you can barely get branded steins alone for that kind of deal! But what if you already have your own 1L dimpled glass steins? No worries, we have an option for you too! Use the promo code "IGOTSTEINS" at checkout and you can get the one year membership (including all benefits) as well as the 2 U.S. Steinholding Association Remote Steinholding Championship entries for only $79. That's 20% off an annual membership PLUS two free entries into the Remote Championship because we want you to have a cool way for your local competition winners to move on and become a part of the larger national Steinholding community!

This exclusive deal is for breweries who are looking to help NPCF, but don't worry- you don't have to commit to anything crazy. They are extremely flexible and easy to work with. Once you sign up with us, we forward your contact information on to NPCF and they'll contact you to figure out a partnership option that works for you, either through their awesome Rising Hope Brewing program or their super simple Tap Handle program. You can get the Hold A Stein To Drop Cancer bundle and help support an awesome cause by purchasing with "Add to Cart" link below.
