California State Steinholding Championship

We are very excited to be partnering with Beers In Sac and Natomas Oktoberfest once again to bring you the 2023 California State Steinholding Championship!

We are very excited to announce our partnership with Beers In Sac to bring Steinholding to the West Coast in a BIG way with California's only state-wide Steinholding tournament series that culminates with the State Championship Finals on September 30th, 2023 at the Natomas Oktoberfest at North Natomas Regional Park in Sacramento, CA! The winner of the men's and women's championship finals will be crowned the 2023 California State Steinholding Champions and will each receive $500 in prizes!

There are a limited number of spots available for the finals and you'll need to compete at one of our Qualifying Venue partner locations (listed below) to earn your spot in the finals and get your shot at the big prizes and eternal glory.

How do I qualify for the Finals?

We're partnering with breweries, bars, and festivals across the great state of California to host preliminary qualifying rounds at these venues. The winner of each Qualifying location's men's competition and women's competition will be invited to represent the venue at the Championship Round at Natomas Oktoberfest. The different venues are listed below along with the dates and times for each Qualifying Round competition. We'll be adding more venues as the season progresses, but if your favorite Cali venue isn't hosting a competition, tell them to get registered ASAP so you can join the fun!

What are the rules?

U.S. Steinholding Association Official Competition Rules will be used in the Qualifying Round and at the State Finals Competition. There will be a team of USSA-trained judges at the finals, so study up on the rules and spend some time training to make sure your form is clean, or you won't last long in the Championship Round!

Alright, I'm in. Where can I compete?!

Check out the initial competition map and venue list below. Don't see your favorite venue listed? Reach out to them and tell them that you DEMAND STEINHOLDING and they need to sign up! We'll be announcing more locations throughout the summer and fall so check back and follow us on FB and IG for updates. And remember- these venues will have limited spaces available for their qualifying rounds, so show up early and register in advance with the venue if you can!
