We are very excited to announce our partnership with the SteelStacks Bethlehem Oktoberfest to bring Steinholding back to PA's Lehigh Valley and we're going big with a Steinholding tournament series that spans the great state of Pennsylvania and culminates with the State Championship Finals on October 9th, 2022 at the SteelStacks in Bethlehem, PA! The Sam Adams Oktoberfest will be flowing, and the winner of the men's and women's competition finals will be crowned the 2022 Pennsylvania State Steinholding Champions and will each receive a $500 cash prize!
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 qualify for the finals and get your shot at the big prizes.
1. We're partnering with breweries, bars, and festivals across our home state of Pennsylvania to host preliminary qualifying rounds at these venues. Each location will be sending the winner of their men's competition and women's competition to represent them at the SteelStacks State Championship Round. The different venues are listed below along with the dates and times for each competition. If your favorite PA venue isn't hosting a competition, tell them to get registered so you can join the fun!
2. You can compete every hour, on the hour, at the SteelStacks Oktoberfest during festival hours (aside from the opening and closing hour) on (dates TBD). The winners of each heat will be invited back on Sunday October 1st, 2022 for the local finals and the winners of that event will move on to compete in the Championship Finals Round on October 9th, 2022 for the title of State Champion.
U.S. Steinholding Association Official Steinholding Rules will be used. There will be a team of official USSA 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 make it far in the Championship Round!
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. 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!
