We are very excited to announce our partnership with the Germania Society Of Cincinnati and St. Killian Importing to bring you a state-wide Steinholding tournament that culminates with the State Championship Finals on November 6th, 2021 at Germania Society of Cincinnati! The winner of the men's and women's competition finals will be crowned the 2021 Ohio State Steinholding Champions and will each receive over $500 worth of prizes, gift cards, and Bitburger swag!
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 festivals, breweries, and bars across Ohio 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 Germania Cincinnati Championship Round. The different venues are listed below along with the dates and times for each competition. If your favorite Ohio venue isn't hosting a competition, tell them to get registered so you can join the fun!
2. You can compete at one of Germania Society Cincinnati's events throughout the summer and fall to qualify and represent Germania Cincy with the home field advantage for the finals!
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 so they best sign up! We'll be announcing more locations throughout the summer 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!
