Liberty and st killian

We are very excited to be partnering with the Liberty Home Association German Club as the host venue for our 2023 Ohio Steinholding State Championship Finals! And since Steinholding is always better when there's great beer in your glass, we're excited to announce that St. Killian Importing, the importer of great German beers like Bitburger and Erdinger, will once again be the official beer sponsor of the 2023 Ohio Steinholding State Championship Finals! The best Steinholders from across the state will come together at Liberty Home Association on October 14th, 2023 where the winners will be crowned the 2023 Ohio State Steinholding Champions and will each receive over $500 worth of 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 qualify for the finals and get your shot at the big prizes.

How do I qualify for the Finals? There are two ways:

1. Festivals, breweries, and bars across Ohio are hosting preliminary qualifying rounds! The winners from the men's competition and women's competition at each location will be invited to represent their qualifying location at the Liberty Home Association Championship Match. The different venues are listed below along with the dates and times for each competition. If your favorite venue isn't hosting a competition, tell them to get registered so you can join the fun!


2. You can compete at one of Liberty Home's qualifying events throughout the summer and fall on June 10th, July 8th, August 5th, and September 1st - 3rd, 2023 to qualify and represent Liberty Home with the home field advantage for the finals!

What are the rules?

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!

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

Check out the initial state competition map and venue list below. Don't see your favorite venue listed? Let them know that you DEMAND STEINHOLDING so they best sign up! We'll be announcing more locations throughout the summer as registrations come in 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!
