Texas State Steinholding Championship

We are partnering with the legendary Wurstfest in New Braunfels to bring you the 2022 Texas State Steinholding Championship!

Krause's Cafe

We are very excited to announce our partnership with Wurstfest to bring even bigger Steinholding action to Texas Hill Country and we're going big with a Steinholding tournament series that spans the great state of Texas and culminates with the State Championship Finals on Sunday November 13th, 2022 at Wurstfest in beautiful New Braunfels, Texas! The winner of the men's and women's competition finals will be crowned the 2022 Texas State Steinholding Champions and will each receive $500 in prizesand 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.

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

1. We're partnering with breweries, festivals, and bars across the Lone Star State 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 Wurstfest Championship Round. The different venues are listed below along with the dates and times for each competition. If your favorite Texas venue isn't hosting a competition, tell them to get registered so you can join the fun!


2. You can qualify at Wurstfest where competitions will be hosted throughout the 10 day festival. The strongest competitors qualifying at Wurstfest will be invited back to compete in the State Finals Championship Round!

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. So 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 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!
