Massachusetts State Steinholding Championship

We're partnering with Jack's Abby Craft Lagers to bring you the 2024 Massachusetts State Steinholding Championship!

Jack's Abby

We are very excited to announce our partnership with Jack's Abby Craft Lagers to bring more Steinholding to New England! We're going big with a Steinholding tournament series that spans the great state of Massachusetts and culminates with the State Championship Finals on October 6th, 2024 at 3:00pm at the Jack's Abby Oktoberfest in Framingham, MA! The winner of the men's and women's competition finals will be crowned the 2024 Massachusetts State Steinholding Champions and will each receive prizes valued at $500 including Jack's Abby gift cards and 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, bars, and festivals across Massachusetts who will host preliminary qualifying rounds. The winner of each venue's men's competition and women's competition will be invited to represent them at the Jack's Abby State Championship Finals Round. The different venues are listed below along with the dates and times for each competition. If your favorite Mass. venue isn't hosting a competition, tell them to get registered so you can join the fun!


2. You can compete at Jack's Abby Oktoberfest on September 27th, 2024 at 7:00pm. The top men and women competitors on 09/27 will be invited back to compete in the Championship Finals Round on October 6th, 2024 for the title of State Champion!

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 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!
