New Jersey State Steinholding Championship

We are thrilled to be partnering with King's Road Brewing Company to bring you the 2023 New Jersey State Steinholding Championship!

We are very excited to announce our continuing partnership with King's Road Brewing Company to bring Steinholding to the Garden State and we're going big with a Steinholding tournament series that spans the great state of New Jersey and culminates with the State Championship Finals on Saturday October 21st, 2023 at 5:00pm at The Feed Mill in Medford, NJ, home of the King's Road Brewing Medford site! The winner of the men's and women's competition finals will be crowned the 2023 New Jersey State Steinholding Champions and will each receive prizes valued at over $500!

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 as a competitor for the Finals? Great question! There are two ways:

1. We're partnering with breweries, bars, and festivals across New Jersey to host preliminary qualifying rounds at these venues. The winner of each venue's men's competition and women's competition will be invited to represent that location at the State Championship Round. The different venues are listed below along with the dates and times for each competition. If your favorite Jersey venue isn't hosting a competition, tell them to get registered so you can join the fun!


2. You can compete at the Medford Oktoberfest on September 15th and 16th, 2023 and the two King's Road Brewing locations, dates/times listed below, where the winners will be invited back to the State Finals to compete 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 last long 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!
