We're very excited to continue our partnership with Schulz Bräu Brewing Company to bring Steinholding to Tennessee and we're going even bigger this year with a Steinholding tournament series that spans the Volunteer State and culminates with the State Championship Finals on October 19th, 2024 at Schulz Bräu in Knoxville, TN! The Schulz Bräu Oktoberfest beer will be flowing, and the winner of the men's and women's 2024 finals will be crowned the Tennessee Steinholding State Champions and will each receive a $500 cash prize!

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 Tennessee 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 Schulz Bräu for the State Championship Finals. The different venues are listed below along with the dates and times for each competition. If your favorite TN venue isn't hosting a competition, tell them to get registered so you can join the fun!


2. You can compete at Schulz Bräu's Oktoberfest and battle through Knoxville's toughest Steinholders! Competitors who post the top times during their Knoxville Oktoberfest preliminary competitions from September 21st through October 13th will earn the right to compete in the State Championship Finals on 10/19 with home field advantage!

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!
