   The Stein Club is one of the newest clubs within our Club!   However, beer steins have been around since the Teutonia was founded!

The Stein Club is a group of Stein enthusiasts who bring their steins to the Club to compete for "oldest", "most unique" and other categories.

They also are usually joined by experts who can tell them about the history of various types of steins.
