Man Sets Record for Beer Carrying – Set’s Bar High for Alcohol Delivery


Sep 09

This past weekend, a 38-year old tax inspector from Abensberg set a new world record in the art of “beer-mug-carrying.” Oliver Struempfel carried 27 full one-liter beer mugs – or “mass” as they are known in German just over 130 feet, with each mug weighing approximately 5 pounds!

“I have worked here in the beer tent for the past 17 years, so I have lots of training,”

Struempfel told Reuters after winning the competition at the local Gillamoos beer festival. With Oktoberfest just two weeks away, we can only hope to see more heroics of this kind in the very near future!
