Meet Yr New Hero, Who Just Broke The World Record For Carrying The Most Beer

Now here is a guy you want buying the next round. Today in ‘world records broken that you didn’t know existed’ news, a German man with the best name ever, Oliver Strümpfel, has defeated himself, to break his own world record, that he set, in carrying shitloads of beer a short distance. This is important.

Breaking the record at the Gillamoos Fair in Bavaria, he managed to carry a bonkers 29 steins filled with beer over 40 metres, with the steins weighing in at almost 70kg. 

To break the record Strümpfel had to pick up all the steins from a table, carry them the complete distance and place them down onto a bench, all without spilling more than 10 percent of the delicious beverage inside. I can’t even do that with one schooner.

Check out his excellent effort:

Attempting to smash his old record of 25 beers, Strümpfel first attempted to add more to his pile, but two were sadly dropped along the way. This also happens when I attempt to carry three beers at once.

I first did 27, because I wanted to be sure and then at the end I said, ‘Let’s add another one and get over 30’. Unfortunately it didn’t quite work, but having managed to put 29 down … I think it’s amazing.

Training for the record was serious business, with the Beer Man hitting the gym three or four times a week for months, and saying: “When I think about it, it’s 200 hours for about 40 seconds of walking.

Strümpfel is determined to return next year and beat his own record, yet again.

Cheers to that.
