Oliver Struempfel set a reputed world record for carrying beer. Video shows him pressing the 27 steins together in one great two-tiered mass.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. If you join a large party at a restaurant, the waiter you want to wave over is Oliver Struempfel. The German waiter set a reputed world record for carrying beer. He carried 27 full beer steins, all at once, to a table 131 feet away. Video shows him pressing the glasses together in one great, two-tiered mass. He says he trained for months to build his strength. And we can only hope that afterward, he saved a beer for himself. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
