A new world record for beer stein carrying was set when a German man carried 29 steins filled with beer for 40 meters.

Oliver Strümpfel broke the record at a festival in Bavaria — a part of the world that really loves beer — Reuters reported. He also held the previous world record, carrying 25 beer steins in 2014.
