Oliver Struempfel carried 29 beer steins, beating his own, earlier record by two mugs.

Beer is serious business in Germany. Oliver Struempfel proved it recently by beating his own record for carrying the largest number of filled beer steins in Abensberg.

After his first attempt with 27 tankards went well, he decided to up the ante by adding four more mugs.

Struempfel didn’t succeed completely as two mugs fell at the last minute. However, he still set a record with 29 mugs. That’s more than 69 kilograms of beer and glass.

“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,” Struempfel said. “Unfortunately it didn’t quite work, but having managed to put 29 down, although I actually got to the end with 31, I think it’s amazing.”

What does it take to achieve this? Among other things, a consistent training schedule at the gym. And, of course, the willpower to not just stop and quaff the beer.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
