Pic of the Day: Man Carrying 56 Beers

Posted By on Mon, May 7, 2012 at 1:54 PM


Meet Herman Pirchner, the fine man who owned the Alpine Village.

The pic is from the Cleveland Memory Project and might be one of our favorite shots ever from the CSU archives.

Here's the caption: "Herman Pirchner, the owner of the Alpine Village, carrying 56 sixteen ounce steins of beer without a tray. Pirchner developed the trick to win a contest sponsored by Anheuser-Busch. The Alpine Village was know as the premiere restaurant in the Theatre District from 1934-1961."

Pretty much puts to shame anything we've learned how to do recently.
