Secret Way to Drink from a Beer Boot

This is a traditional European (German) pressed glass drinking boot. This popular item is always an excellent topic of conversation. The secret to drinking from the boot is to point the toe sideways. When the toe is pointed downward, the boot cannot be easily emptied. When the toe is pointed upwards, the liquid flows out of the boot very quickly and uncontrollably, usually spilling all over the drinker.

History Beer Boots

The German custom of drinking from a boot shaped drinking vessel supposedly started as a German army tradition during World War I. Soldiers would pass around a leather boot of bier prior to engaging the enemy. It was considered good luck to flick the beer boot before and after drinking from it. Americans soldiers were introduced to the custom of drink from a glass beer boot while stationed in Germany after World War II. There is a trick to drinking from a beer boot as to not get showered with beer if the toe of the boot is pointed in the wrong direction. The American soldiers had great fun with the beer boots and the fine German beer during their time in Germany. Many of them brought back beer boots and beer steins with them on their return to United States.

Das Boot
I bought two boots. One for me and one for my son. He was born in January 1985 in Wuerzburg, Germany. I was a military wife. I brought home a baby boot and we have used that. He is 26 years old and has his own place, so I wanted him to have something from the country he was born in. We just love them and I hope to order more from ya'll.
