How to Drink from a Beer Boot
This is a traditional European (German) blown 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.

About the Tradition behind the Beer Boot:
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.

Beer boots saw a rise in popularity with the release of the movie BEERFEST by the folks from the Broken Lizard comedy group. In this movie beer boots were used in a beer drinking competition that was no doubt repeated countless times on college campuses after the movie was released.

hit of the party
I ordered this beer boot as part of a new drinking tradition I wanted to start for my annual Canada Day party. It turned out to be the hit of the party, as everyone wanted to have their photo taken with it! Beautifully made and fun to drink out of, this beer boot enjoys a place of honor on my mantel.

great boot
the boot is amazing. I love it and so does my boyfriend. I bought one for each of us. Great gift. Only problem is engraving them - I had to buy a personal engraver because no one would engrave it because it would breake in their machine. But still an amazing gift - love it :)
