More about beer boot glasses:
Beer boots are a uniquely German innovation. Leave it to the world's greatest beer loving nation to come up with drinking from a boot! Glass beer boots are a popular German souvenir especially in Bavaria and Munich's Okotoberfest.

History of 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 .

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.

Great gift, great customer service!
Loved the set of boots! Great gift to get or receive. Truebeer had the best price after much searching online and in local stores. Great quality as well! When I contacted Truebeer, worried I might not receive beer boots in time for gift giving, Matthew B helped expedite the package and I got it on time. Thanks so much Matthew, Otto and Truebeer!!

Half Liter Beer Boot Set
I ordered this set for my daughter's Wisconsin wedding and had the rim painted with a sprig of baby's breath, reminiscent of her bouquet. They were put on the bride's table and made quite a hit.

Das Boot
Great glass, great conversation piece when friends are over and big enough to hold a bottle of beer, but not big that the beer gets warm.
