Beer boots are thought to be a uniquely German or English 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.

Very satisfied
These boots are very well made with thick glass and were exactly what I was looking for. They are a great conversation piece for social occasions. I received my order well within the expected time and the boots were very well packaged. This purchase was a very good experience.

great quality
I thought it was a great idea. Unfortunately the men that received them as gifts thought they were silly. I did think the quality was excellent. The items were shipped with great speed.

German 90th Birthday Party
These authentic, german-made beer boots were just what I was looking for. Cost Plus had them but way to large. These were perfect on the tables with white daisies in them. Plus, we gave them to guests as a door prize. They did the job!

Wish I had more of these!
I bought ten of the half liter beer boots an they worked out well. I used them as gifts for my grooms men in my wedding plus a few other guys I know. Great purchase an I wish I would have bought more since I ran out of them so quick. I recommend this to the masses since it went over so well. My neighbor drinks everything out of his boot.

Half liter boot
Great cup to take out to the bar, cause it's always a great conversation starter. I've even taken my 4 liter out to the bar, and people look at me crazy. Always good times with them, and I always tell friends

Kicking beer
Solid, useable glass. Don't have to worry about crushing it in your hand or accidentally slamming it down and breaking it. Bought 50 for an Octoberfest style fundraiser. So far everyone loves them. Keep up the good work!
