How to Drink from a Beer Boot

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 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 movies was released.

Excellent additions to my personal bar! The boots are good quality. I purchased the 2L, 3L, and 4L as well. I would recommend the 1L for drinking, however the others make great conversation pieces! Great quality product at the best prices I found! Enjoy!!!

Good Quality Glass
I am very impressed with the quality of these glasses! I got them for my husband as a gift (which he has yet to receive). You get very good merchandise for the price. I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 though because both of the large beer boots have scuff marks on the glass on the right side of the tip of the boot. I am not sure if they were trying to send me authentic boots, scuffs marks and all? Either way, I like that whatever I buy is in a "perfect" condition, as I am paying for something new. Aside from that, they are awesome.

Very happy with my purchase. For the price these are great. They hold three 12oz beers with room to spare (3 beers comes up to the line/indentation on the boot) Pretty thick glass...havent chipped or anything. Only complaint is that they are a little wobbly when standing...the bottoms arent totally flat, but I havent had one fall over yet
