One Liter Beer Boot - 33 Ounces

Das Boot! Treat yourself to this one liter or 33 ounces beer boot! Holds almost (3) twelve ounce beers. The beer boot is machine blown in a mould and is made from thick glass. A seam from the mouth runs along the length of the glass boot. This is an affordable alternative to our European produced products.

This is a traditional style mouth 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.

Features

  • Beer Glass Type: 1 Liter Beer Boot
  • Boot Size: 1 liter or 33 fluid ounces
  • Dimensions: 11 inches high.
  • Made from Machine Blown glass
  • Seam runs from toe to heel of boot

The Mysterious Origins of the Beer Boot
Beer boots are commonly thought to be a German invention. Legend has it in the 1800's, a German general promised his troops he'd drink a beer from his boot should they win an upcoming battle. They did and he carried through with his promise. TrueBeer's researchers have found examples of glass boots dating back to England and in the late 1700's. The early examples of the English boots were surely meant for drinking beer and seem to be designed around a horse ridering boot. Does this mean beer boot are an English invention? Not really. German glassmakers during this time exported a lot of their items to England. These early examples of beer boots found in England were likely produced in Germany for the English market.

Beer boots were popular in Bavaria and called a bierstiefel right through to WWII. These German style boots were plain and lacked any ornament. They were large and typically held 1-5 liters of beer. In the 1940's, beer boots were produced in American for the southwest and western US markets. These boots were shaped like a cowboy's boot and are called Western Beer Boots. They were produced by both of the two major glassware manufacturers Anchor Glass and Libbey. In 2007, the movie BeerFest brought beer boots to the mainstream under the name Das Boot. Since then, beer boots can be found in many German-themed restaurants and pubs. In 2014, beer boots made back on the big screen in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

One Liter Beer Boot
Great boot, customers really enjoy them. Just have to be careful to pour correctly because they hold a lot more than a liter when filled to the top.

Loved this boot
Loved this. Everyone wanted to win this at our annual Oktoberfest party. I had them etched too. One thing, the engraver had a herd time holding this boot in his machine to etch. So, it was crooked. Gave it away anyway! big hit!

Great item, High Quality, Fast Shipping
Great item, as described, carefully packaged, and shipped quickly. Note the seam mentioned in the description. Though it is "Machine Blown" and molded, the seam which runs not only down the front of the boot, but also the back of the boot, is quite distinctive. If you're looking for something more artisinal, with a hand-blown look, this isn't it.

I ordered my one liter beer boot on a Monday night and I received the order exactly 2 days later. The glass is very solid (can't break easily) and it's perfect for beer nights. You got a very satisfied client right here Keep up the good work :)

Great for all guys
My husband bought these as gifts for his groomsmen and they were so great I ended up buying another as a gift for a good guy friend of mine. Basically a fool-proof gift idea for any beer-drinker in your life.

best gift ever
I bought these for my groomsmen. They were excited when they received them. We all like to drink and this just was the cherry on top for us. The craftsman and quality exceeded my expectations. One of the glasses had a chip in it and they replaced it for free and I got to keep the chipped one also. That is awesome customer service. They were shipped to me very fast and packaged very well. I will be a repeat customer as I already made another purchase. Love this site and items. Thanks.

Big boot little toe
Overall a nice product and fun. Great conversational and party piece. Good affordable price. One draw back is that it is not toe doesn't fit the size of the whole boot. You can still get the bubble on unsuspecting novices but not the full effect I was expecting. Overall nice das boot.

Great product!
This product is great! I got one for my husband and two more for his two guy friends for Christmas. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because the boot toe part looks a little small in comparison the whole boot. But the product itself works and is a great conversation piece especially when all three guys drink out of thm together!
