The Secret to Drinking from a 1 Liter Beer Boot
The secret to drinking from the 1 liter beer 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 movie was released.

Groomsmen Gifts
I bought 4 of these, 3 for my groomsmen and 1 for myself, and was very impressed, the main thing I was worried about was that you would have to drink them fast before the beer warmed up. That was not the case, the glass is thick enough to keep the beer cold. The guys love them, they are an awesome gift idea. Will definitely recommend to anybody.

Beer Boot!!
I ordered boots for all my groomsmen, and the wifey was telling me they were a terrible gift and nobody would like them. Boy was she wrong!! They all loved their boots, and drank out of them during the reception. They are a great gift for anybody, and the quality is great too. I recommend them to everybody!!

This Kicks BOOT!
Bought it for my husband for Christmas and he lit up like a strand of lights. It's the perfect size, fits well into the hand and is super fun to drink from! Not too large to store in the kitchen cabinets. Would recommend!

Excellent quality beer boot
The one litre beer boot arrived from the US to Australia quicker than I expected (about 10 days). It arrived in perfect condition as it had been very carefully bubble wrapped then packed in foam chips in a box. The beer boot is solid, and made of quality thick glass. Provides similar drinking experience to a stein.

Amazing!
I ordered the One Liter Beer Boot the Monday before Christmas and I recieved it that Thursday. It was properly packed with bubble wrap. I am so impressed with this website, and would totally buy from them again. I was just so surprised because im in Canada, but no problem getting through customs!

Amazing Product! Great Customer Service!
This 1L boot is fantastic. It arrived packed in styrofoam peanuts and then double bubble wrapped. After unpacking both my boots, I was instantly impressed with the build quality and sturdiness. And not a bubble or mar in the glass. These things are meant to be used - and can definitely withstand a rowdy night of drinking! Thank you again Truebeer! And a big shout-out to Otto from Customer Service who provided excellent support and made sure they arrived for tomorrow's Oktoberfest party :)

Das Boot!
These boots are by far the best beer glasses we've ever had the pleasure of getting hammered with. They're durable as the glass is very thick. The craftsmenship is outstanding! I suspect they're dishwasher safe, however I don't own one, and baby these glasses any way. They hold a little over 3 beers.I recommend this fine product to any serious beer enthusiasts or fans of Beer Fest or just beer chugging in general. Das Boot!!!
