Beer Boot Set of Six Boots

This is a case of six traditional European (German) pressed glass drinking boots. These popular boots are 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.

  • Beer Glass Type: German Beer Boots
  • Boot Size: 1 liter or 33 fluid ounces
  • Dimensions: 10-1/2 inches high.
  • Made in Austria
  • Set of (6) individual boots.
More about 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.

Beer Boot Set
I purchased the glasses for my niece's husband who happens to brew his own beer has three taps and likes to have his friends over for "tastings". He as well as his friends love the boots. As for myself I've yet to test them out, but will be doing so in the very near future. What I can also say is that I was very impressed with the quality/craftsmanship. That alone encourages me to purchase a boot for personal use. Overall extremely satisfied with the shopping experience

Ended well
The product was awesome and as described. The groomsmen loved them. They are pretty heavy and quality is great. They took almost a month to get here. The 1-2day est. shipping was a little misleading. I stayed in contact with truebeer and they ensured I got them on time. End the end I was happy, just a little stressful wondering when and if they would arrive in time. Order early if you have a deadline. Thanks. I WOULD order again.

Good buy
I was very pleased with the quality of these glasses. They came well packed and were not damaged even though the box looked like it had been dropped during shipment.

don't think about it, get it!
I got the 1 liter boot for my groomsman and one for myself and everyone loved them. the size is perfect for a friendly competition or just having your nightly beer after work. you can casually drink 3 beers before you know it. very well made, thick glass and sturdy. am glad i got the pressed glass because they got some abuse drinking with the guys and they held up great. will buy from true beer again.
