German beer boots have over a century of history and have quickly become a staple of beer culture. While the beer boot’s exact origins vary, the most popular theory involves a German general who promised to drink from his boot if his troops won an upcoming battle. After the surprise victory, the general had a glass boot made just for him so he could drink without the obvious hygiene concerns. The idea caught and the beer boot was born.
Beer boots feature just as much art and tradition as the beer stein. They are made with pressed glass or are mouth blown by experienced artisans. If you have any questions about engraved beer boots or need assistance finding a product, contact us. We are happy to help.
