The idea of drinking from a boot (das boot) has over a century of history and culture. The legend says that general promised that he will drink beer from his boot if soldiers were successful in battle. When they won the general drunk the beer from a glass made in a shape of boot (instead of his own smelly leather boots). Since than it became tradition to drink from beer boot glasses. It is well known glass in Germany, Austria and Switzerland during festive drinking challenges.

It is an old trick to hand the boot to a novice drinker with the toe pointing away from him, which will result in beer pouring over the drinker’s face uncontrollably when air enters the toe. Seasoned drinkers always point the toe towards their body until the glass is sufficiently drained.
