Drink With a Challenge
Boot shaped glass can be a fun way to consume of your favorite beer, but can result in a beer-shower if held improperly. When nearing the end of the glass, be sure to point the toe towards your body to avoid the mess.

What’s With the Boot?
With over a century of history the beer boot glass, or in German “Bierstiefel,” was said to be created when a military leader promised to drink from a boot if successful in battle. Now, it is used by beer connoisseurs all over the world for celebration and jest.
