Beer Boot History
The beer boot, or “bierstiefel” in German, dates back well before “Beerfest” came out. Anthropologists studying Germanic tribes have found versions of the bierstiefel older than the Roman Empire. Some believe tribesmen would drink from these during celebration.
Trying to down a beer boot in one mighty swig dates back to the 1800’s. A Prussian general lost a bet with his soldiers—as a result, he had to drink an entire beer from a boot. Wanting to avoid nasty sweaty boot flavored beer, the general commissioned a local glass blower to make him a boot shaped glass. The tradition has carried on ever since.
Beating the Beer Boot Air Bubble
Show your friends you’re boss by drinking thirty-two ounces of beer in one gulp. Whether you’re passing the boot around or trying to put your friends in their place, Das Boot is a timeless drinking game. Be careful, the uninitiated are likely to end up drenched in beer.
Das Boot might seem like a worthy adversary but can be defeated with a simple trick. Air builds up in the toe of the boot, eventually splashing beer everywhere. Turn the toe outward to prevent a bubble from ever forming, and drink like a champion.
