Once in a while I’ll search the web for new information and I stumbled upon a photo of boot-shaped glass named as a german beer boot. The Beer Boot is a uniquely German invention. In Deutschland they are called Bierstiefel and these boots are popular with tourists in Bavaria and Munich in particular. Beer boots became increasingly popular after being featured in the last beer drinking contest in the movie BeerFest. Since then, beer boots are popular on college campuses throughout the USA. More beer boots are importing and sold in the USA than in Europe and some of the glasswerks have trouble satisfying the American demand.
Do you own one? I think I couldn’t own one because I don’t drink beer . Isn’t it great to learn one new thing everyday? I think once in a while I will share with you what I have learned. Posting them here helps me keeping track of what I’ve learned so far.
