It is best to have the toe pointed sideways while drinking out of any of these beer boots. If the toe is pointing upward while drinking, the beer comes out quickly, spilling out onto the drinker, while the toe pointed downward makes it difficult to drink all toe beer out of the glass.
The German tradition of drinking out of beer boots started with the German army during World War I. It was considered good luck to pass around the boot shaped glass before engaging the enemies in combat. Drinkers would flick the boot for an audible “ting” before and after drinking from it. After World War II, the popularity of these beer glasses spread to American soldiers who stationed in Germany and brought the glasses home as souvenirs.
