Bottle of Beer Opener

April 26, 2011

It’s kind of funny how some of the Genius Shortcuts are starting a life of their own. After publishing the lifehack on how to open a bottle of wine without a corksrew, people kept on asking me how to open a bottle of beer without a bottle opener. Do you know how? Of course, most people would use a spoon or a lighter, but what if you are stuck in a hotelroom without any gear?

Would a piece of paper do? Sure, it does! Have a look at this video and see how simple it really is to open a bottle of beer with a piece of paper!

Of course, it’s always a matter of leverage. So, it simply doesn’t matter much what kind of material you are using to open the bottle! Just to be safe : Never open a bottle with your teeth 🙂

Enjoy your beer(s),

Bert
