Best Keychain Bottle Opener

Discussion in 'Breweriana' started by JustinH2, Jun 7, 2012.

  1. I had this SN opener on my keychain and it broke as well. Luckily I have a few extras. It may not last forever but it's small and lightweight.

    Is there a good one that doesn't damage the cap by chance, sorry if I overlooked it

    Haha. I think you sent a Harpoon one and the DFH shark. I got the Magic Hat one for free at a beer store in western Virginia (not West Virginia) somewhere. I do appreciate the additions to my collection, though. :)

  8. Bottle openers hurt caps! They are for display purposes only! What did a bottlecap ever do to you? How cruel!

  10. It was keeping it safe from the evil outside world, is all. You don't burn your hat when you take it off, do you? I'm pretty sure every bottlecap is hand painted by children, too.

    I have the same key only Oberon. That opener is fantastic. The flat screwdriver head is perfect for cutting into wax bottles as well. I don't think I will ever replace it

    I have the Corter bottlehook in black. Very sturdy- looks better with age.

    I've had 3 or 4 of that type of opener above and I always manage to catch them on something and pull apart the loop that connects it to the keyring!

    So now my keyring has this on it. Works well.

    Oh and this is amazingly handy for tailgates!!

    Ha. Someone get this and let me know if it messes up caps at all. I'd love to shoot caps right into the tin where I keep them across the room (I'm sure my wife would be THRILLED).

    I have one like this, but I have a bunch of keys. It can oly open bottles if keys/rings aren't in the way. I like the idea of a carabiner opener though.

  24. I am too. I have one from the Guinness brewery with my name on it. One of the most practical gifts I've ever been given.

    Using the same technique, I'll sometimes use one bottle (cap still on) to open another.
  26. It was mentioned on the page back, I just ordered one of the Brewbicle magnetic openers. I don't quite get how it works, but it looks pretty neat.

    My Japanese roomate back in the college days brought me a few of these openers he said were big in Japan (back in 2005) - and I absolutely love them. Have not seen these anywhere but my own kitchen.

    (image found on google, i have a few Sapporo ones at home)

    I am also a big fan of this guy:

  29. Big Rock Brewery (a local brewery) used to give out those as freebies.

    I've been using this guy regularly for quite some time.
  35. I tend to use an old football stud/cleat tightener.

    What else does everybody use apart from a traditional bottle opener?

    Besides a regular bottle opener? In Germany I used a lot of things, but the one that sticks out in my head was a water bottle.

    Besides that, I've used counter tops and anything metal that could wedge off a cap.
