Don't count the usual tools that are meant to open a long neck. I've seen the lighter thing and I learned how to open a beer with another beer, which is great til you get down to the last one. What then? What's the best you've seen. Sherm

I generally just bite off the neck, nothing fancy it's just me.

I couldn't find a bottle opener last night and had to use a pair of pliers. They weren't even needle-nosed. I don't recomend this method.

1) Let beer warm to room temperature. 2) Shake well. 3) Load mag with Winchester Q3131A (from Eric) 4) You figure the rest... DO NOT DO THIS WITH GUINNESS!! USE AMERICAN "BEER" ONLY!!

Place bottle cap on counter top and pull bottle downward. Some belt buckles also work well. Counter top and doors are best used in motel rooms.

I have observed Aggies use their class ring while on the finger, others use the skin under the forearm (just push up and twist) and for the bold, your eye socket. Press to eye, squint forcefuly, and twist!! BTW, I have never done the last one.

Yeah that's what I do. railings on porches or balconies are a good place to do that. And smack the bottlecap with the palm of your hand.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, my wife will use her teeth. (only on the beer!)

(Bottles only) Sneak up behind somebody you REALLY don't like AND are sure that you can outfight or outrun, place the edge of the bottle cap against his scalp, and give the bottle a good whack in the appropriate direction. Do it fast enough and no blood will contaminate the beer. Extra points if the bottle cap remains imbedded in the guy's scalp for more than ten seconds. [dracula] Pretty evil, I know! If you have to fight him and he loses, use his teeth to open the after-fight bottle. Keep any gold fillings that get dislodged in the process. You won them fair and square. For cans, shake the holy hell out of a warm one, spread some peanut butter all over it, and toss it in the back seat of your local police officer/deputy's K9 unit as as treat for the dog. Dogs LOVE peanut butter, you see, and those sharp teeth on a pressurized beer can are certain to result in an amusing little episode. Don't get caught! This can also be used with ANY neighbor's dog.

Funny thing Tayous1, she was born in Kalifornia, raised in the Norwegian stronghold of Minnesota, and loves Texas. Should I be scared?

The brass utlity belt buckel that is issued by the USMC makes a very good bottle opener.

I always use a dime in a pinch. Just stick it under the cap and start prying. It takes a few extra seconds but I almost always have a dime in my pocket.

I think Lord Trader revealed the most 'creative' method yet. It was on his 'posting without posting' threads, and may still be in effect.

I am a pro at "biting" them off. My friends think I'm insane but yet, they keep handing me their beers to see me do it. Of course, for those of you that can actually shoot...[flame] You simply place the bottle on the ground at 100 yds, angled away from you at 30 degrees, and shoot the cap off with a .22.[;D]

My friend works at a bar in Manhattan and told me the same story. But his involves enough money being thrown on the bar to encourage the bartender to do it with his eye socket. My friend says he has to get stitches afterwords.??? I'd like to see that one. Sherm

Same here. Don't like doing it for more than a six pack or or so, or my gums start bleeding LOL.

I found that the hinge on the rear hatch of my Cherokee is perfect for opening bottles. There's a little tab in the center of the hinge that works like the old wall mounted coke bottle openers. Perfect every time. I'm betting the new fugly Liberties don't have this option.....

Carabiner. Open gate, use slot in gate to pry cap off. Cuss when you break top of bottle off instead. /rl - also uses keychain maglite to do the lighter trick.

I've used the end of my (closed) Spyderco.
Link Posted: 1/30/2002 7:28:04 AM EDT
OK, so I use a old fashioned beer can opener here, but wait, lay yer brew on its side with the tab facing up, open at the bottom side of the can directly under the tab, place mouth over opening and plug with yer tongue, tip can up and open the tab!!!
Link Posted: 1/30/2002 7:34:33 AM EDT
In motels, I use the little metal plate the bathroom door latch slides into. Last resort is to pry cap off with house key. BTW, the term "aggie", used above, is no longer considered politically correct. The preferred term is "Agri-American".

The obvious answer is with a bottle opener.....the one on the gas block of a Galil ARM! Yes, that's what its there for! Just don't use mine, you'll scratch it!

I used an ice pick once to open a beer can - this was before they had the pop tops and you actually needed an opener.

Chevy used to advertise that the rear door hinges on a Suburban were designed to open bottles. I usually have handy my swiss army knife (the Tinker model, oddly enough) which will open bottles or cans.
Link Posted: 1/30/2002 9:01:09 AM EDT
Det Cord. Does shake up the beer a bit, though.
Link Posted: 1/30/2002 9:03:55 AM EDT
I pride myself on being able to open a non-twistoff bottle with any peice of metal 2" or longer. I've opened bottles with: knives, lighters, any kind of handtool, brackets, numerous car parts, pieces of scrap metal, keys, pistols and my favorite while I'm driving - seat belts. It's all about leverage. Most of the time I get the cap to pop off on the first try.

If I want to open a bottle with my teeth which teeth do I use? Is this all molar effort or is there some leverage involved? Sherm

I once saw a girl on the internet open a beer bottle with her....umm, thing( I can't think of a good word for it right now) it was a twist top though, still interesting and strangly arousing I have got to stop looking at porn sites
Link Posted: 3/30/2002 4:59:10 PM EDT
Now kids please don't try this one at home and remember to wear safety glasses if someone does. I had a friend in college who used to make lots of money on bets that he could open a tall neck bottle with a golf club and he would take a full swing and probably 9 out of ten times he'd get it on the first swing. Never saw him hit one fat though thank god, the shrapnel would have to be deadly.

Guy walks into a whore house and tells the madame, I want the meanest, toughest whore you got. Madame says, you want Zelda. Go up stairs, first door on the right, I'll send her up in a minute. Half way up the stairs the guy says, have her bring a couple bottles of beer with her. No problem. The john is in bed and Zelda walks in, sets beers on night stand, turns around, hikes up dress, bends over. Guy says, get in bed and do it the regular way. Zelda says, OK, I just thought you might wanna open them beers first. hahahahahaha

I used to use my teeth. There's kind of a trick to it so you don't hurt your teeth too bad. I can't do it anymore though. Just forgot how, and I don't feel like practicing.

Belt buckle, BIC lighter, a quarter, another beer, wrench, paint scraper (I used to be a painter), cellphone, edge of a tabletop, car keys, 7.92*57 cartridge, teeth (gave that up 20 years ago: you use your lower front teeth and pry upwards), self-made multiple use dagger, .... My grandfather was able to open a beerbottle with an egg :)

Simply put, I have a female stripper open it for me. If I happen to shake it up first and she gets all wet, "Who's the victim?"

OK, I've heard a few of you guys talking about opening them with a Bic lighter. I want to learn how to do this and I've never heard of it. Can you give details? For twist-offs, I just open with my hand of underside of forearm. Non-twisting ones, I generally mangle the cap with my SOG Paratool can opener.
