1. Hold beer bottle vertically in one hand with only the edge of the cap resting on the sharp edge of a work bench.
2. Use the other hand to swiftly hit the top of the beer bottle in a downward motion.
3. Drink beer.
4. Repeat as necessary.

Where was this thread on the 4th weekend when I got stuck using water neck pliers on my Coronas? I wasted an extra 5 seconds compared to some of these suggestions!

I've done it with a bic lighter on the side of a bottle of beer before
now a days most of what I drink is either in cans,or twist off tops.

I bought a Snap On opener on Ebay for a gift. When it came it had the Snap On logo but it said "Made in Sweden" WTF? Now I'm thinking, maybe it was made by Bahco?

Yup, that's the way I do it too.

Shop only, though... do not try on the wife's kitchen counter.

What does that say about professional painters
Or painting in general


I've noticed the alcohol of choice for painters isn't beer - it's vodka. We used to give one of the better ones a bottle of Grey Goose for Christmas every year. Another guy used to like his liquid lunch and then get on a scissor lift 15 or 20 feet in the air spraying dryfall without a mask of any kind - interesting guy to say the least.

Don't forget drywall tools. I've seen a few rasps and multi tools with built in bottle openers.

A lighter is pretty good.
Once again, don't use teeths.
And drink drink responsibly.
