The Edge Of A Table

Now, you probably read that and thought, how would the edge of a table open a beer bottle?

This method is a very good house party trick that you can pull out to impress all your friends.

Who needs a bottle opener when everyone has a table edge that can be used to open your beer bottle?

To open the bottle, you need to position the beer cap so that the underside of the cap is resting on the edge of the table.

Make sure that you are holding the bottle in place as securely as you can with your hand, and then position your other hand so that the bottom of your palm is above the cap.

Very carefully but with force, hit the cap until it flies off. 

You need to make sure that you are holding the bottle in place to prevent the bottle from smashing.

On your first try, it may take you a couple of attempts, but you will soon get the hang of it!

Using A Spoon

Using a spoon to open a beer bottle?! You heard that right!

This works great if you are in desperate need of a cooling taste of beer and cannot seem to find your bottle opener anywhere in your kitchen.

Firstly, you need to grab a big spoon and finally put it to good use!

Position the spoon to face up underneath the bottle cap and then push the handle down so that the spoon is pushing the bottle cap upwards.

Keep pushing upwards until the cap has loosened enough so that you can get it off. Who needs a bottle opener anymore when you have a big spoon?

Use A Belt Buckle

Ever wanted an excuse to show off your big belt buckles? Here is your time to shine!

If you do not have a bottle opener to hand, using a belt buckle can help to loosen a beer cap so you can finally take a sip of your beautiful beer!

Simply position the belt buckle the same way as you would a bottle opener and try to flick the cap off the beer.

It may take you a couple of attempts to fully remove the bottle cap on your first try.

But you should be able to position the belt buckle underneath the cap and then pull back the cap until it comes off the bottle entirely. 

A great use for those jazzy belt buckles that do not get enough attention!

Use Scissors

Now, this method takes some skill and a lot of attention. You need to be super careful that you do not injure yourself using this method.

And if you find yourself struggling, try a different one as you do not want to hurt yourself all for one beer. 

You can use scissors to try and loosen the bottle cap as you can position the scissors so they are attached to one part of the cap.

Begin twisting the scissors in an upwards motion and the bottle cap should begin to loosen. Eventually, the cap should fly off the bottle and you should have access to your beer. 

Make sure that you are extra careful when using sharp scissors and have someone else hold the bottle to make sure that it is held properly in place.

You don’t want to loosen your grip on the bottle and be dealing with broken glass after focusing so much time on twisting off the bottle cap with the scissors. 

Use A Ring

Recently got married and still don’t see the big fuss about marriage? Well, here is a great use for your wedding ring that will make marriage worth it.

All you need is your wedding ring and a little caution for the blazing argument you will probably have if your spouse catches you using your wedding ring for the sole purpose of opening a beer bottle. 

Carefully position the inside of the ring underneath the bottle cap so that the rest of the ring is pointing upwards.

Next, hook your finger through the ring and begin to pull the ring back to you. You should see the bottle cap begin to loosen and peel back to open the beer bottle. 

Once you have finished, quickly put the ring back on and pretend it never happened. We hope that the beer is worth it!

Final Thoughts

To conclude, there are lots of different ways to open a beer bottle if you have misplaced your bottle opener and are in extreme need of a beer.

Lots of the methods are using things that you either wear or that you find in the house, so you do not need to go and buy anything else.

You have everything you need right there! Nothing will get in the way of you and that beer. 

You need to make sure that you are careful when opening the beer bottles as you don’t want the bottles to smash or for you to injure yourself in the process.

We all love a beer or two, but not at the price of your physical health!
