Video: How to Open a Beer Bottle with a Piece of Paper

I’ve opened beers with many found objects – my favorite being the bottom of a Bic back when I was a smoker – but this one’s new on me.

The video above shows a rather furry gentleman opening a rather crappy beer with a very ordinary piece of copy paper.  The trick is simple but effective – he folds the paper over six times until he’s holding a small, stiff rectangle with a fairly pointy edge.  After a few go’s at the cap, the top pops open, and he’s able to enjoy his Mexican Dunkel Lager.  Salud!

Keep this in mind the next time you find yourself with a beer and no opener in a hotel room someplace. Those quarterly reports finally have a purpose you can appreciate!

    I feel like there should be monkeys dancing around that bottle after the guy flips the paper into the air, 2001-style.

    Opening beers in hotels is easy if there’s a chest of drawers with a rigid knob. Just center the cap and pop it off like a professional bar would do with a mounted bottle opener.

    Worked for me many times.
