Something that you’re probably perfected by now but just in case you need to brush up on this very important skill of learning how to open up a beer bottle. Here is how to open up a bottle without the benefit of an opener which is something to aspire to.
You can use this trick at a party, braai or game day either to impress your friends, a lady friend or everyone you know. Ideally without chipping your teeth, there are many ways to open a bottle, such as household appliances to street furniture but there is one way to pry off a beer cap quickly, easy and requires no doing.
All you need is two beer bottles and you’re set, here is a step by step guide as to what to do.
- Hold a bottle in each hand (if you weren’t already), if you’re right- handed, the bottle in your left hand must be upright. Do reverse this if you’re left-handed.
- With your fingers around the beer’s neck, place your index finger just below and a few centimetres away from the bottle top, as if you are pointing at someone in front of you.
- Place the bottle in your right hand, top facing down, between your index finger and thumb. Tuck the bottle cap under the edge of the left-hand bottle cap, using it as a fulcrum to pop the cap off.
- Whilst keeping you left elbow tucked tightly into your side, bring down the right-hand bottle in one smooth movement to pop the cap of the left bottle.
And voila, take a sip with a satisfied smile on your face, while those around you nod or smile in awe of your party trick.
