My husband just uses a lighter to open beer bottles. It's just easier.

I gather he's not allowed to have fancy bottle openers anymore, after he lost the Laguiole?

I did in college. I don't anymore since I'm not an alcoholic. It came in handy when I was 18-24.

It's a method he's used since he was drinking. He always has a lighter in his pocket, so it works for him.

Obviously, at work, they have "real openers."

But, people are amazed at the lighter thing. He doesn't even look down when doing it. He did it at B3D and people were like .

No bottle opener. I have one of those little military-issue can openers though.

Its easier to open with my old truck key than a bottle opener.

They should make bottle openers shaped like Ford F150 keys.

I still have one. I see no reason to take it off as it still comes in handy sometimes and it doesn't really add any weight or bulkiness to my key chain.

I have a pocket knife that also has a match strike, can opener, and bottle opener/flathead screwdriver.
It's small and doesn't make me look like an alcoholic.

Why do you need to carry one around constantly, just in case a wild party suddenly drops at your feet? One without any openers but cases of non-twist top beer bottles?

If you're at somebody's house, there's one somewhere, and there's too many other methods of opening beer bottles to worry about carrying an opener.
