No opener?

Just a free idea for opening beer when you’ve left your pocket knife at home. No knife (TSA), no keys (why bring them? my car and my home are 4300 miles away). No lighter (you know the lighter trick, right?), and my asthma inhaler was looking like it wasn’t going to open any more bottles lighter-style without bursting. Not really worth the risk.

I bought this Petaluma-brewed Lagunitas in a New York City drugstore, and my boss suggested the door-closing device in our hotel room as an opener. The other boss suggested a super-painful way involving my wedding ring (super-not-recommended).

Beer cap goes over the lower bar of the door-closer, and the top bar acts as the fulcrum. Perfect. I used the trick in the Javits Center, too.
