There are a lot of things worth knowing about beer other than what bottles require an opener, how to consume the largest quantity possible and the intricacies of the beer pong rules. You don’t need to know about the relationship of hops to barley that’s used to create the world’s third most popular drink (it’s fun to learn anyway), but there’s more to it than just drinking it. The Book of Beer Awesomeness: A Champion’s Guide to Party Skills, Amazing Beer Activities and More Than Forty Drinking Games has a ridiculously long title, but it addresses a lot of cool things about beer. Three whole chapters are dedicated to various drinking games related to memory, strategy and skill (all three of which seem pretty difficult when considered in the context of drinking games), but there’s also a primer on brewing, various beer receptacles and beeraphernalia that might be of interest to you.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
