Default What is your Favorite Bottle Opener?

The first thing I installed in my house was a vintage wall mounted cast iron Coke bottle opener on my kitchen wall. I had to go to the local swap meet to find one. It is a tradition in my family to have one. My parents, grandparents and great grandparents all had one on their kitchen wall.

What do you like to use? Where do you keep it?

I just have a generic plain bottle opener. Where do I keep it? Usually some place where I cant find it.

Well, I have to admit I do keep a church key (Can opener and bottle opener combo w/ magnet in middle) stuck on the refrigerator in case I need a mobile unit.

I seem to have the same problem and end up using the end of my can-opener. A personalized bottle opener is one of the things i have in mind in the future when I have a garage/shop outfitted as personal brewery/bar.

I've got a Homer Simpson bottle opener and my sister-in-law just got me one that plays the Chicago Bears fight song. Dude, I know you want it!
