30 yrs ago every hotel room had a bottle opener bolted to the door or wall somewhere. Haven't seen this in a long time. Now, I'm sure the maintenance staff wonders how the edges of furniture, kitchenette counters, lamps, etc. are getting nicked. Duh.

I'm in St. Louis having a Schlafly Pale Ale. Nice. I wonder what hops they use in this, doesn't taste like cascade. Slight peachiness there.

So what did you use to open your beer?

Yeah, I've noticed the lack of bolted down openers.

I can get my car key to work.

I always carry either a bottle opener, or a Bic lighter, just for such an occasion.

You obviously don't fly much, neither are allowed on a plane.

Closet rack had a metal hook on it. Bam, worked twice perfectly. I can't bring myself to ding furniture (any more; I have in the past)

I broke a bottle doing that once. It does fit in there pretty nicely.

I used to be pretty good with the disposable lighter. Back when I smoked.
