    Beat this accessory

    This is the ultimate accessory. I am sorry I didn't have any Obsidian Stout for the first use.

    Well maybe not, but if you deserve the good beer you can crack it without a schmancy gizmo.

    It needs an anti-vibrational inertial-dampening beerholder to go with it.
    That'd be good for on the riding mower too. The cupholder I have on there
    can shake a beer into foam faster than i can.

    You know you can use old quill stems as bottle openers. A while ago I saw some video of the TDF where people , mid ride, would take out bottles from their food sacks and tap the caps on the stem bolt. Well I tried it and it works really well! I can't find the video though

    That's badass, but I have too many bottle openers. My Chrome bag has one, my multi tool has one, my Pedro's Trixie has one, and my bike counts as one.

    In case you all didn't know it...if you ain't got an opener and can't crack it with you teeth like a manly man, SPD pedals have been known to open bottles.

    Santa Cruz puts 'em on the derailleur hanger, and Salsa does it off the seatpost clamp. A lot more practical, IMO.

    While Fat Tire comes in cans, it's about 3x better out of the bottle.

    Personally, I prefer to keep my bike and beer separate -- they get jealous of each other.

    My bike gets jealous if it sees me drink a beer and we're not riding.

    Going way off topic here:

    Yes they do have good beer in cans: most of the Fuller's line is in cans now, Hobgobblin, Young's Double Chocolate Stout, Dales Pale Ale and Old Chub (as well as the rest of the Oskar Blues Line). Micro Canning is the hot new thing in microbrews.

    incorrect...once it gets put in a can, it is no longer good beer...even if it was good going in.
    Plus drinking beer from cans is so....uncivilized. I'm afraid I'll faint dead away even contemplating such a horror. I hate you neanderthals...but not as much as I hate orcs.

    Oh geez! You don't drink it from the can, just store it and ship it, much like a very very small keg (which is just a big ass can.) Drinking from bottles is just as bad as drinking from cans. Cans do a much better job of protecting the wonderful malty nectar than bottles do, as they completely block out light, which is the major cause of skunky beer.

    The real problem with cans and beer in particular has nothing to do with the package itself. Both glass and metal are completely impervious to oxygen, the major cause of beer spoilage, and the amber glass used in beer bottles blocks 90 someodd percent of the damaging light.

    Cans come out ahead in two regards, they don't shatter of you drop them, and they don't require an awesome bike accessory to open.

    The one real disadvantage to cans though is cost. The equipment needed to package you product in an aluminium can is orders of magnitude more expensive than the bottling equipment. This has typically meant that only companies with more capital (Budweiser and the like) have been able to afford the canning operation, and more highly thought of microbreweries stick with bottles, cause they work just as well, but cost less. You can see how this dichotomy led to the perception that canned beers are somehow inferior to bottled beer, but it's simply correlation, not causation.

    and anyway, drinking beer from either a bottle or a can is blasphemous, beer deserves it's own glass.

    I don't mind a boddingtons out of the can from time to time.

    That gizmo in that orientation makes my knee hurt. I know it's not THAT likely if you've a long enough top tube, but it still scares me.

    Ah, come on! The post was about a bottle opener. Some discussion about the proper type of bottles is necessary (or more accurately, what those bottles contain)....followed of course by whether bottles (and hence the bottle opener) and even required (in this case, are there options available that would provide satisfactory performance that don't require such a device.)

    My vote: not a necessity, but useful for maintaining optimum compatibility with locally sourced materials.
