Need a beer? No can opener? No problem! Here are 11 ways to open up an ice cold beer without the use of a traditional bottle opener.
1) Use a knife
2) Pry the tab with your fingernails
3) Remove the cap and place it over the neck of another bottle, then twist off
This article is going to tell you how to open up a beer without an opener when all your other bottle opening methods are out of the question. The first thing that might come into mind is using a knife, but this can result in sliced fingers and sharp edges on the cap which could lead to injury. One solution is peeling off the tab with your fingernails or teeth. Another way around opening a beer without an opener would be taking apart two bottles so one fits over another like puzzle pieces, then twisting them back together again until they snap off from each other
This method poses some risk as it involves breaking glass, and also requires both hands which means uncomfortably holding onto two bottles for long periods of time
The easiest way to open a beer without an opener is with another household item. Great tools for the job include:
a) A tin can lid or other metal object
b) A piece of paper that has been folded in half, and then into quarters so it resembles a “V” shape
c) Plastic wrap which is often found in kitchen cupboards
d) Aluminum foil – this one should be self explanatory as everyone knows what aluminum foil does! One final note on using alternatives; make sure you’re not using anything like glass from your windowsill (unless tempered), any type of plastic food container, or disposable cutlery as these could all lead to injury if they were used incorrectly. If none of the above options work to pop that beer, try calling a friend over for help!
If all else fails, don’t fret because the beer can still be opened with a lot of patience and the help from a friend. And it’s not just limited to using your fingers: there are plenty of household items that will get you one step closer to quenching your thirst!
You’ll need a sharp knife to start. Once you’ve found your blade, cut the aluminum can along two opposite sides of the top and bottom ridges.
Next, make a small incision on one side about an inch down from where you initially started cutting – this is going to be your “hinge”. The next step is to create another horizontal incision at the end of that first vertical line which will now act as both hinges for your beer’s lid. Now simply fold back each half and use pressure with just enough force until it pops open!
If you want to be extra cautious and don’t have any knives or sharp objects around, simply perform the first part of this method with your fingers. Simply pry up from one side a little bit at time until it’s loose enough for you to pop either half off.
You can also use a fork or spoon as an alternative beer opener! The next step is simple: find where the tines meet together on the inside of the utensil (usually towards the base) and poke them into two opposite sides of your aluminum can about halfway down its length. Next, twist in opposite directions – just like how we opened our bottle of wine last week! Keep doing that motion until both halves open right up.
Use a pair of tin snips or scissors to open beer can. Done!
This method requires only two household items: one that is sharp and will cut through the aluminum, such as a kitchen knife, and another item you’re willing to sacrifice for this purpose.
First, use your sharp object to score around both sides of the top (the part with the tab) just below where it meets with the rest of the can. You should have scored an inch long line on either side when finished, making sure not to go all the way down so we don’t puncture it yet. Next up – carefully fold inwards these lines until they meet together at right angles without going any further than necessary; some cans might
In a pinch, you can open beer cans with just about anything. But not all of these methods are quite as easy-to-use or successful as others. Here are 11 ways to open beer without an opener:
11 Methods for Opening Beer Without An Opener
• Using another household item such as a screwdriver or butter knife
• Breaking the tab off using your teeth and fingernails (slowly) so that it falls into the can’s hole
• Removing the top lip from a soda bottle by stabbing through it with something sharp like scissors and twisting until you hear cracking sounds then pulling outwards on what remains of bottle’s body where metal bottom attached once was
• Striking the top of the can against a hard surface like concrete or asphalt to puncture it so beer will pour out
• Using an ice pick, screwdriver, nail file (or something in that range) to poke small holes around the top edge then using your thumb and index finger to pull apart until you hear cracking sounds. You’ll want to work quickly before opening gets too wide
• Putting the can on its side and hitting it with a hammer until you see cracks forming – this one is not for those who are faint-of-heart!
• Holding a lighter under one end of can while turning the other end counterclockwise over hot flame—this takes skill but does get results without any sharp objects involved
• Placing the can on a barbecue and turning it to high heat for about 20-30 seconds—watch out for sparks!
• Using pliers to twist off tabs or entire top piece of tab, then using your hands only to remove the rest of the beer. This method is time consuming but will work as long as you have pliers
• Putting an opener blade against one side of the top edge in order to pull open from that end—if both ends are equally sharp this may work better than trying to pry them apart with a flathead screwdriver (though that will still do)
• Cutting down through the center of the can with scissors – be careful not to cut too deep so you don’t puncture any of the beer
