How To | Open a beer without an opener

We asked Mike Beder, owner of Water Street Tavern in Kent, to teach us the best way to open a beer without an opener. Here’s his advice.

1] Find a standard plastic Bic lighter. If you don’t smoke, someone drinking with you probably does.

2] Flip the lighter upside down and put the plastic end under the cap. Create a wedge. Keep your thumb on the beer cap.

3] Push up while working the wedge back and forth. You will hear the release of air. Keep working it.

4] The cap will pop off when it is bent nearly in half.
