‘Brew Cutlery’ Beer Nerd Utensils Come with Built-In Bottle Openers

brewcutlery1

Turns out, yes, there is a multifunctional utensil that’s even more ingenious than the spork.

From San Diego inventors Kevin Newburg and Stephen Grinalds comes Brew Cutlery, a set of stainless steel forks, spoons, and knives designed with bottle opener hinges built right into the handles. Simple and entirely gastropub-friendly, the utensils have been spot-tested on “thousands” of beers to provide maximum leverage, and should be available for sale by June 2014, pending a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Of course, with 36 days to go and less than $3,000 away from their pledge goal, we’re pretty sure we’ll be seeing these at Ikea in no time.

Men’s Button-Ups Designed for Opening Twist-Off Beers

So you’re at a party and your coordination’s a little . . . off. Your normally work-beaten hands are suddenly weak and clammy and no matter how much you scrunch your face, you just can’t . . . seem  . . . to open . . .  this damn . . . beer bottle. Normally you’d have to concede, ask someone else to open it, or pretend you didn’t even really want beer in the first place. But now, there’s a shirt for that.

The folks at bougie men’s clothing company Criquet have designed a whole line of shirts meant to get you through the toughest of times, with a reinforced shirt lining that prevents you from completely trashing the fabric of your button-up whilst twisting open beer bottles. Not typically newsworthy, except that they advertise it as being the perfect twist top-opener. Sure, we’d much prefer shirts with actual built-in bottle openers (perhaps built into the button lining, though whoever can work one into a clubbing dress would be a godsend), but at least Criquet’s hearts are in the right place.
