Patio Beer Opener


Let the record show-I hate beer. But I do like having people over on the patio, and many of the people I like, like beer. Snobby beer, with caps that have to be removed with tools, rather than just screw caps, or cans. Canned beer is what we give to the slugs.
Last summer, we stayed at a hotel that had a bottle opener screwed to the bathroom counter. I know, classy. It was in Wyoming. Anyway, I saw that, and thought, ooh, I want that for my house.

Except, you know, not in the bathroom. On the patio.

So, I checked the local hardware store, which didn’t carry them, so then I ordered one from Amazon and I mounted it to one of the porch posts, then I’ll mount a bucket underneath. Come on over.

    Our outdoor bottle opener is a magnetic church key from the Mote Marine Lab in Florida. I convinced my then 7 year old that it would be the perfect momento to remember our vacation and indeed it is. It lives on the fuse box attached to the outside of the house. A terrific addition to our outdoor decor which is equal parts “mid-century redneck” and “rustic log villa”. But don’t worry when you come over I won’t make you drink beer. I’ll serve you my very best box wine. ๐Ÿ˜‰
