Bears, bombs, and gargoyles: wall-mounted bottle openers bite back #Shopping#alcohol#homebrew March 8 2013 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin While looking for a stainless steel wall-mounted bottle opener to gift my father, I stumbled upon some truly awesome wall-mounted bottle opener options that range from wonderous to WTF. I mean, who doesn't want their own tiny bear to open their beers for them with its bare (bear!) teeth? A beer bear? No one, that's who doesn't want that. Aside from beer bears, there's also beer gargoyles, bottle openers that make politcal statements, and even magnetic fridge-mounted bottle openers that I want to show y'all. SO crack open one a cold one, and make sure to click on any of the ones you're interested in to learn more… Perhaps you'd like THIS version of a beer bear better? Get gothic with your wall-mounted bottle opener! Never has a gargoyle been so useful in my life. Serious Celtic Greenman bottle opener is serious. Celebrate your home brew skillz with this "home brewed" bottle opener. Put these big buck bunny teeth to work! The Beers Not Bombs wall-mounted bottle opener is cast from disarmed nuclear weapon systems. For those of you who want a wall-mounted bottle opener, but don't want to damage you wall, this magnetic bottle opener has all the convenience of a wall-mounted opener, without the installation. It also comes in other colors. Okay, so now that I'm on this wall-mounted bottle opener kick… do YOU have one? Is it awesome? What is it? Is it a bear?

It is actually no longer wall mounted as we keep moving house and hardly ever get around to putting it back up. But wall mounted or hand-held it is super easy to use (and good for me with crazily hypermobile and arthritic fingers – in case that's helpful to anyone). Everyone always love it at parties. 1 agrees Reply We have the first bear! I put it in dude's stocking at Christmas – he's mounted a little too high for me to use him easily, which we will fix after the kitchen gets repainted. Reply I love the "Beers not Bombs" one. Might have to get that. I also love the homebrew opener because we're just getting into home brewing and I want to brag about it all the time. 1 agrees Reply I have this one that i found at Ross – magic! http://www.shelterrific.com/2008/11/13/product-i-love-tovolo-splash-magnetic-bottle-opener Reply They aren't wall mounted, but I have a whole series of bottle openers shaped like skeleton keys. They make me feel fancy. 2 agree Reply Can someone explain how to open beer without spilling it EVERYWHERE? Maybe I'm just extra useless, but we have that bottom one pictured stuck to our fridge and I. Just. Can't 🙁 Reply I always use a handheld opener so I can set the bottle on the counter and not slosh for this reason. Maybe slower more controlled movement? Reply Yeah, it's all about the angle and the slow movement. Reply oooOOOOoooo! now I have to decide between the gargoyle, Greenman, and OMG beers not bombs for a housewarming gift. this may be harder than naming my children… Reply Lemme know which one you ultimately choose! Reply I've had my eye on that Greenman one for a while. Reply I have the last one, and though it's not as pretty as the others, that magnet is strong-hasn't come off the fridge once! Reply We have that first beer bear too! Mounted on a piece of wood that says 'the best beer is an open beer'. It's punnier here because beer is Dutch for bear.
