    It isn't exactly a new concept. The Portaflex is almost 50 yo.

    I got back from the beach yesterday and went up to my jam room. One thing I noticed was bottle openers EVERYWHERE. :D

    Hahaha! I mounted a bottle opener just like that on my Eden 410XLT back in the 90s!

    Good craft beer comes in cans these days, but I suppose one of those can crushers would just look trashy. :bored:
     
  13. I will pass on the bottle opener on the side, probably tear my leg open with it. Beside, beer makes me pee too often ...However, a good wine corkscrew kept in your gig bag is a very good idea.

    I don't need no stinkin' tools to open a bottle of good tequila. Problem solved.

    This is funny in Germany. Over here, twist off bottle caps are unheard of, but no self respecting German man would use a bottle opener. They have 10,000 ways of opening beer bottles without one.

    And cans? That’s almost as funny to them as Coors Light.
     
  16. I guess you had to be there.

  17. A bottle opener on your amp sends the message that it's probably OK to sit your beer on it.

    :roflmao:.

    To be fair, though, the reason many American craft brewers have recently switched to cans isn't because they don't know better; it's because beer-can technology has changed such that the same beer should taste exactly the same from a bottle or from one of these new cans. Given that, there are a lot of advantages to cans over bottles.
