Well, save yourself some time. There are some really easy ways to open a beer bottle without a beer bottle opener if you take the time to learn.
First and foremost is the countertop. If you have countertop space to spare, you can open a beer bottle real quick with just an easy, well-placed hit. Place the jagged edges of the bottle cap on the counter and hit swiftly with the palm of your hand. You can also ball your hand up into a fist and hit on the side of your hand. You might practice lightly before giving it a good whack. People have been known to hurt themselves.
If you think you might hurt your countertop and you have no intentions of giving it a try, try bottle cap to bottle cap. Simply take two full beers and interlock the bottle caps, then swiftly jerk the one that is facing down. If done right, its bottle cap should stay intact while the one you are holding upright will open. This method is not as swift as the countertop method, but it does look good when done right.
