A high-quality bottle opener is the beer aficionado’s best friend. And yet, it can be tough to find one that is as badass as it is functional. Whether you’re looking for something to complete your home bar or you never want to find yourself away from home with an un-openable beer again, our list of ten of the coolest bottle openers is sure to help you find the perfect tool for the job.
Black Dinosaur Bottle Opener
Go prehistoric on all your favorite beers with this cast iron dinosaur bottle opener. This t-rex is so well-sculpted it can double as décor when not in use, and watching it tear bottle caps off with its powerful jaws never gets old.
Cap Zappa Bottle Opener
It seems such a waste to toss bottle caps in the trash after you’ve opened your brew, especially when you could be using them as projectiles to launch at your unsuspecting friends. Once you’ve got your bottle open, just press the button and watch your cap fly across the room.
Yeti Brick Bottle Opener
This three-quarter-pound beast is known simply as the Brick. Made of cast stainless steel, this baby feels satisfyingly solid in even the burliest of hands and it performs its cap-popping duties flawlessly.

Designed to attach seamlessly to a key ring, the Utili-Key includes both straight and serrated knife blades, a flathead screwdriver, a Phillips head screwdriver, and a micro-sized screwdriver in addition to its bottle opener.
Road Popper Bottle Opener
While we can’t rightly condone drinking and cycling, if you’re a guy who travels primarily via bike, the Road Popper still comes in handy. Made with bronze-infused stainless steel, the Road Popper mounts below your bike saddle and lets you crack open your favorite bottled beverages on the go. And if you’re stopping and staying a while at your destination, you just might be able to enjoy a brewski or two as well.
Coaster Bottle Opener
Talk about a match made in heaven. A bottle opener seems so at-home on the bottom of a coaster that it’s a wonder it’s not standard fare. This set of coasters from Brooklyn BrewShop is made of gorgeous Maple, with a bottle opener cleverly nestled on the bottom of each one.

Gothic Dragon Bottle Opener
Honestly, who wouldn’t want their man cave to look like a medieval lair? This cast-iron dragon head mounts to the wall, his maw perpetually waiting to rip the top off your next cool brew.
