Do you know how to find the best way to meet people [at parties or events]? You just need to shout, "Who can open this?", and then watch the hilarity or awesomeness ensue. And obviously share said beer with [that] person...

If you've previously worked at a bar or restaurant, you'll know just how important a sturdy bottle opener really is. Not to mention, how compact, reliable and strong they can be (as long as you opt for a quality one).

We found slim keychain openers ready to go wherever you do, a bottle opener or two that border on display-worthy works of art, and bottle openers with multiple purposes.

Here we gather a collection of bottle openers for you, to make sure you have something cool on hand to crack open your next beer.
