What’s that? You’re still using the plastic key chain opener you bought at the university book store freshman year? Time to upgrade — and show that IPA who’s boss. Forged from solid bronze, the Beer Peen Hammer provides the leverage needed to peel the cap on a craft brew or a belligerent fellow partier. It’s patterned after an antique ball peen hammer they stumbled on at an estate sale and features a black oxidized finish that gradually reveals the metal beneath with time and wear. Additional details include a leather lace tie for hanging the BPH when it isn’t being actively wielded, and a custom-made waxed canvas tool bag as packaging. It’ll look as good hanging on your kitchen wall as it will opening that post-work chocolate stout, but if you want to be the Thor of bottled beer, you’ll have to act fast — the first run of the Beer Peen Hammer is limited to just 250 units.
