|Secrets Revealed by Mr. Brewski
So you want to know some of my secrets about beer? I'll let
you in a few as long as you promise not to tell anyone.
Paper Bottle Opener
Fold a sheet of paper in half vertically four times, then once
lengthwise to create a long and thick V-shaped piece.
Compress and wedge the folded paper under the bottle cap
with one hand while gripping the top of the neck with the
other (the paper should rest between your index finger and
the cap). Then pop the bottle open with one sharp maneuver.
Wrap a dampened paper towel around the body of a beer
bottle. Then, place the wrapped bottle in the freezer for 15
minutes or so. 15 minutes or so later and you'll have an ice
cold brew in your hands!
If you need to chill multiple bottles at once, toss them into a
small tub along with ice and water. Next add salt--yes,
salt--to the tub, which will lower the water's freezing point
and leave you with significantly colder beers!
Cool a Pitcher
A genius way to ensure your pitcher of beer stays nice and
cool is to fill a plain cup with ice, then gently place it into the
pitcher--the cup will stay afloat while the ice inside will keep
the pitcher's temperature down!.
