Getting confused by craft beer? You’ve just finished a hard day at work, and you’re just itching to decapititate that smug aluminium capped glass soldier and feast on it’s yeasty gizzards. But you can’t tell if it’s a “twist-top”, or “pop-top”, or both? Bottlemate is the Bottle opener is for you. Developed in Newcastle by the same mad genius engineer that brought you the snowboard ratchet inspired Clickerbelt. Quoted as “probably the best bottle opener in the world’ by multiple sources, this Japanese inspired universal bottle top opener has taken the world by storm.

Now let’s say you’ve just picked up a $50 six-pack of Cheeky Knees Jolly Goblin Organic Hoppapotamus Turkish Pale Ale and you need to open it. This is where Bottlemate excels. Within a second, your beer is open, and now you’re drinking beer. That went well. Now you can start to drown the tiny voices of descent inside your head.
Not convinced, you can get custom logos printed on the Bottlemate.
I enjoyed my BottleMate so much, I got a custom logo of a Bottlemate printed onto another BottleMate, and then onto another BottleMate.
From the BottleMate website:
BottleMate is the coolest bottle opener you will ever see! It opens all types of crown and screw bottle tops quickly and with ease. It makes opening bottles fun! Finally the Sentol Japanese Bottle Opener has arrived in Australia. Originally invented in 1981, this was the original the BottleMate is based off of. Sentol means ‘take off cap’ in Japanese, and when you push, click and pop with your BottleMate, you’ll understand why! Its ingenious design is so simple and has a massive “Wow Factor”! One quick push and the bottle top is gone! The inbuilt magnet even captures the bottle top for you. Thrilling Japanese audiences for over thirty years, this is the perfect thing to draw a crowd at a party with. The Sentol family of bottle openers truly are the gift that keeps on giving.
