We drink...why? Usually to take the edge off, or, in some cases, to fall entirely off the edge and end up with a broken iPhone screen. But before we reach the edge, we're often bored during the "pre-drunk" stage of drinking and watching Law & Order on mute. Now, though, Owen & Fred, the dudes who brought us the Cigar Box Speakers, have released the You Earned It Bottle Openerto give us that validating feeling that we all deserve after (or before) a long work day. Get cracking.
Weighing in at a hefty half-pound, this thing isn't just a bottle opener—it's a monument to the importance of opening beer. Solid brass, USA-made, hand-finished, sand-casted, ceramic tumbled, and emblazoned with sweet, sweet reassurance.
Hear that, everyone? Throw away your dinky-ass bottle openers—you just found your new favorite. Because you know what? You did earn it.
