Really the second best thing due to availability, where there is beer there are usually lighters.
It’s not very original, but to open a beer with a lighter use the lighter as a lever to pop off the cap:
Unless you’re down to the last beer in the fridge, this method of opening another beer is one of the most readily available options.
You can open a beer with another beer by using the edge of one bottle cap to pry off the cap of the other:
Another readily available tool for the resourceful ones among us. However it is not very cool, and can be tricky.
Opening a beer with a pen involves using the pen’s sturdy end as a makeshift lever to pop off the bottle cap:
Very cool if you pull it off, but dangerous both for the beer and the drinker.
You can open a beer with a knife by carefully wedging the blade under the bottle cap and applying pressure to pop it off:
Very original and resourceful, but not good for impressing the ladies if it’s a wedding ring. Or your wife for that matter.
To open a beer with a ring, use the ring’s edge to catch the cap’s lip and leverage it off the bottle:
A very handy option especially for those times when you realise you forgot the bottle opener after you sit down.
Opening a beer with a computer keyboard is not recommended as it can damage both the keyboard and the beer bottle, and possibly upset your boss if you’re using company property. Not that you care:

Opening a beer with paper is challenging but can be done by folding a sturdy piece of paper and using it to apply pressure to the cap’s edge until it pops off:
Opening a beer bottle with a chainsaw is the manliest method of all, but as a disclaimer don’t be f**king stupid enough to try this at home.
Especially when drunk.
Very cool though:
Attempting to open a beer with breasts is neither practical nor advisable, and it’s important to prioritise safety and responsible drinking practices.
However, opening a beer with breasts is hands down the best way to open a beer… and a great reason to throw away the bottle opener in the first place.
This should be the standard method for opening beer everywhere:
