If you’ve ever been in a hardware store or tool shed while craving an ice cold beer, the thought of opening one up with a ball peen hammer has probably occurred to you. But even though it seems like it should work, the fact of the matter is that ball peen hammers are built to pull out nails, not bottle caps – every ball peen hammer, that is, except the Beer Peen Hammer.
The Beer Peen Hammer is reportedly the result of intensive product research involving trial-and-error 3D printing, but once the design was settled upon it was an authentic foundry in Chicago that made it a solid bronze reality. It has the heft of a traditional hammer, but it can actually open beers as well, which makes it at least 1000 times more useful.
You can see a few photos of the Beer Peen Hammer in the gallery underneath these words. And to buy your own, head over to the Good Beer Hunting online store here, where it’s priced at $55.
