We think that any device that opens beers in one, quick little pop should be called a piece of “functional art” but the creators of the Discommon Goods Bottle Opener were serious. California-made and machined from a chunk of aerospace aluminum, this bottle opener looks as good as it works.

For some, fall is sweater season. For the more evolved among us, cool autumn weather makes this the time for serious sandwiches. Chicken, apples, & brie make great combo in a salad but imagine it all melted between two slabs of your favorite bread.  Add a dark beer and uh, see you after your nap.
