This magnetic bottle opener has a small but genius design advantage over other openers -- and in case there's any confusion about its purpose, it spells out the word "beer."

'The Beer Popper' is the creation of Kinetic Custom Machine, a California-based design shop. It comes in silver, gold or gun metal, and is essentially a solid, sturdy piece of aluminum carved into the shape of the word "beer." KC Machine manufactures all of its designs in its California workshop, so consumers can be sure that it's ethically sourced and artisan-made.

The simple design trick that makes the Beer Popper truly special is the magnets embedded in the beer opener. There are many magnetic bottle openers that will stick to a fridge, but the Beer Popper actually has a magnet on the inside of the opening notch, so that beer caps stick to the opener rather than flying away. It's a subtle but brilliant design innovation.
