Friendly, twist off bottle caps may quickly become a thing of the past. Large brewery Sierra Nevada, recently switched to a new "pry-off" bottle top, and it's likely that other beer producers will follow suit.
The new pry-off caps offer increased oxygen barrier over other materials commonly used in bottle cap lines.
Apparently these caps, that require a bottle opener, are more environmentally friendly and will keep beer fresher longer. Looks like it's the beginning of the end for twist off caps.
I keep a beer bottle opener on my key chain, but how about you guys? Got any great tips for prying off a bottle cap without an opener??
