How to Open a Beer Bottle with Roll Film

I do most of my printing and film development in my darkroom. I am lucky enough to have a very well equipped room for my hobby. It’s rare that I do not have something to hand when I need it. The only constant exception to this is a bottle opener to pop the cap on my darkroom beer. To counter this problem I have developed the skills that allow me to open beer with pretty much anything I can grab. Here I am using a roll of 35mm film.

To do this at home you will need:

The technique is simple, use your thumb as a pivot point and press the edge of the film canister against the edge of the bottle cap.

Enjoy your beer.

    Ha! Seems a bit ignoble for Sensia, I think I’d be using Fujicolor 200 myself. Unless I’m mistaken, I’d say you’re drinking Hoegaarden! 🙂

      Joe this roll of Sensia expired in 2008 and is destined to be xpro’ed so it seems like a fitting use for it. Yep that is a bottle of Hoegaarden 😀
