ProTip: Save a beer for later with a cork

A simple trick for when you’re stuck with an open beer you can’t finish until later.

 

We’ve all been there. That horrible spot, stuck between a rock and a hard place. We just sit down to enjoy a beer on a beautiful Saturday afternoon when our girlfriends remind us that we have an urgent errand to run.

In our younger years we may have tried to just stick the open bottle back in the fridge, or worse, guzzled it before heading out. The solution is actually quite simple. An old wine cork slides perfectly and snugly inside a bottle of beer.

Happy weekending fellas!

    Huh. Never thought of that. Same concept as having a growler, I guess?

    Or you could just be a man and finish the beer.

    I don’t want to sound like a jerk, but if you open a beer you should commit to a beer. Man up.

      Yes AJ…that sounds very “manly” to me. I apologize that my desire to fully enjoy a beer at a later time instead of chugging it before heading out does not meet your level of manliness. I may need to man up by your definition but by mine you need to grow up.

  • Jake

    i agree andrew… there is always a situation that will come up. great tip!

  • Adam

    AJ should be a writer for Primer so he can tell us how to be less practical and more MANLY!

    Sorry if I offended. I struggle to take this seriously when a Sam’s Coastal Wheat is pictured. I looked it up, and its 5.3% according to Beeradvocate. If you had used an image of an 18oz microbrew or a growler as Turling mentioned, I probably would have thought it could be useful.
    Understanding your tolerance and avoiding dangerous levels of intoxication are very important. But as a fan of beer, respecting you beverage is important too, which means understanding what you’re getting in to when you take the bottle opener in hand.

    Adam, if they pay me I will.

    I homebrew, and if I ever need to save one for later I just use my bottle capper and seal it up.

    Good advice Andrew. Also look up “Wine Rabbit Bottle Stoppers” on Amazon. That’s what I use and they work great. It’s nice to be able to drink a 15% abv 750ml over the course of a few days. Oh and if you homebrew you can also just recap the bottle (if it wasn’t originally corked).

    Now, I try my darndest to be a pretentious know-it-all, but man I can’t even HANG with a quote like that!

    It’s a helpful tip. Chugging beer is only cool for college kids.

    Good tip andrew, but drinking the entire bottle of wine made me much more drunk then the rest of the beer probably would.
