Also works just fine with another beer bottle (use the cap end), a plastic bottle, ... really almost anything if you're desperate!
Other bottles is my way too, but I guess the newspaper does that last one in the box....

To open the last bottle, you snap a lid back on an empty bottle and use that. That sort of popping open doesn't destroy the lid like a bottle opener does.

I'm still amazed when I meet people in their late 20's and older who don't know the essential life skill of popping one beer open with another.

The next time I have friends over drinking beer, I'm going to lay a newspaper on the table and put a beer bottle next to it. I'm then going to challenge them to open the bottle with the paper.

I'll have to make sure it isn't a twist off, because I thought you were going to wrap the paper around the bottle cap to protect your hand while twisting the cap off.

I just break the neck off on the bumper of my truck and pour the beer into my mouth. once the bottle is empty, I toss it against the brick wall, scream YEEEEAAAH!! and kick my friend in the jimblies.

or you can use spoon, fork, or side of the table.

Side of the table is faster when you are drinking with friend.
But it must be a good friend and a bad table. More than once the lid has stayed on my beer and a chunk of table gave way
