    Hand-Made, Wall Mounted Bottle Opener

    "Oh, hello there. Welcome to my parlor. May I interest you in a limited release offering from local brewery, Alvarium Beer Company? They're classy as f*ck.

    Feel free to use my wall mounted, limited edition, hand-signed bottle opener; hand-built by the inimitable Kate Bugnacki, herself. Why, yes, that very bottle opener IS made from the same wood used to build their "10-Ton Bar." I do so enjoy using the collected bottle caps to pelt unsuspecting passers-by from the back of my Rolls-Royce. Good show!"

    Mega prestige comes at a price. Get these while they last.

    Each unique piece has been numbered and hand signed by each co-founder, and the artist, Kate.

    **If you would like one of these bottle openers, here's how you do it on Kickstarter: Change your reward to this one (Wall Mount Bottle Opener) then increase the dollar amount to cover the other reward(s) you would like. At the end of the campaign, we'll send out a message to confirm your reward(s).**
