Superhero grade bottle opener.

"First off the TORQ bottle opener is a beast. Honestly I don’t see how this will ever break throughout my entire life. Aside from losing it, I think it could pretty much withstand everything from a fire to a zombie attack. "

"BEST BEER BOTTLE OPENER (PERIOD.)"

"After I received the TORQ, I was pretty amazed how solid this thing was. I almost felt like putting it in my tool box!"

Barleypop.com -- Michael

TORQ  is one serious bottle opener...  The idea was born during a dramatic inner circle meeting of the beer brotherhood late one Saturday night...  A discussion was had, decisions were made, men touting aerospace and nuclear engineering degrees were consulted...  A lone hand sketch emerged on a bar napkin..

Detailed CAD drawings containing tolerance information and material specs were carefully transported in the dead of night...  TORQ prototypes were machined in a top secret CNC machine shop on the remote island of Oahu (in Pearl City, just off Kam Hwy, up Waihona St. across from Hawaiian Steam)

All joking aside, Torq is our take on the classic key ring bottle opener offering clean lines, weighted feel, machined from billets of super tough materials and void of branding.  A “trusted friend” to withstand rigorous use and passed down for generations. 

Quotes from our fans

"When opening a 'Merican beer brewed with a round house kick from Chuck Norris, I don't want to be using a beer opener made from Chinese flat stock."
