Turn Your Beer Bottles Into Glassware…

Beer Bottles


Over at Mens Health they have video instructions on how you can turn your beer bottles into glassware.  The materials you will need are:

  • Thick, sturdy beer bottle like Grolsch, Carona, or Lucky.
  • Lighter Fluid
  • String
  • Lighter
  • Sandpaper

The general instructions are:

  1. Tie string around the bottle tightly at the spot you want your drinking lip.
  2. Remove the string and soak in lighter fluid.
  3. Replace the sting and while holding the bottle horizontally place a lighter under the string.
  4. Slowly rotate the bottle.
  5. Place the bottle under cold running water and the top of the bottle should pop free.
  6. Use sandpaper to smooth out the rough edges of your new drinking glass.
  7. Throw away any glasses you make that have uneven or dangerous looking rims. (Hmm, got to drink more beer for this project after all…)

My plans are to try this with a few beer bottles before the summer ends and have them as glassware for a friend’s camp.  I’ll post pictures if I do.
