Synopsis: This Drink Local decal with your choice of state makes a super cute beer opener gift for your man that you can make in an afternoon!
DIY Drink Local Beer Bottle Opener
So you are one of the countless thousands of women who have a man who appreciates beer (or love it yourself), I'm there, too. I've done several beer related gifts through the years; pilsner glasses, steins, a cute 6 pack mixer with cheesy labels "you make me so hoppy," and this year... I sort of ran out of ideas! Yes, I get him other things, too, but it is tradition to do a beer-related present. I mean, he gets use out of it and he truly enjoys his brews. 

He has an opener he really enjoys, it is "balanced" and feels good in his hand- but he often misplaces it! I figured this year I would combine a few things he loves and make him his very own beer bottle opener that he CANT lose. Ready for it? 

Rustic Drink Local Beer Opener... that goes right onto the wall. 
You can pick any state, but I chose Ohio (go Bucks!) because it is his home state and they've got some seriously good local brews. I bought the vinyl on the Trading Phrases website and picked my state HERE. I chose white because I knew I wanted to stain my boards, but you can probably skip that step and choose black for good contrast or even a school color or something. 

When the decal came in a few days later I bought a small board at Lowes and cut it in 1/2 as it was too long (I made two, because... why not) and stained it with a dark walnut stain I had laying around my garage.

Next I applied the decal and screwed in one of these beer openers that I found on Amazon- pack of 6 HERE for $15 (prime) but you can get just one HERE for $9, I didn't need 6 but couldn't pass up the deal. 
That is it! If you want it to lean against the wall you can end with that, but I put on some little hooks in the back so I could screw it directly into the wall as a counter weight. I put one up by the keg in the office (yeah, we are pretty cool), but plan to give the other to my main squeeze on Christmas- so I'll let you know the verdict there. So far the guys at the office are loving this one.
