Description
The “beer retriever” is a small plexiglas plate with a section cut out for the bottleneck. A plastic ring sits on the plate through which the user inserts a finger when he wants to grasp the bottle.

In order to pour the beer the user places the open bottle in the same position he uses to cook (see associated tip).

How to make
Heat a piece of Plexiglas, cut it and shape it so that it fits a bottle. The ring is a wooden ring that comes from a curtain rod.
