Not sure if anyone else has had this happen but it bothered me enough to blog about it. I opened a new bottle of Sam Adams yesterday with a bottle opener and the cap came off with no problem. The problem was so did the lip of the bottle. I’ve probably opened thousands of beers this way over the years and never had this happen before. See the image I included. Not sure what the cause of it was but I ended up with a shard of glass in my finger and a wasted beer. Fluke? or some manufacturing flaw? Sam Adams should bang on their glass suppliers door and see what is going on.
