Attractive design + sultry voice = Hans heaven

Hans is famous for his phrase, "German is my first language. But English is my first lover." However, that didn't seem to fit well with a bottle opener. So, we digitally remastered a line from the Das Beer Boot video and "stuck it in ze boot" of the bottle opener.

Every time you crack a bottle, Hans will say, "Ooh yah, that's more like it, keep pouring!" Now you have no reason to cut any fun party short!

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: I thought "Stick it in ze boot" was Hans' signature phrase?

Answer: That depends on who you ask. However, Hans is probably saving that phrase for his upcoming line of cookbooks. He simply felt that "Ooh yah, that's more like it, keep pouring" was ideal for opening beer.

Question: How long do the batteries last?

Answer: Each set of batteries lasts for over 250 bottle opens.

Replacing the batteries is possible, but can be a bit challenging due to nine small screws that must be removed to access the battery compartment. Please note that the Hans Gretel Signature Talking Bottle Opener comes with a fresh set of batteries.

Question: OMG! Did Hans go blonde?

Answer: All we can say is that Hans gets what Hans wants.

Question: How do I get Hans to come to my next party?

Answer: Buy a few hundred of these bottle openers first and we'll see what we can arrange with the artist!
