How it started: The founder of OBS wanted to create a “Midnight Society” of beer drinkers who dressed up and gathered to share a bottle or can of their choice. In October 2014, the founder of OBS shared a beer with a friend. This friend spewed the beer, then two had a heated debate over the beers qualities. Culminating in a brilliant idea. Why not film all reactions, discussions, and beer related antics? That my friends is how The Open Bottle Society began.
What makes us different from other beer sharing groups: We are real people, who have one important thing in common; We love beer. What makes us different? We are serious about beer, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We share, learn and laugh…a lot.
Why join us: OBS is a group with diverse palates and everyone is always welcome; it doesn’t matter if your favorite is Bud Light or Samuel Adams Utopias, OBS wants to share it with you!

Open Bottle Society
Do you have a love for craft beer, comedy and community? Open Bottle Society has the perfect recipe for all three nicely brewed into an easy to swallow concoction. OBSBeers is known as the pinnacle that embraces the entire beer community. From beer sharing, exciting beer reviews, lots of togetherness and tons of entertainment, Open Bottle Society is a place where you can sit back, relax and crack open a cold one.
Open Bottle Society was founded in the fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada by World class Chef, Master Butcher, Lovable Show Host and Beer Connoisseur – Key. Mr. Key got his start in “The Beer Game” as a chef and butcher. He would make creations by pairing the perfect wine and beer with the flavor profiles captured in his dishes. After proudly serving in the military for many years, Key returned home with a passion to help others learn. And one of the forms he used was by teaching how to properly select and combine beer, wine or spirit with different flavors.
Key and Open Bottle Society have taken the world (and the internet world) by storm. OBS Beers on Periscope with over 17 million hearts has been verified as “Periscope VIP”. Over 2 years, hundreds of videos and thousands of likes on YouTube. OBSBEERS.COM and its #bottlesquad receive an average 20,000 unique visitors monthly. These numbers would not have been possible if it wasn’t for Key and his Open Bottle Society’s attention to detail, honest and quality beer reviews, brewery tours, and festival takeovers. Key has utilized his expertise in beer, his loving personality and outstanding people skills and has taken what started out as a following and turned it into a family.
