Grandson Xmas gift
Nov 26, 2019 | Posted By Jacklin J Duvall from Dandridge, TN United States
I was very disappointed when it arrived that it was not made in Ireland. I ordered it for my grandson who likes all things Irish and he likes his beer so I thought "aha" this should be a great gift for him. I returned it several weeks ago though and have not seen it refunded on my credit card as of yet.

Both my son-in-laws loved the bottle opener-perfect for their pool table room and rec room!

This was our son's Christmas gift for his "speak easy" bar/room. He loved it! Great gift!

Well made. Great face. Christmas gift.
The colors are great!

I got the forest colored John Barleycorn opener and it is very nice against the new brown siding on the wall by the back door where our deck is. The colors are much better than I imagined and well done on mine. So many compliments so far and strong hints for future gift occasions. Weatherproofing for outdoors sounds like a great idea but I will just take it inside for the winter this year.
Decorative and useful

I purchased this as a gift which was well received. The John Barleycorn Opener is well made, it is made of resin but appears metallic. Hardware is included.
Love it. Bought 2.

My son loved the opener as a first home gift.

We purchased the green man "bottle" opener. It works great and is quite the conversation starter. The green one is for our party barn and campfire area. We also bought the same item in silver for our house and we're having a lot of fun with both.

Beautifully crafted. I am very pleased.

I really wish I had taken a picture of my son as he opened this gift. John Barleycorn is a housewarming gift for their new home. For a man who doesn't tolerate "things" hung on the walls, he's already dedicated a prominent place for John at the bar.

Have had one in every house I have owned. Unfortunately had to leave it in every house for the new owners to enjoy.

I bought 2 of these one in each color for Christmas gifts. Much larger and heavy duty than I expected. The recipients loved them. I liked the forest green one much better especially if put in an outside setting but the silver one was nice, too. Depends on your taste. My only complaint was the packaging. The styrofoam forms holding it together completely disintegrated upon transport, so when I opened it I was met with these minicule styrofoam crumbles everywhere : up John Barleycorns mouth, his nostrils, in his hair and eventually on my floor. Not a real big deal but a time-consuming pain to clean out and up. No damage to the openers, tho! I also recommended to my friends to coat them with a bit of protecter if hanging out in the elements.

I have always enjoyed the 'green man' or 'John Barley Corn.' I have yet to use the item, now that it is installed, therefore I do not know how well it functions or will stand the test of time. However, it is terrifically cute & has received compliments.

I just gave one of these to my son and he really likes it. Last year, I gave one to my daughter's fiance and he also seems to really enjoy it. Great gift for a male. Decent price.

I bought two as gifts. I was impressed at how heavy these are. They were loved by both who received them.

This bottle opener is so unique, good looking and good quality. Fits perfectly in our space. The mounting hardware was not in the box, but Gaelsong sent it right away. Very happy with the product and Gaelsong.
Looks great and works too

We love our Barleycorn opener. It opens bottles well with no spillage. It is unique and very fitting that Barleycorn opens our beers. Silver version looks great with stainless appliances in kitchen. Family saw it and liked it so much we got them one, too!

John Barleycorn is a funny, practical addition to my kitchen. He is quite heavy, so one needs a substantial place to hang him. I'm quite pleased with him, but thought he might be a little lighter.
He's SO cute!
Jul 7, 2014 | Posted By Pat G from Belcamp, MD United States
Just love him to death!! He's so cute! All my guests gave commented on him. Great gift. I'm very pleased with him!!!
Attractive yet functional

I got this for my brother & he mounted it on his deck right away for enbibing outside - sent me a pic & it looks just like pewter but the resin will endure the NC climate.

Very very cool face and bottle opener! Love the concept and would buy more forest people. Out concern is how durable it will be. Feels like it will break off after just a few uses.

the opener itself was very nice and WELL received by the recipient; however the catalog stated that hard-ware was included. there was none, and NOT easily replaced due to the weight of the opener.

It's even more dramatic and gorgeous than pictured. Very sturdy and well made. . . . one of the nicer gifts I got for my husband for Christmas.
Awesome addition to the bar!
Dec 19, 2013 | Posted By Judy from Joplin, MO United States
Very nice and heavy weight so it should last for years to come. Larger than it looks in the picture.

A proud, larger-than-anticipated biter-offer of bottle caps! I can hardly wait to attach him to our bar. Beautiful!

Came on time. Quality was outstanding. It will look great in my son's backyard after his rebuild after hurricane sandy, glad he and many others in the long beach, ny community walked away with their lives.

John Barleycorn arrived sooner than expected, which was nice since it's a Christmas gift. The bottle opener is very cool; it looks like pewter and is very unique. I looked at many bottle openers online and found this to be just what I was looking for. It is bigger than you'd expect, but I was prepared for that based on someone else's review. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the "mouth" where the actual opener is is kind of gaping. It's covered by a bottle in the picture. It looks like he needs a chin, but it is an opener and to be expected. Overall, a pretty cool bottle opener for my sister's boyfriend who loves eclectic.
Beautiful quality items

The John Barleycorn bottle opener was much larger and heavier than I expected. Very satisfied with this and the 3 items I ordered from you last year. Great Christmas gifts!!! I'll see you next year!
