    The expression church key is old in the brewing business.

    As one brewery worker wrote

    'I worked in a brewery for about 35 years and everybody carried a bottle opener or church key, perhaps so called because it looked like the top end of the kind of heavy ornate key used to unlock church doors. '

    The opener yes, a real church key - no!
