The Craft Brew Carriage
Winner - Bronze

After interviewing San Francisco home-brewers, the words care, precision, and attention to detail kept coming up. This is why the Brew Carriage was designed to be as well crafted as the beers it carries. Currently, home-brewers have few options for transporting their bottles aside from someone else’s six-pack holder that crumbles when wet, and ends up in a landfill. We at Craft Carriage believe in making products that will last beyond the lifetime of the buyer. We strive to make heirlooms that, in this case, can be passed on to future generations of brewers. We have made a sturdy waterproof carriage that patinas over time. We hand bend each wooden piece until it reaches the proper tension to hold the bottles securely in the bottomless carrier. The adjustable leather strap allows for different size bottles. The brewer can simply slides the brews into the carriage, tighten the strap, and go.
