Featured in Real Simple Magazine, and in Wired and in the Beer West Magazine 2012 Gift Guide, selected by Core77 as of 77 Must-Haves for Hard Times for 2011, and chosen by Chilango Magazine as one of 5 Objetos de Deseo.
This stripped-down, minimalist beer box has been unofficially named "The Spartan Carton".
Designed to complement the six-pack bicycle frame cinch (see listing: http://www.etsy.com/listing/69286355/6-pack-frame-cinch-polo-mallet-holder).
This sturdy, reusable six-pack is perfect for those who want to transport their bottles in classic style.
Composed of leather rings riveted together and riveted to a central masonite or plyboo (a bamboo "plywood") handle.
I designed the leather rings to create a "basket" around the handle, and spaced wide enough to reveal the bottle labels.
The plyboo (lighter-colored) centerboard is shown in the second, third and fifth pictures, masonite (darker-colored) is shown in first, second, and fourth pictures.
This minimal and clean design reduces weight: empty, the carton weighs 10 oz.
Solid and sturdy, this reusable beer carrier holds up to the rain.

"Two opposable thumbs way up!
For Christmas I just received the 6 pack leather carrying case, and I love the design! Great craftsmanship, beautiful leatherworking, and I love the bamboo handle. Aesthitically, nothing could look better with my bamboo frame bicycle. I have been using the 6 pack bicycle frame cinch since August, and with this new 6 pack carrying case my liquor store commute is complete. I no longer have any reason to fret about ripping through that paperboard carrying case.
Thank you for your excellent craftsmanship!"
"This is such a beautiful piece. What was meant to save packaging on my trips to pick up beer turned out also to be incredibly cool."
"It looks even better in person than what I hoped for."
