This is my 2nd wallet from Mindy, and my first custom wallet, and I love it!! I am so happy I got exactly what I wanted! Talk about CUSTOM! And in time for Father's Day too. Mindy is awesome! Can't thank her enough. If you LOVE the beer and have something special to remind you of it, I can guarantee smiles every time you see it. Hope the new design goes well too! -Prosit!

Which version #ruinationipa do you prefer? Judging by the 4-pack box (now #beerwallet) I'd pick the #ruination2.0

About

Wallets and other accessories made from used craft beer packaging.

I am a full-time mom and I work during my son's nap each day. I started making wallets and other accessories out of craft beer 4-packs and 6-packs in 2010. I designed my best-selling, bi-fold men's wallet in July of 2011. All patterns are my own, sketched down on notepads and graph paper. Everything you see in my shop was designed here first.
I strive to make each piece completely functional and sturdy. At the same time, I wish to embrace the novelty of "upcycling" a used beer package. I do not intend my pieces to look like they were manufactured in mass quantities by machines. Remember, I hand-make every single piece you see in my shop. I want you to pull out your wallet and embrace all its blemishes. Every scuff, crease, or seam you see in the box material should be a reminder that someone (maybe it was you or maybe it was ME) who appreciates craft beer enjoyed every bottle that was kept in that six-pack box. It should bring back fond memories and make you thirsty for more. I'm right there with you as I put my heart into every piece of beer gear that emerges from my cutting table.

And, here are some reviews of my products:
“Very fast shipping. Nice packaging. Very pleased with the quality. Gave it as a gift and the bro-in-law loved it!”
“My second headband! I got so many compliments on the first, I needed a new one. :)”
“Super durable and looks so neat, my husband gets so many complements!”
“Awesome quality! This one will last a while.”
“This wallet is better than I expected! It looks great and durable! Very quick shipping.”
“Awesome quality and my husband loves it! He gets asked about it all the time--all the other husbands are jealous!”

DISCLAIMER: Mindy's Beer Gear is not licensed product of the breweries the materials came from. Mindy's Beer Gear items were created in my home workshop. Mindy's Beer Gear is in no way trying to compete with or duplicate any products sold by the breweries. All materials used were obtained by purchasing & consuming the product. Those materials were then upcycled and turned into something new instead of throwing them away and filling some landfill. Mindy's Beer Gear makes beer gear because she loves beer and supports breweries in the craft beer world. Nearly all of the breweries who's boxes I use are happy with what I do. If anyone isn't, I willingly do not upcycle their trash. I'm not here to get rich. Just to pay for diapers :)

Thank you for visiting my Etsy page. I am a lover of craft beer. I take the trash from my favorite breweries and make it into something one-of-a-kind. My goal is to bring a smile to your face every time you pull out our Gonzo wallet to pay for groceries or see your luggage come down the conveyor belt sporting an adorable SKA Brewing luggage tag. I also hope to bring more attention to my favorite breweries by creating a unique outlet of advertising for them. If my favorite breweries are doing well, they will continue to brew fabulous beer.

Additional policies and FAQs
Please message me regarding custom orders. I do not require prepayment. Any crazy idea is welcomed. This is how it will work:
You will contact me asking if I can create what you have in mind. I will say "yes I can make that" and I will look through my inventory of beer boxes to see if I have what you need. If I do not, I will suggest that you mail me a box from your favorite beer. I will make your custom item and notify you when it is ready and posted on Etsy. The item will have a hold for you in the title. You will then purchase your item like normal.
Simple as that. It is very satisfying to do custom orders. I love to know that you have something unique and personal to you.

I do offer wholesale pricing. I would love to get to know you brewery owners and make you some awesome gear. Beer people are the coolest. Send me a message and I'd be happy to get a few free samples out to you.

Many of the boxes I use are from breweries I am in contact with and I have consent to use their boxes. I have such an overwhelmingly positive response from craft brewers that I assume, for the most part, that I am doing something good. If any of you craft breweries are not happy with what I am doing please let me know. I have no problem with you exercising your trademark rights and I will cooperate with your request to stop using your trash.
