Carry your local craft beer in a hand-crafted six-pack carrier made by me from re-purposed wood. There's a bottle opener on one end. The Buckeye beer label is from the 1960s or 70s; "Internal Revenue Tax Paid" on the Burger Brau label means it is older than March 1950. Comes with six (new) Ohio craft beers, unless extra quality control tasting is needed.
