Rustic and utilitarian, Danny Brown’s beverage carriers are a perfect option when plain paper sacks and weak cardboard carriers won’t cut it. He started making the carriers out of scraps from his kayak/canoe paddle-making business. Danny’s side work took off, and he launched Meriwether of Montana, which is named for Meriwether Lewis, one half of the epic explorer duo Lewis and Clark.
Danny’s Classic Six Pack Carrier is handcrafted from western red cedar and finished with linseed oil. With a handy side-mounted bottle opener, it’s perfect for toting home-brewed beer or a variety pack of your favorite bottles. The Wine Carrier holds two bottles and has a spot for a corkscrew. The Growler Carrier makes it easy to transport a local microbrew without having to use the growler’s awkward single-finger handle. Show up with any of these reusable carriers and you’ll be a favorite on every host’s guest list.
Danny also makes a classic cedar tree swing, trimmed with walnut. His outdoor swing has the same nostalgic, charming appeal as his beverage caddies. It might just be the best seat in the house.
