Always happy to partner with local establishments and working with Bierkeller Columbia has been a great honor!
Scott has done some great work bringing authentic Kolumbianer, Kellerbier, and Braunbiers to market and I’m very much looking forward to the Rauchbier release in November!
I was approached to design a beer carrier for the Kolsch glasses. Keeping true to the German theme, Scott wanted a Kranz-style carrier.
After much work attempting to keep it true to style, and also able to support weight, I came upon this design. This incorporates several elements to include a dual-deck design with outer rim supports and also a center post with a metal handle giving it a more “industrial” look and feel.
Four of the Kranz’ will remain without stain or poly finish to allow to age naturally with use. A fifth Kranz is stained Jacobean with a poly coat.
