I'd like to make a growler carrier out of wood that holds 2 growlers. Does anyone have plans to share?

The other option I'm interested in would hold 2 growlers and a tasting glass.

I used these plans for an 8-pack carrier. The principles would apply but you'd have to adjust to the size of your growlers. I want to do something similar but don't have two matching growlers (yet). I am debating between the aesthetics of wood and perhaps a cloth or leather version (smaller, easier to store, etc.).

I think if I were to make this for growlers instead of the wooden dowel I'd use some kind of rope, otherwise the damn thing would be almost a foot and a half tall.

Share your plans and pictures when you're done. I'm curious which way you go.

No. Six is a joke. I took the spacers out and could cart 9. I can drink 4-5 and have enough to share without being bitter. I do want to have two growlers of the same size for the plans the OP has. OP, keep us posted.

I have CAD.

I'm going to draw it to fit two growlers.

4 to 5 in one sitting? I'd die.
