Summer is the best time of the year for me. I have a longer holiday and I usually would go to the wood with my gear and at time spending time outdoor with my mate. One essential tool I do not forget is my wood beer caddy (for example check this cold creek brewing). The crate is not just essential and functional but also very beautifully designed. It can be used both outdoor or indoor. Well, I prefer to use it mostly outdoor as they are weather resistant.
Good gift for:
The wooden beer carrier is an ideal gift for men mostly. In particular, you could get these beer holders for your farther, your daddy in law during his birthday or on father’s day (this year falls on Sunday June 18th 2017). Some people also reported that they get these beer caddy for their groomsmen on a wedding day. Not a bad idea either. Lastly, these beer caddies could be great Christmas gift idea for men as well.
What you should look out when buying Wood Beer Caddy
- Check out for minimum clinking sound i.e. if the crate is intended for a 6 pack, then the space in those holes must not be too large or it will make lots of clinking sound.
- The shape of the crate shall be either square or rectangular. Do not buy those that are round or wavy shape as they are not easily transportable.
- I prefer the beer caddy to be multi function. Therefore, I always buy those that have at least a bottle opener. Well, it is a personal choice.
Without further ado, let’s check out these 27 best wood beer crate you can buy for under 100$.
Wood Beer Caddy With Opener
Let me start with the Caddy that has a built in beer opener. This is because it is my favourite designed. First of all, I don’t need to buy or remember to bring my beer opener all the time.
1. Hedge & Ruiz Emporium’s 6 pack handcrafted wooden beer tote

This tote is made entirely in America and by hand. Therefore, each piece is unique on its own. For sale on Amazon at just 34.95$.
2. Bey Berk’s black solid wood 6 pack bottle caddy
This is yet another great designed 6 pack bottle caddy with an opener. It is made totally from black solid wood and it has a dimension of 9″L x 6″W x 9.5″H. Currently for sale on Amazon at just 30.95$. Not to mention its ergonomic handle is a plus.
3. Cheap 6 pack handcrafted bottle carrier with bottle opener by The Stout Crate
This 6 bottle tote is made with pine construction with plywood at the base. Currently for sale at just 19.99$, it is one of the cheapest wood beer caddy I found. With a lifetime guarantee by the Stout Crate, you will never get wrong.
While it is the cheapest I find, many customers are happy customer. One of the client states that the caddy can be painted or stained. The wooden tote takes very well when sanded and stained.
4. Perfect Pour’s wooden 6-pack beer holder with napkin holder and opener
This product is different from other customized beer tote out there thanks to its side holder. It was promised to hold beer flights, napkins or coasters. However, some clients claimed that they were having a hard time finding beer glass that fit nicely onto the beer flights as this product includes the two beer flights but not the beer glass. Therefore, if you intend to buy this from Amazon at 35.95$, I suggest use the side rack for napkins or coaster instead and be prepared to find a beer glass that will fit into the beer flights.
