Be VERY careful Review by Ben

It works some of the time. Some of the time the carboy slips out of the hauler, cracking your carboy and your countertop. Luckily no one was hurt but I won't be trusting this thing anymore. (Posted on 10/14/14)

Makes moving much easier Review by Ashley

This works great on my 6.5 gal plastic carboy and 5 gal glass carboys. Especially for the glass ones since they're already heavy to begin with. Making moving and lifting so much easier! (Posted on 1/15/14)

Functional but breakable Review by Zach
Rating
The Brew Hauler works exceptionally well. It makes steadily and safely transporting full carboys a breeze....but, the straps are stitched together quite poorly and several of the stitches on the 4 Brew Haulers I own broke or started fraying within one year of ownership. This is a little frustrating but there is a workaround if you still love the Brew Hauler design like I do. Simply use a sewing machine or take your Brew Hauler to your local tailor and have them reinforce the stitches with stronger thread. (Posted on 12/30/13)

This is my second one to purchase. I can't imagine trying to lower a full carboy into or out of my chest freezer without these. A definite must-have for moving carboys! (Posted on 12/4/13)

A great help Review by Benjamin

This sling makes it easier for both 1 and 2 man carries of full carboys. I wish I had a dedicated brewing/fermenting space, however i frequently have to move my brewing equipment around and the brew hauler makes it easy. (Posted on 11/7/13)

great product Review by Christine

I brew upstairs in the kitchen, do primary fermentations at the other end of the house, & the secondary fermentations in the basement. This makes maneuvering the wet glass carboys so much simpler (& safer, when it comes to the stairs). Great product. (Posted on 9/9/13)
Makes transport a breeze Review by Troy
Rating
I brew in the kitchen, but I store my primary and secondary (plastic) carboys downstairs while they work their magic. The Brewhauler makes moving up and down those stairs a breeze.
agitation of my beer is kept to a minimum, even when moving the carboys by myself.
Placing the hauler on the full carboys was really easy, once I got used to it. But I would recommend double checking the clip before you lift. It's not prone to unhooking, but I have had it a bit loose which wasn't very noticeable before beginning to lift the carboy.
I'm very glad I purchase this. (Posted on 8/29/13)

Glass is hard to carry down stairs. It's even worse if there is any moisture on the carbon. The brew hauler works well. (Posted on 7/12/13)
Overall nice product Review by Jon
Rating
Something to haul a carboy with is better than nothing. While it can be awkward to carry and you do end up waddling like a duck it definitely beats carrying a full carboy bare handed (especially glass). Overall it is a decent product. Would be cool if they had an attachment to a handle of some sort so you can carry 1 handed. (Posted on 6/18/13)
Nice Review by Let me be Frank

Moving carboys... This made moving a lot easier though I'd say buy 2 because if you ferment in and do secondary in a carboy putting this on a full carboy can be time consuming. But true to its use I can move them easier with less strain on the back! (Posted on 3/30/13)
very nice Review by Wayne

Worked well on my 5gallon carboy. Helped to move fairly securely and help me to aerate my wort well. Wish I had gotten it sooner. More secure than I though once placed and tightened, but didn't move up/down stairs. (Posted on 3/13/13)
Love it! Review by James

I used this on my 6.5 gallon acid carboy on brewday last week. I can't believe I used to use the neck handle (while also supporting it from underneath as well) for so long. Carrying it that way was always awkward and would usually stir up a little bit of sediment from the bottom. One thing to note is that you should check and recheck the strap placement on the bottom straps to make sure they are evenly spaced. You also want to make sure that the handle straps are spaced 180 degrees opposite each other so the carboy doesn't start to tip forward or backward on you while carrying. Going to pick up another one of these for my secondary next week. (Posted on 1/7/13)
How did I get along without this? Review by Milwaukee Beer Maker
Rating
I brew in the kitchen (upstairs) and ferment in the basement (downstairs). It always made my wife nervous carrying my big 6.5 gallon carboy down the stairs in my arm. This product is amazing!!! It doesn't make a full carboy any lighter, but a LOT less awkward to carry down the stairs. Now I can fully focus on the steps knowing my carboy and beer are secured in the hauler. Easily adjustable makes it easy to find the perfect spot that works for you. (Posted on 9/5/12)

It's probably better than craddling it. Review by jeffrey

It does make hauling a full carboy (with lid) from the garage to the basement easier but not by much. When is someone going to make a hauler that is like a backpack, now that would make hauling easier. (Posted on 11/30/11)

Why trust your precious brew in one hand when you can use two? Review by whc
Rating
I do all of my brewing in my kitchen and fermentation in my basement. I have never used the one handed hoop handles but couldn't imagine how fun it would be to haul 5 gallons of brew up and down 15 steps. I've got a bad back and this allows me to comfortably carry my full carboy wherever I need it to be. It is a pretty basic design and I could stand to see the bottom portion of the straps to be coated in a durable rubber or plastic to act both as a cushion and grip for the carboy. You also want to make sure that you space the straps out evenly once you put it around your carboy, they are all adjustable. Don't want it to slip through where the space may be too large. Good product. Simple ideas can easily become great and useful products. (Posted on 8/4/11)
It's OK, not good for 6.5 acid carboys Review by Do The Home Brew
Rating
My 6.5 acid carboys are way too big for this thing. You have to let the adjustable strap out all the way (which is sketchy enough) but then it leaves about 1/3 of the carboy sticking out with no support. Also it's a bit awkward to carry even an empty carboy with. I'm going to see if I can sew additional webbing on to make it more the size of a 6.5 gal carboy... (Posted on 7/8/11)
Not good if ya gotta HAUL! Review by Jon
Rating
I can imagine this product would be fine if you have to simply go from the kitchen to your bathroom. However, in my case, I have to go down 2 flights of stairs to my beer cellar, and holy heck is my back hurting today. You have to use two hands with this, and the carboy ends up infront of you, between your legs, forcing you to waddle like a duck the whole time. Beer splashes everywhere, not a good thing at all.

Stick to the products that only require ONE HAND, so you can the carboy to the side of you enabling you to walk upright, and quicker. (Posted on 3/25/11)
Needs a little re-engineering Review by KF
Rating
Don't get me wrong, I like the brew hauler. I have 4 of them. They could, however, stand a little re-engineering. I was taking a 5 gallon carboy down the steps to my basement and on about the 4th step down the carboy slipped between the bands of the brew hauler and tumbled end over end to the bottom of the steps. The airlock popped out and the neck of the carboy punched a nice jagged hole in my basement door. Needless to say there was beer splattered everywhere. Could have been worse, my carboy could have shattered, but it still was not cool. I would suggest maybe another horizontal band be placed towards the bottom ot the hauler to prevent this issue.

Great Investment Review by Jeremy from MN

I love these things!! Review by Lui In Idaho

I purchased my first Brew Hauler after I purchased the metal handle that attaches around the neck of the carboy. I was not comfortable with that handle -- I never really used it. I liked the idea of the nylon straps and keeping in with the carboy all the time. It is also very easily removed should it be in the way.

I used this with my glass carboy, and purchased some other similar products for use with my Better Bottles. With the other products, either the handles are too long or too short. The Brew Hauler has always been my favorite.

I recently saw one of these at my Local Brew Shop. I siezed the opportunity and bought the original. It is a great product and I would not have any less than one for each carboy -- glass or plastic. (Posted on 1/7/11)
No more back pain Review by Jeremy
Rating
After suffering for years moving 5 and 6.5 gallon carboys, I found this! It's as if Gambrinus himself sent these to me. Moving a carboy has never been easier. I now own 4 of these haulers and keep them on the carboy throughout fermentation. If only the bottom part had a rubber coating or sleeve for protection against the concrete floor in my fermentation room. (Posted on 1/4/11)
much easier Review by William
Rating
Bought these after having to carry a few batches out of my apartment down to my storage space, through a few doors and winding stairs. Much easier to handle, pick up and set down. The only thing I need to do is cut some rubber or carpet pads for my carboys that fit inside these, so can set them down on a concrete floor without worry. Hopefully they will last a while. I highly recommend. (Posted on 10/26/10)
