About this project
Many beer enthusiasts ride bicycles- whether for commuting, exercise, or just for fun. Here in Portland, we have seen a few too many cyclists struggling to find ways to carry their growlers from breweries or bottle shops, to their final destinations. We have personally experienced the awkwardness of trying to carry a growler in a backpack, or attempt to fit a growler in a traditional pannier along with expensive computers, work clothes, or groceries. With Hop Hands, we remove these burdens to help you get your growler from point A to point B safely and easily, and with comfort and style.
Hop Hands mission is to deliver quality beer transportation products, which encourage environmentally friendly choices and help give back to the community. Hop Hands is a simple growler carrying devices that straps onto a bike, or can be carried by hand. Unlike other growler transportation products, Hop Hands is adjustable to fit multiple sizes and styles of bicycles. Our product does not require any permanent fixture to a bicycle, thus providing more flexibility to the customer.
Don’t have a bicycle? No problem! Hop Hands is a great way to carry your growler over your shoulder when your hands are full with dog leashes, blankets, and food- like ours often are!
Hop Hands is made with a heavy-duty canvas, and lined with neoprene to help insulate and protect the growler. Since Hop Hands is adjustable, it can carry 750mL wine bottles or 22oz bombers, as well as growlers. Just cinch down the side straps to adjust Hop Hands to other bottle sizes.
Own a brewery or bike shop? We can screen print your logo directly onto our product. Hop Hands makes a great gift for beer and bike fans or customers!
Slide your growler in the Hop Hands and roll down the top and snap closed. Use the adjustable straps on the side to both tighten your Hop Hands to the growler, and to adhere to a bicycle. The Velcro strap on the bottom gives added support while biking, and helps prevent your growler from sliding around.
Hop Hands is a team of two women, Emily and Jenna, who met volunteering, and found a mutual passion for beer, biking, and the Pacific Northwest. We both enjoy local, craft beer, hiking and camping, biking around Portland, and meeting up to take our dogs to the park.
Our experience includes marketing, sales, project development, and nonprofit development. We love the beer community, and are excited to be a part of it!

Risks and challenges
As with any product manufacturing project, there can be unforeseen risks. Creating products can encounter obstacles along the way.
Our team has already chosen the supplier to manufacture our product. After sending them our product, we have worked with their design team to create the most efficient and effective product. All screen printing will be handled by a local Portland company.
As of the Kickstarter launch, we have prototyped many Hop Hands, and product tested every change we make.
We will keep you up to date with emails as Hop Hands gets closer to production, and will do everything possible to stay on schedule, and deliver you a high quality product.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
