Build a Flight Serving Tray

FREE

A variety of homebrewed beers on tap is a great way to impress your family and friends. But, when your guests have to drive home afterwards, they likely aren’t going to be up for a pint of each selection. Enter the flight serving tray (or paddle). Conveniently holding sample size glasses, flight trays should be a part of every homebrewery that has a selection of brews to offer. Here, four homebrewers offer their own designs that you can use to build a flight tray of your own.
