Default Bottles on airplane??

Anyone ever traveled with some of their bottled brew? I was thinking about taking a 6 pack back home with me for my family to sample but was wondering about the pressures.....

Thoughts?

Shouldn't be a problem. I've done it many, many times, minikegs also.

Carry on is no problem, and neither is checking it. The cargo holds on airliners are pressurized. I've done it both ways without issue.

I wouldn't think that in this day in age they would let you bring glass bottles on with your carry on luggage. Seems to me that if nail clippers of all things are a no, then glass would be too.

You wouldn't have to worry about pressure changes even if you checked them though. I would just be worried about all the joslting as the bags are loaded/unloaded etc.

perhaps you could pack them very snuggly?

Someone oughta try and carry on a primary.
Extra points if you rack during the beverage service.

But seriously has anyone checked a full corny?

Just a little information that falls under the catagory of no one really cares but here goes.

Most of the airlines actually have a rule that you cannot bring any alcohol (even for transport purposes) onto their aircraft that is under 14% ABV. The reason, they don't want you bringing your own beer and cutting into their 5$ piss water sales. Note, this is airline policy and not federal. However, I have never seen this enforced (though once I saw a guy open his own beer from his carry on and the flight attendant asked him to put it away . . . never saw anyone chug a bottle that fast).

Having said that, I am taking a bunch of homebrew to the East Coast for thanksgiving . . . each will have a label taped on saying 15% ABV. You know, just in case.

I've been told that I cannot drink it on board and I say that I know, it's for souvenoir purposes.

Of course, nothing was said when I handcarried 2 minikegs back from Germany last year, plus I had 2 more in my check-in...
