Exchanging beer
 
Hey so I have a good friend that lives in New York and we were looking to trade some brews back and forth. Anyone have any good suggestions on how to ship beer safely? :D

If you do a search for "shipping beer" there are not only threads discussing this but also stickied tutorials as well. Below is a nice tutorial.

The method in that thread works great. I am guessing the thread mentions this, but if not, send it UPS or FedEx, NOT USPS. It is against the rules with UPS and FedEx, but it is a federal crime to ship alcohol with the postal service (inter-state). Sorry if that is obvious, but it would be a shame for someone to get in a heap of trouble for that.

He does mention it in the sticky but at the end. I didn't know it was illegal to ship it through USPS just thought it was more frowned upon than with UPS or Fedex. Thanks for the heads up.
