Default How much can one transport?

Hi;
Does anyone know if there is a legal limit to the amount of beer one can transport across state line without a license to do so?
I am thinking of a 'road trip' to Ft. Collins to pick up some 1554 Ale and bringing it back to NJ.

FW

I don't know, but I suggest you bring along a video camera; it's been too long since we've had a "Smokey and the Bandit" movie.

Probably depends on the state, county, etc... One of those situations where you probably are OK if you don't get caught for something else.

There IS a limit, and it's a federal limit so you can probably look it up easily if so inclined. I got nailed for this in college bringing kegs of beer across the Ohio river from Covington, KY to Cincinnati. It was considered "interstate bootlegging".

I don't know the actual amount, but I know that two kegs is considered more than the allowed "personal consumption" volume. One keg is fine for one person.

don't speed, don't wear a hat, don't smoke, don't do anything silly.
Also make sure all lights working in car, plenty of petrol, not too much weight to be visable, oil, window washer water, tyre pressures.

(me no do nothing c*ntstubble)

Yup. I actually got pulled over for speeding when this happened to me. The bootlegging thing was a bonus.

One keg per person sounds pretty good. 4 ppl on a road trip = 4 kegs on the return

Load up the car and drive the speed limit. It's best to have a local person's car when you load up 20 cases of brew, then transfer it in a quite yet secure place to your NJ plated car.

Then as folks say, drive the speed limit and make sure your car does not have anything wrong with it.

And wait till you get home till you start drinking it too.
