As far as cost, I don't know. UPS goes by weight, and of course oversized packages cost more. 5 gallons of beer weighs about 45 pounds or so. If you are under 50 pounds, you avoid the "freight" charge, I believe.
We ship through Fed Ex at work so I can get the "corporate" discount there... Problem is.. It's against company policy to bring alcoholic beverages on the property. I was thinking it's going to be more like 50 lbs...
I told the guys that SOMEBODY may need to "rent" a CO2 tank from a welding place... And we'll need a method of keeping it cold....
The guys are a bunch of IPA fans, so I'm thinking about brewing a special batch of the Yoopers House Ale... with the Summit Hop twist I put on it.
Enjoying a glass of that right now!
