Is it safe to ship bottled beer?

Do you mean safe as is possibile breaking/injury issues, or safe as in legally allowed?

1. It is safe as long as you pack the bottles properly (peanuts) and maybe mark it this side up or something like that.

2. I believe it is legal (at least for homebrewers) because you would most likely be sending an active beer (unless you filter) and therefore you have yeast in your bottle. You mark the package as yeast samples and send it on.

So it is illegal to send store bought beer? Kind of like a Smokey and the Bandit situation?

technically, if you send beer across state lines, you need a permit.

realistically, no one will care as long as it's not shipping in metric tons.

I'm glad someone aksed that question. I was thinking of sending some samples to my brother in Wisconin and wasn't sure if it was legal.

May 2005 I believe it applies to free beer and/or "Live Yeast Cultures".

Supreme Court Strikes Interstate Shipping Bans

"The most important legal ruling involving the U.S. wine industry in decades strikes interstate shipping bans in Michigan and New York. Wine Institute president Bobby Koch calls the ruling "a major victory in a 20-year battle to end discrimination against America's family-owned wineries and the millions of consumers who want their wines."
