USPS:
Beer, wine, and liquor may not be sent through the mail. If you want to reuse a box for shipping that has alcoholic beverage labels on it, remove all logos and labels so your package will pass through the mail system.

UPS:
UPS does not accept shipments of beer or alcohol for delivery to consumers. UPS accepts shipments of beer or alcohol only among and between selected states. The ability to ship wine depends upon the nature of the shipper's license to sell wine, and the laws of the destination states.

FedEx:
Many restrictions.

That being said, checkout UHAUL. Buy $50 worth and get free shipping.

Zombie thread!

And yes, they are always live yeast cultures in UV-protective dark glass containers.

Sorry for necro-posting. It showed up in the "Newest Forum Threads" block on the right.
