Very interesting and entertaining replies; Thanks guys.
In the mean time, I have been told that the New Belgium 'Fat Tire' is more widely available, so I think if I can find some in my own state it will suffice until I get to make my
'road trip'.

I loved the Smokey and the Bandit movie (the first one).

As long as you're west of the Mississippi, I think you're fine. If you plan on crossing the big river, make sure it's not a Coor's clone.

So, uh, what exactly is the punishment these days for "interstate bootlegging"? Nothing like dealing with the local liquor commission fascists while you're in college... What a bunch of nice, open-minded, highly intelligent fellows...

I am thinking of a 'road trip' to Ft. Collins to pick up some 1554 Ale and bringing it back to NJ.

From the horse's mouth:

A person may personally purchase alcoholic beverages in another state and transport them into New Jersey only if (1) the alcoholic beverages are intended to be used solely for personal use and (2) the alcohol is personally transported in a vehicle into New Jersey. The amount of alcoholic beverages transported into New Jersey for personal use cannot exceed l/4 barrel or one case containing not in excess of 12 quarts of beer and one gallon of wine and two quarts of other alcoholic beverages within any consecutive period of 24 hours. If a person wishes to transport alcohol for personal use in excess of the above amounts, an application must be made to the Director, who if satisfied of the good faith of the applicant, and upon payment of a $50 fee, may issue a special permit permitting the transportation of alcohol into New Jersey in excess of the amounts listed above.

This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.

New Belgium also makes a Tripple. Might as well make it worth your while, get something they DON"T have in NJ. But Colorado has some odd laws about buying beer, only 3.2 on sunday?

And an expensive one also. $50 for a permit, ha, probably 2 months to get a permit, and you find other fees associated with it.

Why not just brew up a good clone of it ? You'd save the gas and driving time, not to mention the beer would be cheaper.
