That's an amazing deal, considering the 1 time I saw 120 at HEB, they wanted $10.99 for a 12 oz bottle.

As was mentioned above, Oklahoma is downright awful. Even Pennsylvania, despite its geographic advantage with regard to great breweries, is a pretty crappy place to buy beer (no grocery store sales, huge markups for carry out at bars/restaurants, and otherwise stuck with buying cases at a distributor).

As for Oregon...great beer...why can't I pump my own gas?

Every state in the union has unique and crappy laws. Having traveled a lot, I found the TABC goofy, but not crippling.
Good call for the pumping gas! Growing up here I thought it was awesome. Then I went to college out of state. Now I get upset with how long it takes to get gas sometimes. Oh well, it's worth it for living in a great beer state. Also, no sales tax!

I was pretty sure that although DFH distributes to Texas I have never seen 120 listed under Texas. Not saying yall are full of it, but I don't believe it till I see it.

If someone will point me to info on how to properly ship beer, I'd be more than happy to do a beer trade with you! I'm in the Portland, OR area so I have access to all of the (subjectively) best beers in the country.

Don't tell them what is in it. I work for UPS and I am amazed what gets shipped inappropriately (or illegally), but personally I don't care what is in the box.

I have seen people use dividers made for shipping bottles, but they can be kind of expensive. Just wrap the bottles individually with bubble wrap and use some tape or packing material to keep the bottles from hitting each other. Then fill the box so it is full of the items and packing material.

The thing that causes most damaged boxes is inappropriate or lack of packing material like packing peanuts to support the sides of the box.

Hope that helps.

I'm up to trade some brews. Just give me a PM.

What i usually do is wrap each bottle with bubble wrap. Tie them together either with tape or rubber band. i usually put the beers in a garbage bag so if they do break they wont get everywhere. I just get a generic box at office depot and pack it tight so they wont move that much. hopefully it will weight less than the max on my kitchen scale. If it does, get a label online and just have to drop it off with no questions asked

Dude I live in MA.

We can't even get new magazines for our AKs and ARs here. Let alone mail-order ammo.

I feel your pain in the "WE DON'T SHIP THERE!!@%%!!!" mess.

what makes us mad is that every state has a different law and rules about everything. We will never know them all
