how would one go about shipping a bottle or two across state lines?

Do not use USPS. It's illegal. Use FedEx or UPS. Lots of bubble wrap and don't tell.

I use plastic bottles like these: http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/a...ase-of-24.html (don't forget to order screw caps!). It makes shipping safer AND less expensive. Bubble wrap is good, though I prefer "peanuts."

I've shipped liquid in champagne bottles in a double layer box of cardboard with no problem.
