Default Beer packaging for air travel

Alright fellow brewers I am in need of some information about form fitting packaging for beer bottles. I am planning on taking a few of my homebrews on an airplane ride to Denver in about 3 weeks and need to find packaging so they don't get broken. So please any info will be appreciated.

My mom took some of mine back last time she visited. Just wrapped them in bubble wrap and put them in big zip lock bags. They arrived safely.

Did you check the beer. It was my understanding that they don’t pressurize the luggage area. Wouldn’t your beer explode? I was wanting to take a 12 pack of home brew with me on a plane for thanks giving.

Feel free to put them in a box and ship them to me, I'll take good care of them until you get here!

I am going to Ohio for Xmas, I have a Sam Adams 12 pack box thatI'm gonna load up with pumpkin ale (and maybe some stout), and just pack newspaper in between everything, and then pack it in the middle of my luggage. Barring some serious abuse, I think that will be fine. I will also wrap a plastic bag or 2 around the box to prevent any possible liquid or broken glass from escaping into my luggage. And I think I have read in past posts that the pressure, or lack thereof, has no effect.

I say you avoid the airport and just ship them ahead of time...UPS.

I am pretty sure they do pressurize the luggage hold. If they didn't anything sealed (shampoo, pens, your favorite pet) would explode.

I have taken a lot of beer with me, checked in my suitcase. I wrapped everything with some type of clothing and padded the top/bottom/sides of the bag with more clothes. Everything came through great.

This was my haul last time:

I brought 15 beers back from Europe with no problems. Just stuffed them in socks and rolled them up in my cloths.
