Shouldn't there be a sticky about this somewhere? It's asked nearly every month.

That being said, I'm always interested in good replies.

I've sent beer to three comps. I've used USPS every time, and it has always made it.

I don't recommend this, but I'll do it until my package gets broken and I go to jail or something. I can plead ignorance with the best of them.

I guess I got lucky recently.

Last week a buddy in South Carolina who couldn't get this year's Vertical Epic asked if I could ship some from Colorado. I abliged, I also decided to put in a bomber of my yet to be sampled Belgian Style Strong Golden I had just bottled. The Vertical epic made it, but my buddy got a message from FedEx saying in a slow southern drawl "that the packaged arrived to them soaking wet and it smelled like an alcoholic beverage". They repacked the good one and sent it on. Phew!

Since I hadn't tried one of these yet myself. I wanted to see if I was to blame. Yes. I overcarbed. Not bottle bombs, but a minor gusher. Apparently this doesn't travel well.

Also thanks for posting the right way to ship to international competition.

Default the law

in order to ship beer legally by any method you have to first apply for a liscense with the state you are shipping from. This is regulated by the TTB. Here is the link for the individual state contacts to do so.

http://www.ttb.gov/wine/state-ABC.shtml

the catch is the cost. in addition the person you are shipping beer to also has to have a liscense.

$$$

this being said, and as mentioned in other posts on this subject, and as Nike says, "Just Do It" unless you are on a millitary base.

there are no solid laws on what happens if you do as of yet.

I think this only applies to a retailer or someone selling the beer. Not someone sending it to a friend or relative.
