Hi all,

I remember seeing a new company advertised that would ship "fresh beer" from the brewer to your house, but I cannot find them online.

Anyone know the company I am talking about?

Thanks for your help!

There are at least a dozen reputable ones. Here's a list: http://www.ratebeer.com/mailorder.asp
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I know that there are many states that do not allow shipments of alcohol via the mail. I have a family member who owns a winery and he can't ship to some family members in other states. Does anyone know if this applies to homebrew as well?  I believe the laws were set up so that minors could not get their hands on it.  For example Texas does not allow direct shipment of alcohol...if I ship beer to a contest in Texas am I breaking the law? I figure if anyone knows it would be somebody at the AHA.

USPS does not allow alcohol.

Fedex and UPS will ship licensed establishment's products to states that allow it.

Homebrew? No that is yeast samples. Homemade BBQ sauce/marinaide. Homemade vinegar.  ;)

I think it may also be that for some states it's only allowed with a license of some sort.  I've looked at other places that won't ship beer to Virginia, but Beerjobber does.

To be clear, all of those do not go USPS, just in case.

Glassware.  Oh, there's homebrew inside?  That's just packing material.

Haven't used them yet, but Let's Pour ( http://www.letspour.com/deals?deal_type=beer ) is worth looking into. I know I'm planning on buying from them If I can't get Brux in my area, or if they ever get Pliny.
