Lol that's awesome! Well, as far as bjcp goes. I'm a rhg Nazi though. Water, barley, hops, maybe yeast. Anything else is verboten!

I sometimes wonder at our collective mentality that businesses should just accept our defiance and that we shouldn't be expected to read the fine print on the ticket, agreeing to the contract of the what is accepted practice.

Sorry for the rant. I mean no offense. Its an $8 fix to a multimillion dollar problem is all...

Would we disregard BJCP guidelines or the Reinheitsgebot with such wanton? I think not!  I rest my case. No further questions your honor

putting it in your checked baggage is at least as legal as shipping. USPS = federal crime, UPS/FedEx = against corporate rules, Airline checked bags = I've never seen anything in the fine print that says I can't put beer in there. or glass, or anything, heck I could put a gun in there as long as it's not loaded and I declare it.

We have a right to guns, not beer. Though if you properly exercise one right you create the other.

My point is that the airplane is private property.  They can limit whatever they choose to limit. We can try to sneak past that but no whimper if they catch you.

I've never done any 'sneaking' to get beer in my checked baggage. Southwest's rules actually allow for it - just put them in bubble wrap. If you don't have bubble wrap, they'll sell you bottle sleeves right at the counter for $5 a pop. The counter ladies have even packed it for me before.

If you ever go to Germany and see them mixing beer with juice or soda in the glass, you might think again about the relevance of it. :)  There's nothing wrong with just using the specified ingredients, but neither is there anything wrong with adding other things too.

I'm more inclined to reference the BJCP guidelines if only to make it easier to describe the beer to people.  And they are more or less required if you plan to compete.  You don't need to follow them though, follow your palate.
