3 Beer Bottle Shipping Boxes
« on: May 29, 2016, 12:18:59 AM »
Has anyone tried these?

I'm thinking about ordering some for sending beer to comps.

And it's too near the bone

Thanks for sharing. I just got my bottles returned from Ballast Point since one broke. Damn it.

I also found these:

But shipping was way more than they are worth.

I've contemplated buying beer shippers before, but the shipping to get the dang things racks up the cost. I wish my lhbs would stock some.

I use their 12 bottle shipper for sending beer to competitions. Works great. No broken bottles. Even gave a 12 pack to a buddy who flew home with them as a checked bag. No broken bottles for him either.

Lots easier than trying to cobble together something on your own that may or may not work.

With shipping, they are about $4.60 each, which seems worth it to me.  I'm going to order some.

Really nice shippers.   Fortunately for me, they are located 30 minutes away so I can avoid the shipping cost.

Finally got around to buying some of these; they're great.

Pricey, but haven't had trouble shipping bottles out three times now. (Spirited shipper)
