Shipping Beer

(1/9) > >>

esheppy:
I know that the USPS will not ship beer.  I am pretty sure FedEx and UPS only ship beer if you are a company that specifically signs a contract with them.  As far as I know, the only way to ship home brew is to lie about what is being shipped.

Does anyone out there have a way to legally get your beer shipped without breaking the law?  Maybe some other less known shipping company?

tschmidlin:
It is not illegal to ship beer to most states with FedEx or UPS, just against their policy.  Call it "yeast samples" or "gifts" or something like that.

I don't know of any shipper that has a policy of knowingly taking beer from individuals.

Agreed.

I use UPS regularly and I tell them that I am shipping glassware.

I setup a personal UPS account, print my label at home, and bring the box into the office for the daily UPS pickup...no issues ever.

Yeah, they don't even ask any questions, so there's no reason to lie.  You can create an account on-line and use a drop off point, like a local office supply store.
