I have been successful at bringing up to 36 bottles home in one trip from Holland. Proper packaging techniques are required. Make sure each bottle is individually wrapped and placed in such a way that it will not move around. Also you want to make sure that the TSA or foreign security screeners cant screw it up. There is nothing worse than taking an hour to pack your bag and then some uneducated (in the ways of packing) or unappreciative bone head unpacks your stuff and just jams it back in the suitcase, creating a giant CF or worse yet a pile of broken glass and wet smelly clothes. I have carried over 200 bottles of homebrew and commercial beer around the world and the worst thing that happened was some wet jeans due to caps that were not crimped properly or the swing cap got pushed open on the heel of my shoe. good luck. I also carry a second bag in my large bag just in case I see something that I must have in my collection. With baggage fees the way they are right now this is problematic though.
