Beer question

    A friend did a good thing for me, and I'd like to send him a token of my esteem. About 10 years ago another friend shipped to me as a Christmas present a bucket of beer, a variety from all over, and it arrived cold in dry ice. It was a hell of a gift, and I'd like to do something like that in this instance.

    Does anyone know where I can buy an interesting assortment of beers and have it shipped like that?

    JD:

    What, a six-pack of Jax isn't good enough?

    I think federal regulations prohibit breweries from mailing beer. At least this one does, which otherwise would be my best suggestion:

    Go to your local Wal-Mart and buy a six of each. Find six friends, or just one and waste yourself over a period of three or four days. Just consider the ol' saying: Give and ye shall receive.

    Is it possible to actually ship liquor/beer? A friend of mine in Colorado attempted to send me a six-pack of 90 Shilling for my birthday last year and I received a letter in the mail that said the contents had been confiscated by the U.S. Postal Service.

    Of the confiscation, my friend said, "Those bastards! They probably drank it all in Denver!"

    Still, that's a damn good friend to send me some 90.

    i think almost all states forbid shipping beer but i could be wrong. the only thing i've ever seen online where you can order beer by mail is beer-of-the-month club. not sure how it gets around the restriction. i've often wanted to mail order beer from microbreweries and you'd have to think that if it was legal, pretty much every microbrewery would offer it.

    I wonder how my friend was able to find a company to ship that bucket of beer to me in 1997. Hmm. Oh, well.

    Thanks, all.

    There are several sites out there that will ship beer, but it depends on the laws in the receipt's state.

    I do most of my business at <url>www.beergeek.biz</url>.

    And that's a hell of a gift idea.

    You can, but you're taking quite a risk.
    As would be the sender.

    I don't know if they do this down there at all, but up here, I know you can have beer delivered to your door, much like ordering a pizza, although you usually pay through the nose for the delivery. It might be worth checking into.
