Shipping craft beer...

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Has anybody shipped craft beer with their personal effects.

Im trying to see how much tax I would be liable to pay. 

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

How well would craft beer travel?   It's going to be in a container that has to travel through widely varying temperatures for many weeks on a rocking, rolling ship. 

If I had a crate of beer in my car at 40 degree heat on a dirt road for a few hours, I'd be worried - so I'm not sure how it would survive in the container. 

Duty on alcohol is high, so I very much doubt it would be worth it.

It feels like the sort of thing that would get "randomly" opened to "test" and most likely "confiscated" and "destroyed" by customs agents

in the above

randomly = seeked out

test = drunk

confiscated = taken home

destroyed = invite mates round for a party
