Traveling with Beer: A Success Story
Ok, without being too dramatic...Mission Accomplished! Five beers successfully transported via checked luggage on US Airways to San Francisco. I'm only excited because I've never done this before and was quite skeptical that at least one bottle wouldn't arrive either broken or stolen. I'd previously only ever carried beer on to a flight with my carry-on luggage. But, after a thin layer of styrofoam and bubble wrap, each bottle was inserted and sealed into a sandwich bag. Then, each bottle was shoved into a shoe and covered over by a piece of clothing. (Except for the bomber, which had to be placed between clothing items. Now, I'm looking forward to trying this again on the return home with a new stash for personal consumption. Stay tuned...
