Air Travel with Beer
After this morning's unfortunate turn of events in today's world of terrorism, it appears that bringing beer on to an airplane will be practically impossible. Like nail clippers, this may last for a little while. The two alternatives, as of this morning, are to A) safely wrap and check into stowed baggage....and pray(!) ; or B) send home through a private courier. Will have to keep my eye on further developments as my next San Francisco trip is less than two weeks away and I have several ideas of what to bring home with me. Should be interesting......

I have a friend on a plane right now. I'm fairly positive that his carry-on was laden with beers this morning when he left. I'll be very curious to see what happened in his situation.
Here's some chatter over at BA regarding same topic:
And the official TSA update this morning....
Update: My friend made it through just fine. He had to check his carry-on that was full of beer, but luckily he had packed it well and everything landed without breakage. If you're travelling in the next few days I would definitely pack a dedicated "beer bag" that can survive a bumpy trip in the baggage hold.
Thanks for the update.....Beer travellers from around the world this morning are all reconsidering their plans of getting some souvenirs home from the road.
