    hi,
    new to the forum & have a question : I would like to send some beers (about 12 small bottles) to a friend who lives in New York, but I'm getting/reading different opinions on the internet, going from "I do this every day" to "the most illegal & impossible ever".

    anyone able to help me out, provide me with an answer??? (legal, illegal, possible, impossible... and with who to work in case of possibility - ups, dhl, postal services... )

    kind regards from Belgium
    peter

    Hey Peter!

    It is not legal to ship beers to the States but.........we all do it and most of the time without any problem. I usually ship my beers with the description 'collectible glassware vinnegar' and i keep the price as low as possible. If you describe it as beer chances are very big they confiscate the parcel.

    I have shipped more than 500 parcels to the States and with 5 of them there were trouble. That means you have a risk of one percent....

    Gewoon met B-Post en 'Collectable Glassware' => nog nooit problemen gehad !

    Wel héél goed inpakken want ik denk dat de dozen via Egypte passeren voor ze naar USA gaan !
