    Does anyone have suggestions / experience on safely shipping beverages back to the states from Brussels? I know it will cost a pretty penny but any suggestions on where to ship from, get packing materials, etc. at reasonable rates would be appreciated. Thanks!

    This is the cheapest way from Belgium:

    In box up to 5 kilo you can pack 6 to 7 small beerbottles like Westvleteren/Struise/

    I don't know what you would like to ship but when you want to send bigger bottles such as the Cantillon/Drie Fonteinen there will only fit in two 75cl bottles and one 37,5 cl bottle in an max 5 kilo parcel.

    You can get bubblewrap and boxes in the postofficeshop. Just shoot me a BM if you have more questions.

    One tip; if you go to Germany after Belgium it is way better to ship there a parcel when it is above 5 kilo:
