    What are some of the best shops that you use to ship beer legitimately? I know of some like Archer Liquors that ships pre-made boxes of beer but wondering if anyone has some to suggest. I like trading on BA but sometimes it's nice to just put an order in and have it delivered. I recently ordred a few Parabola from a shop in WA I found by searching online. I would assume there are now quite a few out there. Any good ones worth mentioning?

    I'm not familiar with any other than one I found in the Carolina's - Charleston Beer Exchange. Large inventory, but hit or miss whether or not they have what you want in stock. Mind sharing the store in Wa.?

    The beer temple in Chicago, Leukens liquors in FL, and letspour are all solid.

    France 44 and CraftShack have been nothing less than stellar for me. I'm still trying out a few more.

    I use Bine &Vine to ship Christmas gifts. I've been happy with the selection and the results.

    I had a great experience with Bine and Vine recently so I highly recommend them.

    Thanks I'll check them out. I've seen Quality Liquor Store before but it always seemed to be really high prices, min 12 per order and they're generally out of stock of anything good. Have you had better luck?

    I'm just surprised to see posts about beers people are looking to trade for or making comments about not being able to find when there are places online you can order from. I was looking for Parabola, googled it, found a site and ordered a few (in addtion to Sucaba) in like 10 min.

    Trading is a lot of fun but if i can just find a site, fill a cart, purchase and be done with it - that's a lot easier and the shipping cost is usually about the same.

    I will say i've seen online stores charging like $40 shipping, $25 for the box?!, $15 for "handling", etc. If you're going to charge $80 for shipping & handling it's not worth it.

    Just had a great delivery from The Beer Temple. Definitely worth it.
