Basic advices: Declare the box content as being anything but food or liquids and declare it being worth less than $20. Make sure there is no sloshing sounds and pack well. I usually declare it as being books and worth $0 (and a gift).

I saw this and thought to myself "what beer is worth Canada"...my strange brain wiring aside definitely make sure its under $20, make sure to include the right number of items, label as a gift, and if there is a harmonized code then make sure to use it (only know about this for fedex not sure about for other ways).

4 successful trades in the last three months, no customs pain (yet). I usually declare a combination of the old standard "collectible glassware" and "homemade ornaments" and always declare the correct number of bottles. Has worked so far.

Last shipment I did to Canada, I declared the bottles to be about a few bucks each, and it backfired. Customs didnít buy that shit and wanted proof of actual value, which I didnít have, so they sent it back. I had to repack and ship it back again, this time putting the actual beer price on the form, and it worked.
I promised myself Iíll never ship to Canada again, since customs has gotten real dick about it.
My advice would be to have your recipient take a little hit as far as customs taxes, and you declare a decent value on the package, so customs doesnít get suspicious.
