Is it ok to put beers in your suitcase? The suitcase will be in the luggage compartment on a long haul flight.

Cheers
Alan

Yep! Just pack íem safe and tight! Luggage handlers are the only people who care less about what you packed than the USPS.

Yep. Just make sure you pack it up well because you donít want to ruin all of your clothes and belongings.

Iíve flown from across the Atlantic three times now with beer and it never froze, so it should be fine.

Ive put 12 bombers in one suitcase before. I bought those giant ziplock bags and bubble wrap. My wife said it looked like an episode of Dexter because I had all this plastic and tape/scissors spread out over the hotel room when I was packing it up.

They have taken mine out and looked at them before, but Iíve never lost any bottles or broken any. 12oz bottle fit nicely in shoes if you have decent sized feet.

Absolutely! Iíve done it many times. On top of what others have suggested, I say make sure theyíre wrapped in some plastic bags (yes, plural) so if they break you donít end up with beery clothes, then wrap them in a shirt or something and pack them tightly amongst other soft clothes. You should be fine.

Iíve checked a 12-styro shipper as luggage before and it worked great.
