Okay, I checked with the board mods, and they didn't have a problem with the premise of my posting. First and foremost, all parties have to be 21 or over, and live in a state where alcohol/BEER shipping is not prohibited. You know who you are, I'm sure, but just in case, here's a list of non-prohibition shipping states (mostly covers wine, but I'm guessing the same applies to the typically-lower alcohol by volume [ABV] of beer) ...
District Of Columbia
I really want to try Yuengling beer. I know, some people say it's not all that, but I'm in it for the experience. So please, commentary about how average it is not necessary here. I enjoy me some cheap, regional beers-- so sue me!
I figure a six pack of either Yuengling Premium or Traditional lager would work, and in exchange, I'll send a six pack of Firestone Double Barrel Ale ( http://www.firestonewalker.com/index.php?c=our_pale_ales ), which is an amazingly excellent ale brewed near me. No money is directly exchanged, just beer for beer. We each cover the outbound shipping costs ourselves, which brings me to the shipping ...
Various stuff on the web. Some of it seems to be accurate and sensible, some of it sketchy. At any rate, USPS is not an option. Uncle Sam is okay with taxing the bejesus out of it, but not in shipping it. Only FedEx or UPS, and you basically have to tell them you're shipping vinegar. Seems that while the interstate booze sales thing is okay from retailer to individual, they are hesitant to do the person-to-person transaction. That's fine, I have no problem fudging a manifest when it's to get around a dopey rule.
If you'd like to discuss in detail by private message, that's fine. I know I'm new here, but can provide a eBay feedback that shows I'm not a cheat. And to be fair to me, please be able to vouch the same.
And for those of you who also enjoy a cheapy beer, 7-11 has come out with their own brew (done by a macro craft brewer in LaCrosse, Wisconsin) called Game Time. Supposed to be rolled out through most of the states soon. Had some last night. It was better than ... no beer. Actually, the light was pretty good, the ice version sorta harsh.
