I looked but could only find bottles, i have been mad busy lately but managed to run in quick to a big Supermarket. I'd have to have a look at a smaller offlicense, but i couldn't get to one til Tuesday. Which means a wednesday post, even if they have any...

i'm sure posting a small crate wouldn't raise suspicion, glass bottles might though.

These are just gonna get stopped going through two customs checks, food and beverage laws. Worth a shot, but I suspect some staff at customs will be cracking them open :)

I'd love to see those bottles/cans arrive on the other side though :)

Here's a list of the top 20 bevs. Maybe an alternative in there. Sierra Nevada sounds nice.

Sheesh even online retailers won't ship it to NA. Been searching around and Amstel reg is easily found but, getting it to NA is a different matter.

Check this out, the guy out a whole crate of beer through :)

So it seems it's not too difficult, mailing might be different. Ziplock bag each bottle and plenty of foam in between. Do not mark the package as beer, mark as gift, and let it fly and see what happens :)

I have a friend that's currently visiting his family in Ireland.  If he has enough room in his luggage to stowaway some contraband, he's going to bring some back to the US.  If that falls through, I'll let you know.  I <3 Failed.   :-*

@Neato. I don't thiink your friend will have any trouble getting some Amstel through Irish customs. If they can get Semtex, Ak 47's and a few sniper rifles in and out the country, There should be no problem with a few bottles of beer. ;)
