    Will Bottled Beer Burst On a Plane Flight?

    I'm concerned my friend wants to bring home a 12-pack in her suitcase and check in on the plane. Won't the pressure differential cause it to burst?

    Anybody every try it?

    Depends. Is the plane on a treadmill?

    I've done it. It doesn't burst. Make sure it is in the checked luggage though.

    BTW - isn't this illegal? Transporting liquor across state lines? It's not for resale, but still........

    I brought home several bottles of beer and wine from my trips to Europe and never checked them and never had any issues.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Never heard of that before. Unless you are on probation or something.

    Re: Will Bottled Beer Burst On a Plane Flight?

    How are the imported beers shipped to the U.S.? Wouldn't you presume that the imported beers are shipped by plane?

    Re: Will Bottled Beer Burst On a Plane Flight?

    I had some rum bottles come open, and I did lose 2 out of 10 Wadadli bottles (Antigua beer).

    So yes, it can happen.

    I would guess that those are packed and shipped a little different than someone bringing some beer back from Philly.

    No the baggage area is pressurized the same as the cabin. I love beer.

    Re: Will Bottled Beer Burst On a Plane Flight?

    Check with the airline's website as for legality (some allow you to transport alcohol, some don't).

    A couple of years ago, a bunch of us brought back 14 bottles of wine back from New Mexico. Wrapped each one individually, split them up between people's luggage, no problems.
