I am not normally a beer drinker so I can only follow others' suggestions on here on how to sneak it onboard...I prefer hard liquor...it gets me "there" quicker. I went to WalMart and got some plastic travel type of bottles - over in the pharmacy area and little travel size bottles - I put my alcohol in those...in a few zip lock baggies and put that inside my checked luggage. Not to mention, if you are travelling with people that don't ordinarily imbibe, then this might help the embarrassment factor as well. 8) No problems. Sorry, just can't pay over $5.00 for a brand name shot....not happening. Plus I can mix up anything I want, whenever I want.
