Planning on buying some ‘cough medicine’ at the duty-free store after the security checkpoint? You’re limited to 5 liters of alcohol between 24%-70% ABV or 48 – 140 proof.
The bottles are packed in a transparent, secure, tamper-evident bag by the retailer. Don’t try to sneak a swig! If the bag looks opened or tampered with, then it won’t be allowed to fly in your carry-on bag. Keep the receipt! You must show that the alcohol was purchased within the last 48 hours.

How do you pack glass in checked luggage?
How to Pack Glass Bottles It’s advisable to pack only glass bottles that have never been opened. The materials needed to pack glass bottles are:
Plastic bags Bubble wrap Packing tape Empty toilet paper roll tubes Large sealable bags/Ziploc bags
To prevent spillage and leaks, wrap tape around the cap of the bottle a few times to make sure that the cap does not come off in transit. Wrap the bottle in bubble wrap to protect it from getting bounced and breaking in transit. This layer can withstand all the impact and will act as a shock-absorber.
If you are using smaller bubble wrap, make it a point to double wrap it and protect this layer with tape. For alternate options, you can roll the bottle in a large, soft garment or a towel. A sweater can also do the job. Seal the bottle in a self-sealing bag, make sure that you have pressed out all the air and the bag does not have any holes in it.
You can place the bottle in a normal plastic bag if you don’t have any self-sealing plastic bags. Wrap the plastic bag tightly and ensure that the plastic bag is airtight with tape. For additional protection, place the bag in another plastic bag, covering the opening of the first bag.
If you are sending the bottles with the mover, you should get a divided box. Tape the bottom of the box. It’s always better to line the inside bottom of the box with cardboard or bubble wrap. Check your box to make sure it will hold the weight of the bottles. Place the bottles that are packed in the sealed bag.
Wrap them with a sweater, old newspaper and/or cushioning materials. If you are taking the glass bottles in a suitcase, place them securely in the centre of your suitcase. Carefully cushion the bottles with clothes. In case you are flying and carrying the beverages with you, make sure to follow these guidelines: According to TSA, “You can’t take alcoholic beverages with more than 70% alcohol content (140 proof), including 95% grain alcohol and (150 proof) rum, in your checked luggage.
You may take up to five liters of alcohol with alcohol content between 24% and 70% per person as checked luggage if it’s packaged in a sealable bottle or flask.” While passing through the U.S Customs, you have to declare your alcoholic beverages. There is a probability that you will be asked to unpack your glass bottle when going through airport security to show the contents.
If you have to catch another flight, make sure that you are taking enough time to wrap the bottle back prior to placing it in your suitcase again. : How to Pack Glass Bottles
How many cans of beer is 5 liters?
Keg Sizes and Types – These different keg sizes each have different purposes and will be used in different situations, but if you know what you’re getting into, it will help you make an informed decision about what kind of kegerator you need to maximize your draft beer enjoyment.
Alternate Names: Corny Keg, Homebrew Keg, Soda Keg The tall, cylindrical (or Corny Keg) was originally developed (and still used) to store, distribute, and dispense soda like Pepsi or Coke. However, with a five-gallon capacity (the size of a typical homebrew batch) and a design that’s easy to fill, clean, and maintain, Corny Kegs have become very popular with homebrewers who want to skip the process of bottling beer and enjoy their brew on draft. Most Cornelius Kegs utilize a style connection, but some older models still feature a pin-lock style.
Pints (16 oz) of beer per keg: Approx.40 Cans / Bottles (12oz) per keg: Approx.53 Capacity: 5 gallons / 18 liters / 640 ounces Dimensions: 23″ x 9″
Alternate Names: Sixtel, 1/6 Barrel, 1/6 BBL A standard Sixth Barrel Keg (⅙ Barrel) is very similar in size, shape, and capacity to a Cornelius Keg but just a little bit bigger (5.16 gallon capacity vs.5.0 in a Corny Keg). The main difference is that this style doesn’t utilize a ball or pin-lock connection system but a traditional keg valve that requires a for dispensing.
Barrels (or sixtels, as they’re often called) have become increasingly popular because many craft brewers offer their small-batch experiments only in kegs of this size. Furthermore, many beer-minded restaurateurs that want to offer their customers a wide variety will opt for Sixth Barrel Kegs because they take up less space than their bigger brothers.
If you opt for a in your home, you’ll have plenty of options to serve on tap because you can fit two of these in one standard kegerator cabinet.
Pints of beer per keg: Approx.41 Cans / Bottles (12oz) per keg: Approx.55 Capacity: 5.16 gallons / 20 liters / 661 ounces Dimensions: 23⅜” x 9¼”
Alternate Names: Pony Keg, Stubby Quarter, 1/4 BBL The Quarter Barrel Keg (AKA Pony Keg or Stubby Quarter) looks like the standard beer keg you’re used to from keg parties but much shorter (hence the “stubby” description). It’s 7.75 gallons and perfect for small parties.
Pints of beer per keg: Approx.62 Cans / Bottles (12oz) per keg: Approx.82 Capacity: 7.75 gallons / 30 liters / 992 ounces Dimensions: 13⅞” x 16⅛”
Alternate Names: Tall Quarter, Slim 1/4 BBL This tall, slender keg holds the exact same amount as its stubbier relative, the Quarter Barrel Keg. Much like a ⅙ Barrel, the dimensions of this keg make it a popular choice for people with, but it holds 7.75 gallons, making it more than two gallons larger than a sixtel.
Pints of beer per keg: Approx.62 Cans / Bottles (12oz) per keg: Approx.82 Capacity: 7.75 gallons / 30 liters / 992 ounces Dimensions: 23⅜” x 11⅛”
Alternate Names: Full Size Keg, Full Keg, 1/2 BBL The granddaddy of them all, the 15.5 gallon Half Barrel Keg is probably what you picture when you think of a beer keg. This vessel has been used to distribute macro brews for generations, and if you’re reading this, you’ve likely served yourself a red Solo cup or two from one of these beauties.
Pints of beer per keg: Approx.124 Cans / Bottles (12oz) per keg: Approx.165 Capacity: 15.5 gallons / 58.7 liters / 1,984 ounces Dimensions: 23⅜” x 16⅛”
Alternate Names: Import Keg, European Barrel, 50 Liter A 50 Litre Keg is used by European Breweries and is similar in size to its American cousin, the Half Barrel Keg. This is the most common keg size in European countries, including the UK. Popular import brands in the US include Heineken, Newcastle, Hoegaarden and Stella Artois.
Pints (16oz) of beer per keg: Approx.105 Cans / Bottles (12oz) per keg: Approx.140 Capacity: 13.2 gallons / 50 liters / 1,690 ounces Dimensions: 20.94″ x 16.06″
Alternate Names: None Having a shape similar to a small barrel, a Mini Keg is a perfect option for a small gathering of friends where you might normally bring a 12-pack. The 5-liter mini keg holds about 14 12-ounce pours. The most popular and easy-to-find version of this keg style is Heineken mini kegs, which contain a CO2 canister to dispense the beer.
Pints (16oz) of beer per keg: Approx.10 Cans / Bottles (12oz) per keg: Approx.14 Capacity: 1.32 gallons / 5 liters / 1,69 ounces Dimensions: 9 ⅞” x 6 ¾”
Does beer need to be in a bag?
Answer – Stores may insist that liquor sales be bagged, but no law requires it. “It’s the law” is a myth. A company policy might require bagging liquor as proof of purchase. But it’s legal to exit a store showing a bottle of booze. To confirm this, I contacted the Illinois Liquor Control Commission.
- They said: “It may be that some local jurisdictions require alcohol to be bagged, but there is no state bagging law.” Neither Champaign nor Urbana requires it.
- The closest that either town’s code comes is a Champaign provision.
- It says “no person shall carry open containers of alcoholic liquor out of any liquor service premises.” But the “container” they’re talking about is the can or bottle that came from the people who make the alcohol.It is not the bag the store puts the container into when you buy it.
Urbana says “original package” is the manufacturer’s:
Bottle Flask Jug Can Barrel Keg Hogshead Another receptacle
It is illegal for drivers to “transport” open containers of alcohol. That’s the offense of illegal transportation of alcohol in a motor vehicle. It’s also illegal for either drivers or passengers to “carry, possess, or have” open containers. That’s the illegal possession of alcohol in a motor vehicle.
They’re two different offenses. A driver could commit both. A driver transports alcohol illegally when a passenger possesses alcohol illegally. Two things must combine to make transportation or possession illegal. First, the alcohol is NOT in “the original container and with the seal unbroken.” Second, the alcohol is “within the passenger area of any motor vehicle upon a highway.” My expert tells me loose cans or bottles are legal, even removed from their original package.
As long as each can or bottle has never been opened, it’s okay. A cooler full of never-opened beer, in the passenger area, is legal. What’s the “passenger area”? Our Attorney General stated in 1976 that it’s “that portion of a motor vehicle which is primarily designed for or which is adapted or devoted to the carrying of passengers.” That includes “any area of the motor vehicle which is readily accessible to the driver or a passenger.” Trunks are often okay for opened containers.
But maybe it wouldn’t be okay if a folded down back seat makes the trunk “accessible.” Vans? My expert said “a locked box or closed cooler in the far back end of the van” likely would avoid a ticket for, But, it would have to be if “no one’s draping their arm over the back seat.” Accessibility, he emphasized, really comes down to the facts of the case.
If you’re 21 or over, illegal transportation is a moving violation, with 25 “points.” A second offense within 12 months suspends your license. If you’re under 21, the first illegal transportation suspends your license; the second one revokes it. Alcohol carry-out and delivery Businesses that sell alcohol can now offer pickup and delivery of mixed drinks.

Will alcohol break in luggage?
Your Bottle Ended Up Breaking. Now What? – Despite our best efforts, sometimes alcohol bottles can still break while on the move. This can result in stains and odors on suitcases. But according to the experts, there are some easy ways to remove them. “For spot-treating colored stains like red wine on a fabric suitcase, apply a few drops of Dawn Platinum dish soap directly to the stain and use your fingers to rub it in,” says Morgan Brashear, home care senior scientist at Procter & Gamble,
- Give it a few minutes to soak in, then add a little water and scrub gently with your fingers or a clean cloth until the stain and suds are gone.” If the stain is on the luggage itself, you have some options for cleaning it, too.
- If spills on fabric luggage are more smelly than seen, Brashear recommends trying Febreze Fabric Refresher to eliminate the odors at the source.
Drink spills can also leave behind dried, sticky stains on hard plastic suitcases. For these messes, “Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is a one-step solution for removing the gunk and other dirt and grime,” says Brashear. “If your luggage has a high shine finish, always test in a small, inconspicuous area first, and apply light pressure to keep the finish intact.”
Can you take alcohol on international flights in checked baggage?
Alcohol in Your Checked Bags – The TSA rules are more lenient about what type of alcohol, and how much of it, you can put in your checked bags. But don’t try to pack anything with more than 70 percent alcohol content; it’s not allowed in your checked baggage.
- You can pack as much alcohol as you like if it contains less than 24 percent alcohol – think wine and beer.
- If your bottles have between 24 and 70 percent alcohol content, you can pack as much as 5 liters (1.3 gallons) in your checked luggage, as long as the bottles you’re using can be sealed.
- Tip The regulations of your destination country may differ.
Check the U.S. Department of State’s country information pages for more information on restricted items; if you’re still not sure how much alcohol is allowed (if any), contact the U.S. embassy in your destination country. If you’re traveling with a local or regional air carrier abroad, it’s a good idea to confirm their policies regarding alcohol too.
