Luggage limit (meaning you can take up without having to go through our local Alcohol Distribution Site) is either

1 gallon of malt beverage,
2 liters of wine, or
1 liter of distilled spirits.

Taking it through your luggage also means that you don't need an alcohol permit. Now to ship some up here require you to get an alcohol permit and to either be working here or to be a resident and the limits then are:

Malt Beverage - 11.25 Gallons OR 5 cases + 8 pk.
Wine - 20 Liters OR 26 750ml. bottles
Distilled Spirits - 4.5 Liters OR 6 750ml. bottles

On top of getting a permit, you also have to pay a fee to get it out of our local distribution site. It is a $15 handling fee + 3% tax on your total order without freight. That handling fee is to soon be raised. Everyone seems to have a hand in the

Why in the world would you spend one year in a place if you "needed to be drinking". My guess is that you were here for the money, locked yourself up in your home and never left it for anything other than work, and complained about it the whole time.

Good god.....we don't need this type of person.
