There is a House of Representatives bill pending that if passed would allow shipment of alcohol beverages through the US Postal Service. Currently alcohol beverages may only be shipped through a common carrier such as UPS or FedEx. If the legislation passes the ban on shipping through the mail would be lifted, and products could be mailed by individuals and entities permitted to ship alcohol beverages. State laws regarding shipping and delivering alcohol beverages to a person’s home, including age verification, would still apply.

If you have questions about the bill or generally about shipment of alcohol beverages, please contact Adena Santiago.
