Re: Driving beer cross country this weekend. Please help

Should not be an issue in that weather and in styrofoam boxes. Personally I’d just put them in lie flat boxes so they take up less space and put it inside the car with you while you drive so you worry even less. Then move the 3.5 cases with you into the hotel.
