No, no guys. The evening choice is beer and peanuts.

Wow! I couldn't agree with you more! Strong coffee in the morning and to finish off the day with smoke and peat... heaven.

I do imbibe in a beer or two in the evening, but I like beer in the heat of the day most. My wife though, would be all over the beer, and definitely the peanut thing.

I have a Bowmore, Laphroaig, Lagavulin, and Ardbeg in the cabinet, and at least one of them, or maybe another purchase, will be coming along with me to the rally.

Oooo, another single malt person! I should have a Balvenie 15 with me, if it lasts until then. Have been reading up on the entry restrictions for those of us south of the 49th parallel...pretty grim. Between my scotch and my lady friend's gin, we may be leaving money in Canada!

If you don't get carried away, I'd not worry about it.
I've driven my well-stocked trailer over the border and back ( with the same liquor supply ) a few times.
If asked, coming back to Canada, I tell them what I bought. They don't ask what I dragged into the US and back.
Maybe I just got lucky.

You are allowed 1.5 litres of spirits per person. I have doubled that and they just waved me through. Only if you have an excessive amount is it worth their trouble to charge the duty on it.

How many six packs of beer does that work out to be? I can figure ounces, but litres
