We currently only ship internationally to Canada via Fedex. No other international shipping is currently available. We will ship to international couriers, but please note our shipments are packaged only for domestic shipping and Upper Hand Brewery releases all responsibility for a package once tracking shows it was delivered to the domestic address provided.

Non-Contiguous US Shipping

Upper Hand Brewery does ship to AK/HI/PR, military addresses (APO/FPO/LPO) and most US territories. Shipping quotes & times may be higher than expected so please contact us with special situations by using the contact forms below. You are responsible for making sure your order is compliant with all shipping/customs regulations wherever you are. While we do our best to ensure your order is packaged sufficiently, Bell’s General Store Online will not be responsible for damaged/destroyed or lost packages sent to non-continental addresses. We do not suggest buying fragile/perishable items for overseas shipping. Buy at your own risk!

*Dimensional weight notice –  Because of how shipping charges are calculated by the various carriers, some item’s displayed weights are based on a calculation of the dimensions (length, width, and height) of an item instead of the actual weight of an item.  Items that are affected by this are generally lighter in weight but larger in size, such as Ale Pail Buckets and plastic carboys, which cost more to ship because of their size.
