I want to bring a growler of beer on my checked bag (not on-board). Growlers are generally 64 oz. According to Delta, I can bring alcohol that has been purchased after going through a security checkpoint, but doesn't say I can't bring it from outside on my checked bag.
I also know that there are drastic pressure changes for baggage on the plane. I don't want the growler to be a hazard, and I especially don't want it to explode all over my stuff.
According to the TSA website, it should be okay, but I'm still concerned.
Does anyone have experience traveling with growlers or other large glass containers of carbonated drink?
I am flying from Michigan to New Mexico, using Delta Airlines.
Update: I put it on my checked bag. I wrapped it in towels and stuffed it into my impromptu flimsy fabric bag after my suitcase's zipper broke the night before. The growler was completely fine, didn't leak and definitely didn't explode.
