That may apply to beer sent from the US (but who would want that anyway ?),
but what about beer sent from within the EU ?
We had no problems brining beer into Sweden this summer, but I don't know
if Finnland's customs are different from the swedish ones.

Exporting beer from Finnland doesn't seem to be that much of a hassle,
as the Lenigrad Cowboys brought a lot of their brew to the concerts in
