Can of draught Guinness on a plane - yes or no?
Draught Guinness in a can, with that widget thing inside it. Will it explode in checked baggage in the hold, or is it OK to take? Any first hand experience? Thanks.

esp if they are Walkers i imagine as they are just bags of air with a few potato crumbs in.

Planes use cans of beer etc on flights so can’t see a problem .

Chrisp packets can explode tho.

Make sure he sees the can, or he might just think it's local tap water.

Should be okay.

A bit surprised that you can't get a pint of Guinness in Kolkata. I'm pretty sure there were plenty of places in Mumbai earlier this year. I seem to recall an Irish pub I went into once I was appalled at how bad the food was but somewhat pleasantly surprised by their pints (though tbh not 100% sure whether it was Kilkenny or Guinness I had), although the price of said pints was somewhat ridiculous, even after having factored in teh Happy Hour 2-for-1 discount (I made sure not to remain after Happy Hour!)

As other have said, should be okay. Though you might wish to ziploc-bag a couple of cans and then wrap a towel inside just in case your baggage handlers turn out to be keen but inept jugglers/ use your suitcase to practice their throwing.

‘To I’ll to travel to the uk’

Er the Park Royal brewery closed 15 odd years ago .

It’s brewed in Dublin and Nigeria these days.

But why the fuck do you wanna take Guinness in a can?

An old boy now in his late 80s loves the stuff. He's too ill to travel back to the UK, so thought he might appreciate a can of the closest to the real thing.

Airplane holds are depressurised so it won't be a problem- I did a lot of work on that stuff when I was an Engineer. Those little mastic guns with the squeezy handles had butane in them and were shipped globally- I did a fuck load of work on them, product was featured on Tomorrow's World....But why the fuck do you wanna take Guinness in a can?

If it’s in a can it ain’t draught.

He could get coated in Guinness and then get arrested for cultural misappropriation.

I am just imagining the carnage if you opened one these in a plane cabin at altitude.

Maybe he's flying to somewhere where it isn't available and wants to provide a valuable gift to some african school kid who has to wheel his rusty punctured bike 3 miles to the nearest off-licence.

So long as the can remains intact, so should the widget.

They are triggered by the decrease in pressure in the can caused by opening it.

The real question is; why? Guinness is available virtually everywhere aircraft fly, if not in country, landside, then almost certainly in the Duty Free shops.
