Selling Limited Edition/Regional Beer on eBay

There's no other way to put it, but people love beer. That's why Micro-Breweries are popping up everywhere in the US. There are thousands of Beer festivals every year in every state. Heck I even subscribe to Draft Magazine.
Brewers are always coming out with new brews in limited editions and most are only sold regionally. So eBay is a great place to resell some of these beers if they are available in your region.
Some of the more popular breweries that release limited editions that do well are
Sierra Nevada
Sam Adams
Russian River
Brooklyn Brewery
Limited edition beers are typically released in 750ml bottles. So you won't find these sold in 6 packs they will be sold individually.
Of course you are not selling these to drink, you are selling them because they are collectible. You must list the item in the collectible category and state the following in your auction
– The value of the item is in the collectible container, not its contents.
– The container has not been opened and any incidental contents are not intended for consumption.
– The item is not available at any retail outlet.
–The seller will take all appropriate steps to ensure that the buyer is of lawful age in the buyer’s and seller's jurisdiction. In general, this is 21 years of age.
– Both the buyers and sellers ensure that the sale complies with all applicable laws and shipping regulations
