What! I stand them up and pack them tight. You can use some foam padding if necessary.

I have spent the majority of my working career so far in beer distribution. It amazes me how much bashing and banging the typical case of beer gets before it reaches the consumer...with VERY few casualties relatively speaking. Based on this, you probably don't need anything extra. Anyway...my sugestions for you are either some "6 pack carriers" or the cardboard crosses that (used to?) come in 12, 18, 20, and 24 pack bottles. I think the 6 pack carriers will work better than the latter when laid on their side.

I like the aluminum bottles when camping, but these may not be available depending on your brand of choice and location.

I tried using cans while camping. I just don't like the taste.
I think the 6pack carriers is a good idea though. Thanks.

Will the outside fridge keep them cold enough? When I had my SAQ the outside fridge was good enough for soda pop, but not cold enough for beer.

If they're rattling, clearly you don't have enough. I suggest buying more to fill in the gaps... Remember those cold soldiers like to group tight.

I put mine in a separate ice chest in the basement.

Drink one and see if they stop rattling. If you still hear it drink another. Repeat until you locate the culprit.

My outside kitchen fridge works ok in the summer, but with all the water and pop we keep in there that is room temp prior, it is harder to keep really cold. I try to always keep a few in a cooler with ice, as I like my beer really cold.

Luckily for us one of our neighbors at our seasonal got a sonic type, ice maker that everyone can use. In return I get him a 30 pack from time to time.

Could have used a better beer than Bud for modeling.

Not sure about the green bottles.
