To the amusement of ground staff at Melbourne airport, the can of Emu Export Lager was tagged and made its way along the conveyor belt to the plane as the only check-in item for passenger Dean Stinson on Saturday.
The high-flyer said he concocted the plan with a friend who worked at the airport "just for a laugh", adding he was pleasantly surprised that his precious cargo survived the four-hour journey to Perth.
"I thought it was bloody great!" he told AFP about the safe arrival of the beer. "And it was in perfect condition."
