Beer Drone Grounded For Now
DETROIT (97.1 THE TICKET) – Beer delivered by drone?
Perhaps one of the greatest inventions ever has been grounded for now…
While you may have gotten your hopes up – the government has stepped in to dash those frothy dreams.
According to the Detroit News, the Federal Aviation Administration informed Lakemaid Beer that it currently prohibits small businesses from using drones shortly after the brewer posted video of a test run last week on Lake Waconia, located in Minnesota west of the Twin Cities.
Saying that the FAA is widely expected to release new drone regulations by 2015, but Lakemaid would also have to implement a system to remotely verify age before it could deliver beer to buyers.
