Beer Drone Used to Deliver During Ice Fishing

CREATED Jan. 30, 2014

 STEVENS POINT, WI -- It's the dream of almost every angler out on the ice during fishing season and sturgeon spearing.

That dream may be a reality sooner than you think. Lakemaid Brewery out of Steven's Point has been testing at some of the best ice fishing lakes in Wisconsin and Minnesota and they say they've been seeing a lot of success. On the downside, the drone is still facing some obstacles including verifying the age of the customer. The FAA also has yet to issue regulations regarding commercial drones like this.

The company says they got the idea from Amazon.com's announcement that they were considering using drones to deliver packages faster.
