What if it rained beer from the sky?

Our facilities writer, Don Muret, alerted us to a Billboard story about the potential for using drones to deliver beers:
Says Don: This story caught my eye because I love beer and the thought of having one drop gently from the sky at a concert is a very cool thing to consider. It also got me wondering if there is an application for this technology at sports events. The concept is not new. For many years, the Chicago Bulls, among other teams, have had remote-control mini-blimps dropping coupons to the crowd at United Center. But now, technology has been refined to the point where small drones can travel great distances before activation. Ask President Obama.
