Thanks to 3D printing, draft beer can be served on airplanes

draft beer at KLM

The aeronautical company KLM has just launched a press release that is sure to be liked by all passengers who usually use its services to travel, especially the more brewers. As you can read, it seems that the company has managed to create, thanks to 3D printing, a very special cart equipped with a system capable of producing draft beer on demand.

As in all good news, there is also its bad part since, according to the company itself, this draft beer will only be served to passengers in certain special flights o on the occasion of some events. As for beer, tell you that it is pressurized by air and not by CO2 gas due to the fact that it cannot be used on board due to safety problems. The beer stays fresh thanks to an airtight container.

KLM has developed a special cart to offer draft beer on demand

As you can see in the images both in the header and located in the gallery at the end of this entry, or directly in the video above these lines, the container has the Heineken seal and this is so since, according to the company Dutch, the beer to be served in flight contains the same ingredients as that used by Heineken for the product that is served worldwide.

The pressurized beer was served in flight for the first time on August 31, 2016 during the scheduled flight (KL735) to Curacao, specifically and as you can see in the images, to the passengers of World Business Class by hostesses who, apparently, have received special training to be able to use this peculiar cart.
