New York, July 16 (ANI): Japan's ANA airline has become the first airline to offer draft beer in-flight.

Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways (ANA) will serve draft beer-which was once banned from being served in airlines- from July 20, 2010, according to Bornrich.org.

For the first time, fliers will be able to tap into specialized kegs installed onboard, but only on domestic flights in Japan.

Cold beers will cost around 1,000 yen or about 11.30 dollars.

But only 20 glasses of beer will be available per flight.

Draft beer couldn't be served before because the fluctuating air pressure created too much foam, according to Japanese investigation.

The new beer keg technology is supposedly the cure for the problem, reports The New York Daily News. (ANI)
