@incubus inc:

Maybe, maybe, but I just can't see giant spinning blades that are blowing in the wind, attached to long whip-like wires as the best thing to stand next to in a thunderstorm, just saying.

On the contrary thunderstorms might only end up aiding one of these brilliant things.

Ryan99: "That's badass! How much will they cost to keep running? Like, filling up helium and powering the wenches to raise and lower them"

Wenches are surprisingly cheap to power: they`re basically slaves, and since they are already bringing you your beer, having them raise and lower the turbines should be no problem
