A Budweiser blimp in the shape of a hockey goal light is on the loose over New Brunswick.

The 70-foot-long blimp broke free from its tether at a Saint John ball hockey tournament on Saturday, the Transportation Safety Board reports.

Still moving northeast at a speed of six knots and up to 5,000 feet above ground, the beer blimp is expected to safety descend near Sussex, N.B., though it's not clear when.
