MLB All-Star Game to feature self-serve beer machines

Target Field was already one of the best ballparks in baseball, and it just got even better — assuming you love beer and hate social interaction.

The home field of the Minnesota Twins, which will host this year's All-Star Game, debuted a new self-serve beer machine on Sunday. Patrons who want to get drunk will still need to speak with another human being to prove they are of legal drinking age. But after that, they're free to choose from among four AB InBev offerings and pour up to 48 ounces of brew every 15 minutes, at least until the seventh inning.

Target Field will reportedly have a second self-pouring beer machine installed before the All-Star Game.

I, for one, welcome our new beer robot overlords.
