This week Brandi's Future Husband has invented something that everyone needs when attending any public event!! Beer that you don't have to wait in line for.Baseball and Beer…. That’s what my future husband is all about… This week he is a genius and an inventor…I will have to Minnesota to spend time with them…

In a first for Major League Baseball stadiums, Target Field has rolled out self-serve beer machines that let fans decide for themselves exactly the size brew they thirst for.  The first station, with two dispensing machines on the third-base side along the main concourse, made its wet run Sunday during the Minnesota Twins’ loss to the New York Yankees. A second station will be added on the same concourse along the first-base side in time for the July 15 All-Star Game, and they will remain for the rest of the season.

You will be able to buy a vending cards and use them to dispense beer from the machines.  Day One there was about 200 cards sold. There are four beers to choose from, with per-ounce pricing based on the cost charged in face-to-face transactions: Bud and Bud Light (38 cents per ounce), and Shock Top Lemon Shandy and Goose Island 312 Urban Pale Ale (40 cents per ounce).  You can buy them buy the oz. Say you have never had one of the selections and just want to get a 3 oz taste, you can do that.

Yes, you will need to start by visiting a concession cashier, where you will show proper identification to verify age and buy a vending card with either $10 or $20 on it to scan at the machine. You will then place a 20-ounce cup in the machine pulls down on the tap handle and pour what you want.. Just want to try a sip, There is even a video screen to show you step by step, how to pour a beer properly. To keep the line moving, you will have 20 seconds to complete their transaction.  The limit on beer? The max you can only have is 48 ounces every 15 minutes. There is an employee at each station to not only check identification but also to intercede should a beer drinker appear intoxicated.  And just like at the concession counters or when buying from vendors in the stands, the machines will shut down by the seventh inning.
