Posted on 07/08/2014 2:49:21 PM PDT by SMGFan
This year, Major League Baseballs All-Star Game will be held at Target Field in Minnesota. In advance of the game, the stadium has solved one of the great sporting-event dilemmas of our time: the possibility that you might miss some of the action on the field while waiting in line for a cold beer. What do you do? Target Fields answer: vending machines.
Now, Target isnt starting some kind of underage drinking utopia. Customers will have to prove that theyre over 21 in order to buy a prepaid card to use in the beer-o-mat. The machines also limit the quantity of beer that customers can purchase, limiting them to 48 ounces every 15 minutes. You know, in case a group has dispatched one person to get beer for everyone.

Awesome. Get out of my way...
So, there won’t be lines at these?
How does it ID people?
Now if they could only install urinals at every seat, we’d have it made!
It only takes $10 bills for a 10oz. luke warm beer and you get no change.
No, there will be no lines.
Average game time: 3 hrs 15 mins. Beer sales shut off after 7 innings, so 2 hrs and 45 mins of beer drinking time.
That's about two cases of beer. Where am I going to get the other two cases?
Man I’ll tell ya, you only rent that beer,.......
The same way mosquitos do...
Simple, buy 3 of the prepaid cards and you can get 48oz every 5 minutes. Do they accept EBT cards? Obama voters need to know.
Whatever happened to the guys who bring the beer into the stands and sell it to you while you’re seated?
My dorm at Lowry AFB has a Coors machine with 3.2 beer. That was 1980.
3.2 ain’t beer, it’s a crime against nature.
“Whatever happened to the guys who bring the beer into the stands and sell it to you while youre seated?”
Same thing thathappened to the bank teller that used to give you cash when you made a withdrawal; more scapegoats for Obama.
I’ve seen these machines in Quebec almost twenty years ago; the hotel clerk could watch the machine, and there was no ID process (the drinking age is only 18 anyway).
There will be an attendee at each machine checking ID’s, what is of more concern though is the lobster-stuffed corn dogs and the Hangover burger with BACON they will be selling.
Weird. Coors wasn’t sold in a lot of states because they didn’t make 3.2 beer
I may be a drunk and I may do a lot of stupid things but paying $6 for a beer isn’t one of them.
At least it is “Bud” and not Rocky Mountain P**s Water.
That’s a beer every 3.75 minutes!
At 10 bucks a piece!
Limiting customers to 192 ounces an hour will keep everyone sober.
If you’re watching the Twins these days, being drunk is a considerable asset.
What’s old is new again.
Lowry was outside of Denver. All I remember was my dorm had a pool table, a blackjack logo on the wall and a Coors machine. I could very well be confusing it with the beer clubs the under 21 crowd went to in Rapid City.
It was a while back and my memory isn’t that sharp.
