MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins say Target Field is the first major league ball park to serve beer from a vending machine.
The self-serve beer station debuted Sunday during the game against the New York Yankees. A second station is expected to be added in time for the All-Star Game next week.
To buy a brew from the vending machine, buyers prove their age at a concession stand and purchase a vending card. That card is used at the vending machine where buyers can tap up to 48 ounces every 15 minutes. The machine offers four beers: Bud, Bud Light, Shock Top Lemon Shandy and Goose Island 312 Urban Pale Ale.
The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1oejhH2 ) says that just like the concession stands, the machines stop dispensing beer by the seventh inning.
