Packers to debut self-serve beer at Lambeau Field

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Green Bay Packers will debut a serve-yourself beer station at Sunday's home game against Philadelphia.

The Packers say the machine gives fans more leeway in the amount of beer they drink, since they can pour only a few ounces if they choose. The self-serve machine has the same purchase limits as beer bought at concession stands at Lambeau Field.

After showing proof of legal drinking age, fans can buy $20 beer cards at a cashier. After again showing an ID, fans then swipe the card at the machine.

Miller Lite and Oktoberfest are the beer choices.

Last season, the Minnesota Twins became the first major league baseball team to serve beer from a vending machine. The Milwaukee Brewers followed in September.
