The 2014 MLB All-Star Game won't be the only new attraction to Target Field next week. The home of the Minnesota Twins has also introduced a new way to buy beer.

The Twins have partnered with DraftServ Technologies to install self-serve beer dispensers. To use the machine, a fan must go to a concession cashier and purchase a $10 or $20 card that will be scanned at the machine. During the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby, however, patrons will be given the option of a $50 card.

Customers are able to pour the amount they would like within a 20-ounce cup. There will be a limit of 48 ounces every 15 minutes. The machines will be monitored by employees to check identification and make sure no one is continuing to drink if visibly intoxicated.

The dispenser charges buyers on a per-ounce basis. There will be four different beers to choose from: Bud and Bud Light ($0.38 per ounce) and Shock Top Lemon Shandy and Google Island 312 Urban Pale Ale ($0.40 per ounce).
