MINNESOTA (CNN) — Minnesota’s Target Field — the host of this year’s All-Star Game, is the first Major League baseball stadium to get a self-serve beer station.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune says fans got to try it out on Sunday, July 6th during the Twins game against the New York Yankees.

The machine dispenses four beers — and fans are charged by the ounce.

Here’s how it works:

A customer goes to a concession cashier, shows ID, and buys a $10 or $20 vendor card to scan at the machine.

They can withdraw up to 48 ounces every 15 minutes — but there will be an employee at each station to check iD and step in if a person seems too intoxicated.

There’s only one station at Target Stadium — but another is expected to open for the All-Star Game on July 15th.
