People are obsessed with convenience.

They want everything right now. No waiting. It seems like your can get everything from an ATM these days: cash, cupcakes, pizza. And now: beer.

What was once only available through actual human conversation is finally accessible via what’s pretty much a bar-version of a vending machine.

Randolph Beer, a bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (with other locations around New York City) has innovated this beer ATM. To use it. Customers swipe their real credit cards in exchange for the bar’s beer debit cards, which they use on the beer taps.

Customers can choose from 24 self-serve beers. Each serving comes in a variety of sizes from one to 12 ounces. The bar’s beer menu is also quite extensive and sure to please any discerning beer lover.

And as long as you have cash on your beer debit card, you can go back for more.

We could also use a pretzel ATM while we’re enjoying our cold brews, but no rush.
