A beer vending machine, you say? That’s cool, but I wouldn’t call it “awesome”. Cans of beer can be the same size…

Hold up, this beer vending machine doesn’t dispense cans. It fills growlers.

The good folks at Phillips Beer in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (the West Coast of Canada, for the uninitiated) took a few years and built something amazing. Dare I say it, this vending machine is worth a trip to their fare island… if the concept doesn’t catch on very, very soon.

They took an old vending machine and altered it so that it would fill growlers with one of their varieties of beer, even providing a new cap.

This could be a game changer.
