Self-serve beer stations are running at Target Field after their Sunday debut -- attendees can pour their own through DraftServ machines. For the All-Star Game, fans can go to a cash register, present an ID and preload a card that has either $10 $20 or $50 on it and choose between 4 beers. Bud and Bud Light cost 38 cents an ounce, and Shock Top Lemon Shandy and Goose Island 312 Urban Pale Ale cost 40 cents an ounce. Patrons can pour up to 48 ounces of beer every 15 minutes.
