If so, you’re in luck: Keurig and the makers of Budweiser are joining forces to develop an “in-home alcohol drink system” – so that having a beer can be even easier than literally just taking one out of the fridge. The idea is the brainchild of Keuring Green Mountain, the Vermont-based creators of the pod-based coffee machines, and Anheuser-Busch InBev, the Belgian makers of Budweiser, Corona, Stella Artois and several other brands. It will build on technology used for Keurig KOLD , a doomed version of the Keurig that made cold sodas and cost $370, as well as the “brewing and packaging technology” of AB InBev. There's also the US-available PicoBrew, which uses large Keurig-like pods filled with hops and grains to brew beer over five days.

In 1998, Keurig introduced a way to take a fairly simple task — brewing coffee at home — and make it even easier. The company’s single-serve coffee maker was a hit among individuals who didn’t want to take the time to dump grounds and water into a percolator or think in advance about how many cups of joe they might want to drink. Ever since then, established companies and start-ups alike have been trying to recapture the magic of making a ton of money off a device that is hardly necessary to...
