(Newser) – Keurig, the maker of single-cup coffee machines, says it's teaming up with beer giant Anheuser-Busch InBev to build an at-home booze maker, the AP reports. The companies said Friday that they hope to create a product that could whip up beer, cocktails, and spirits. Vermont-based Keurig Green Mountain tried to grow beyond coffee makers before, but its Keurig Kold at-home soda makers sold poorly and were discontinued in June after less than a year on the market. Keurig says it will use technology from the Kold machine to develop the alcohol maker with AB InBev. AB InBev, based in Belgium, makes Budweiser, Stella Artois, and other beers.
