Anheuser-Busch has a new way to keep the office beer fridge stocked

Need a cold one at the beginning/middle/end of the week? Folks work hard here in Washington, D.C., and Anheuser-Busch is offering one less thing to do to get ready for happy hour. The smart Office Bud-e auto-restocking beer fridge can hold up to 180 beers, which the company behind Budweiser is calling the greatest “advancement in corporate culture since the invention of the water cooler.”

That’s why D.C., Chicago and New York City are the first cities to try it out, and offices are getting offered $0 leases.

“Part of our dream at Anheuser Busch is to bring people together, and the Office Bud-e fridge helps to do just that,” Director of Strategy & Innovation Andrew Green said in a statement. “As workplace culture continues to become more social, the Office Bud-e acts as the new age ‘water cooler’ supporting in-office events and promoting employee engagement.”

Just connect the fridge to WiFi, select your favorite beer and it gets delivered to the office. That means you can order Blue Point, Goose Island, Rolling Rock, Shock Top, Budweiser, Golden Road Brewing and Michelob for any occasion. When the beer begins to run out, the fridge sends a message to a local delivery service to automatically deliver the beer chosen by the office manager and staff.
