    Coffee machine maker Keurig Green Mountain and Brewer Anheuser Busch InBev (AB InBev) announced they’re teaming up to develop a new kitchen appliance that makes alcoholic drinks at home.

    Keurig, the maker of single-cup coffee machines, says it is teaming up with beer giant Anheuser-Busch InBev to build an at-home booze maker.

    The companies said Friday that they hope to create a product that could whip up beer, cocktails and spirits.

    AB InBev, based in Belgium, makes Budweiser, Stella Artois and other beers.

    Waterbury, 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.
