Robots can be programmed to do just about anything now days, including opening/pouring a glass of beer. Check out the top five examples after the jump.

5. Beer-Opening LEGO Bot

This beer-opening LEGO/Fishertechnik robot — built by “Ryokale” — may not be as fast as its beer-pouring counterpart, but it’s still a nifty creation none the less and gets the job done.

4. Beer-Pouring Robot Mini

Thought not quite as impressive as its big brother, this beer-pouring /serving robot still manages to get the job done, and quite nicely.

3. Asahi Beer Robot

When it comes to pouring beer, nothing beats Asahi’s “Refrigerator Robot”. At the push of a button, this robot will than open a can and pour you a perfect mug of beer every time. It also keeps a six-pack and two mugs chilled for anytime enjoyment.

2. Robotender

Developed by Honeybee Robotics, “Robotender” is the world’s first bartending robot — even asking if you have a designated driver when serving a drink.
