Unlikely as it sounds, we actually had something similar in the billets I lived in at Presidio San Francisco. It only sold canned beer and had an unfortunate tendency to be empty by late Friday evening of the week it was refilled. Then it would remain empty for at least another week. Eventually, the post commander ordered that the vending machines be filled with nothing but soft drinks, largely due to the tendency of First Sergeants to be the major reason for their emptying. However, in celebration of the link above, the most popular flavor post-beer was red cream soda. I'd never encountered such a thing before but it got the Southern boys really excited. Vanilla flavored soda water with red food coloring. Odd.

That looks neat, it should be in every break room.
