If you thought Coke Zero's drinkable billboard was impressive, Carlsberg would like to serve you some outdoor advertising with a bit more kick.

The Danish brewer, with help from ad agency Fold7 and design company Mission Media, unveiled a beer-dispensing billboard at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane in London. The billboard was emblazone with the headline, "Probably the best poster in the world." The brand was on hand to monitor the drinkers, making sure no one was under 18.

"We want to get the Carlsberg brand in front of as many beer drinkers as possible," says Dharmesh Rana, senior brand manager at Carlsberg U.K.
