SOCHI, Russia -- Leave it to the Canadians to innovate during the Winter Olympics. While members of the press and athletes have been complaining about the facilities' shortcomings, the Canadians are kicking back with cold ones thanks to the Molson Coors Brewing Co.

The beer company created a unique machine that activates when a passport is inserted into a scanner. And the refrigerated vender only opens for Canadian passports.

The concept has gained worldwide press attention for its ingenuity. However, no word as to whether the Canadian athletes are sharing the bounty. Cheers.
