TOKYO -- Japanese IT services group NEC and its partner microbrewery have devised a series of alcoholic beverages using a mix of artificial intelligence and pop culture that they say is sure to be the choice of any generation.

Although it will ultimately be up to consumers whether the drink hits the spot, NEC said Wednesday its new line of beer describes trends that people in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s have experienced in each decade of their lives.
