An Open Bottle


Of all the bright ideas that spring to mind when sitting up late and talking with your friends in college, this is an rare gem: A group of Danish students at Information Technology University in Copenhagen have created an open-source beer under a Creative Commons License called Vores Øl, or Our Beer:

Version 1.0 is a medium strong beer (6% vol) with a deep golden red color and an original but familiar taste.

So why beer? Aside from aspirations of becoming the Linux of Beers (eat your heart out Budweiser), they like the twist it gives to this famous definition of Free Software:

"Free software" is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of "free" as in "free speech," not as in "free beer."

Ah, but does it hit the spot? Wait for the CC-license people's DIY review, or brew your own.
