Open Source Beer

This Magazine Staff

Here’s something for all you crazy copyleft anarchists out there. An open source beer recipe some students in Denmark came up with as an exercise in creative commons-like open sourcing.

See the BBC news piece:

Free Beer!

Just think, now that whole cryptic malted barley, water, hops and yeast conundrum is finally solved. We don’t have to rely on those recipe protecting bastards at Carlsberg to get us tipsy anymore. It’s the dawn of a new era.

But wait, haven’t I been making beer in a bucket under my sink for two decades now? Hey, I’m an intellectual property pioneer! I’m a world changer! I’m… a drunk!
