Voris Øl Open Source Beer

Vores Øl is the world's first open source.... Beer! The recipe and the whole brand of the Vores Øl(our Beer) is done by a group of students from the IT-University in Copenhagen and published under a Creative Commons license, which basically means that anyone can use their recipe to brew the beer or to create a derivative of the recipe and use it commercially.
Asked why they chose Beer,they said; Why not? We all like beer, plus there's a legendary quote used to explain the concept of free software (now referred to as open source): "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"...
