Danes Get Serious About CC-Free Beer

Mia Garlick, June 10th, 2006

You might already be familiar with Free Beer – the beer recipe that was first released to the public by Copenhagen-based artist collective Superflex and students at the Copenhagen IT University under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. Our Summer ’05 interns Fred & Dana certainly were and cooked up their own V2.01 (sans the GuaranĂ¡) which they named “Fred & Dana’s Open Source Brew.” Even Jimmy Wales stopped by to help us drink it.

Well, back in Denmark, Copenhagen microbrewery Skands is reportedly busy preparing V3.0 of the Free Beer recipte. The new brew will be released for commercial sale to the public on Saturday in conjunction with the launch of the Creative Commons licenses in Denmark.
