Danish newspaper Information writes on FREE BEER

“På en dag, hvor temperaturen nærmer sig de 30 grader, lyder det jo forjættende: Gratis øl. Der er hedebølge og festivalsæson på vej, og det er kunstnergruppen Superflex, der her i forsommeren byder sig til med løftet om ‘free beer’. Men som det nu engang er med kunstnere, er der ikke helt hold i løfterne. Free beer er ganske vist fri på en helt særlig måde, men øllen er ikke gratis af den grund. (Read on …)

“To tip or not to tip? If the answer is yes, then how much? And why is our attitude to rewarding good service changing? These are some of the questions Tim Marlow will be exploring in this weeks’ Culture Shock when he talks to UK’s leading travel writer Simon Calder and Mary Meehan, co-founder of the Minnesota -based firm Iconoculture which focuses on translating trends for top multinational companies.

“The danish art group Superflex, has used this almost limitless form of copyright, for the recipe and design of the beer FREE BEER.

This is it! Right out of the tank..

Master brewer Birthe Skands describes 3.0 as a ”traditional, top fermented beer with a very high drinkability factor – defined as the desire to drink another glass or bottle.
