"Free as in free speech"

Lessig and FREE BEER on Danish National TV

Sunday, June 11, 2006 by freebeer Comments (0)

“The danish art group Superflex, has used this almost limitless form of copyright, for the recipe and design of the beer FREE BEER. The first market version was released today, produced by the brewery Skands. But other breweries – Carlsberg, for example – are welcome to make their own version of the beer, as long as they credit Superflex and Skands on their bottles. According to Lawrence Lessig, the internet, and the digital revolution calls for this new form of copyright, and opens up a new world of creativity. Already, text sound and images are copied and edited in large measure. Lawrence Lessig gave this humorous example from the Swedish Art group atmo”

Photos of FREE BEER 3.0 at final production stage

Friday, June 9, 2006 by freebeer Comments (0)

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. With heavier beer from Belgium, for example, you´ll drink only one glass which you´ll indulge in. With FREE BEER you´ll want to drink another one – so it´s actually thirst quenching. We also wanted a nice color, and ended up with a beautiful, light amber”
