Open source beer

Vores Øl (Our Beer) is the world’s first open source beer. Created by “Vores Øl Group”, a group of students at the IT-University in Copenhagen in collaboration with Superflex, the beer is an experiment in applying modern open source ideas and methods on a traditional real-world product.


The beer is based on classic ale brewing traditions but with added guarana for added energy-boost.

The recipe and the whole brand of Our Beer is published under a Creative Commons license, so anyone can use the recipe to brew the beer or to create a derivative of the recipe. You are free to earn money from Our Beer, but you have to publish the recipe under the same license and credit the original work.
