The Danish love their beer, yet they are now looking past the student favourite, Carlsberg, to satisfy their thirst.
The beer draws its inspiration from the open source environment often seen in PCs and software.
Students from the Information Technology University in Copenhagen are trying to help by disclosing what they call the world's first open source beer recipes.
Called Vores Oel, (Our Beer), the recipe is a worldwide hit.
The idea for the beer comes from open source software. Software whose code is made publicly available for anyone to edit, and improve, provided that those changes and improvements are then shared with the fellow public. Linux is the best known open source software.
Microsoft however creates software which it doesn't allow others to see how it works. Carlsberg takes a similar approach to beer.
Man walks into a bar, Ouch!
