The article reports on the use of programming software to brew a batch of beer by students at technology schools in Copenhagen, Denmark. The students formulated and release the 3.0 version of the software, an open source software for beer brewing applications. The beers produced have been served to thirsty patrons in museums and galleries in Europe and U.S. The process-oriented open source is all about incremental refinement through serial authorship.
