- The Lasso is a new beer from acclaimed Great Divide Brewing Company in Denver in celebration of its 20th anniversary this year.
- A slight departure from Great Divide’s usual full-bodied beers, the Lasso is a drinkable IPA with a 5% ABV. It will be part of the regular line-up.
- Pair it with BBQ beef brisket, pork green chili, baked beans, a medium cheddar cheese, thin-sliced salami, oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies, or… just drink it on its own.
- Boulder Beer created this specialty beer in honor of cyclocross national championships being in Boulder, January 8-12, 2014.
- A Belgian trippel, the Heckler packs some punch in 16 ounce cans at 8.5% ABV.
- Named for the raucous fans often found lining the course at cyclocross races, this beer is a more of a slow-drinker. Get it while it lasts!
- Check out this video to learn more about cyclocross and why (like FOSS) it goes well with beer.

- Got thinking about the topic for this show from Open Hardware Junkies interview with attorney, Eli Greenbaum about his article on the topic and a 3D printing license
- Ideology behind open hardware stems from open source software
- Andrew Katz has a great article about the topic
- Existing open hardware licenses are the TAPR Open Hardware License and the CERN Open Hardware License
