    Dear friends, seeing a great success of this event and a huge enthusiasm of many participants (which lasted a mind-boggling ~12 hours!) -

    we are hosting a "vBeer v2" on 7 May at 3PM UTC (more information here) and will be happy to talk with you about the open/libre firmware/hardware. Bringing a real beer isn't required of course, vBeer is just a playful name to underline a democratic free-for-all format of our discussion where everyone can freely take a part. You are welcome!

    I like it but not a favorite, I just happened to get it by chance as the beers I ordered from a store some of them were out of stock so this batch they replaced the missing ones with some Schlenkerla, but I've had it before and it's nice but Rauchbier isn't a favorite.
    Yes Schlankeria is one of the bigger breweries there.
    Just found some Study on Breweries and Beer in Bamberg of the University of Bamberg.
    https://www.uni-bamberg.de/fileadmin...turprojekt.pdf
    On Page 3 (reader index) "Brauerein in Stadt und Landkreis Bamberg" there is a Map with a List of all Breweries.
    Might be interessting for you if you just need names for searching. I guess a lot of them are even that small that you can only buy them in Bamberg.

    For some reason, ALL of them insist on proprietary fw. It's as if they hate money. Sure they are aware of the influence of developers and power users, who care about these things?
    IIRC all Chromebooks come with Coreboot pre-installed.

    I'm right there with you. Pretty sure they love money, but apparently most money comes indirectly from OS (MSFT)/software vendors and hardware and systems manufacturers. Meaning if those companies cut a mobo manufacturer off....

    Nice Beer from Bamberg. Afaik this City has the highes brewery density in germany. A lot of old "micro"breweries. Batches are usually too small to cover export ambition's.
