uubp - Unix-to-Unix beer protocol
Uubp allows the user to transfer beer, ale, or other fermented grain beverages
between network sites. Using TCP/IP (telecommunication protocol for imbibing
pilsners), uubp encodes beer from a local file system into packets suitable
for FTP (fermentation transfer protocol) delivery at a remote IP site.
% uubp -c"AMBER" -f0.7 -y0 -q2 188.8.131.52
The preceding example sends two six-packs (-q2) of amber ale
(-c"AMBER") with a fizziness quotient of 70%, brewed using yeast of
type 0 (saccharomyces cerevisiae) to IP address 184.108.40.206, which is the
IP address of the White House.
Both source and destination sites must be running uubp-daemon. In addition,
local restriction exist in many areas for the transportation alkohol across
state lines. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is currently involved in
litigation to ensure the ability to distribute beer through the uubp protocol
according to the 21st Amendment. To support the SIG of EFF devoted to this
cause, join the Homebrewers of the Electronic Frontier Engaged in Winning
