How to use it?
Just make a link to https://beeroverip.org and it's done. The person you are offering the beer to can click on the link and gets instant satisfaction!

And this gave me the idea to buy beeroverip.org (and .net, but who cares) domain name(s), and quickly fetch a picture of a glass of beer on flickr, upload a quick and dirty HTML page demonstrating that Beer Over IP is not just a concept. This can happen!
So, what's next?
