This could work well with one of the small brewers like Pitfields - get
them to take an interest in the project.

They'd probably want us to buy up all the beer bottled in that way, but
that shouldn't present too much of a problem for London.pm. :)

We could use the "Programming Republic of London" artwork that was our
t-shirt design. I think that would look quite good as a beer label.
