Beer will be Free as in Freedom (not zero price) when any qualified artisan can bid to rent the Land and Capital needed to produce that beer, and when a contract (perhaps a lease) causes that rent to be a 'function' of holding - so that all the resources are available "at cost", and everyone gets a chance because nobody is allowed to hoard.
