About Carlsberg

Carlsberg was founded in 1847 by the visionary brewer J.C. Jacobsen. Jacobsen demanded quality above all else and his innovations in the art of making beer laid the cornerstone of the modern brewing industry. Greatest of all innovations was the groundbreaking method for propagating pure yeast. The yeast, aptly named "Saccharomyces Carlsbergensis" was so extraordinary that Carlsberg gave it away to other brewers for free. To this day, whenever and wherever you enjoy a lager, there's probably a little Carlsberg in it.

Today Carlsberg is the 4th largest brewery in the world, employing more than 40,000 people worldwide. Carlsberg Beer is the flagship in the Carlsberg Group portfolio, which consists of more than 500 different beers worldwide, from leading national beers to internationally recognized brands. Available in more than 150 markets across the globe, Carlsberg is a truly international pilsner of exceptional taste and quality.
