Newsroom » Carlsberg launches exclusive anniversary brews to celebrate 175 years of brewing « Carlsberg Group

175 years of pioneering, curiosity and an insatiable thirst for progress. The history of Carlsberg is built on a long tradition of innovation and a desire to relentlessly develop the art of brewing. To celebrate Carlsberg’s 175th anniversary, a series of exclusive experimental beers have been developed.

A Carlsberg Brut beer with Montrachet yeast and notes of yuzu, grapefruit and rose water. A Carlsberg Barrel Aged Lager that has been lagered in Danish whiskey barrels for 175 days and the impossible has been made possible, Carlsberg Wheat Lager is made from 100% wheat malt.

From a small craft brewery in Valby, Copenhagen, to a large international beer company with the world’s first industrial research laboratory. The journey of Carlsberg founder J. C Jacobsen from hobby brewer to successful beer visionary has put him and the Carlsberg Brewery on the map in the areas of research and innovation.

This year marks 175 years since Jacobsen began the Carlsberg adventure, which has become one of the most successful international breweries in the world. His pioneering spirit has since been a true inspiration to brewmasters who have followed in his footsteps and gone on to develop Probably The Best Beer in the World. To celebrate 175 years of Carlsberge jubilee three exclusive brews that truly push the boundaries of brewing are launched. All developed in the Carlsberg research laboratory.

Carlsberg Brut Beer

Brewed with wheat malt and Montrachet yeast from Carlsbergs own collection, which gives the beer an elegant, sparkling, dry and sweet touch. Yuzu, grapefruit and rosewater provide excellent balance and a unique crisp and refreshing finish. A different beer for special occasions.

Carlsberg blonde beer

100% wheat malt. 0% barley malt. Theoretically impossible? Most likely. A smooth and vinous beer brewed with whole wheat malt and dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin hops.

Carlsberg Barrel Aged Lager

Aged in barrels of the Danish whiskey brand Stauning for 175 days to give it a refined, rich and peaty taste. It has a complex character and is golden in color.

All three beers were made available in many markets around the globe in limited editions.
