History of Carlsberg

Carlsberg was founded in 1847 by the visionary brewer J.C. Jacobsen. His new brewery, just outside the city ramparts of Copenhagen, Denmark, pioneered steam brewing, refrigeration techniques and, greatest of all, the propagation of a single yeast strain. J.C. Jacobsen demanded quality above all else and his innovations in the art of making beer laid the cornerstone of the modern brewing industry. © 2006 Carlsberg
