The Carlsberg Group

Some have to dig deep to find their purpose. For us, it has always been there.

The Carlsberg Group was established in 1847 by brewer J.C. Jacobsen. J.C. Jacobsen was a true renaissance man. A believer in quality, research and serving the community, he shared his knowledge with fellow brewers. He looked to the future, prizing long-term growth over short-term gain.

Over the years, these values have evolved to form our purpose: brewing for a better today and tomorrow. Imagination and fresh thinking are in our DNA - from the method for how to purify yeast, the invention of the pH scale and to the revolutionary sustainable Snap Pack packaging innovation.


Carlsberg Group today

Our founders' mentally and their unquenchable thirst for progress have made us who we are today: one of the world's leading brewery groups. We are a global brewer, powered by strong local brands. We have more than 140 brands in our beer portfolio, which spans core beer brands, craft & speciality and alcohol-free brews. Our core beer includes the international brands Carlsberg and Tuborg and strong local power brands, such as Ringnes in Norway, Lvivske in Ukraine and Wusu in China. Our largest craft & speciality brands are the sophisticated French 1664 Blanc and the Belgium abbey beer Grimbergen. The Russian Baltika 0 is our largest alcohol-free brew.
