No one likes to admit they’re wrong. But at Carlsberg, we think it’s time. We’ve listened to our critics, looked again with fresh eyes and realised Carlsberg was probably not the best beer in the world any more. And we Danes believe a change can always be made for the better. So we’ve started again and completely rebrewed our beer from head to hop to create a crisper, fuller Danish Pilsner for your drinking pleasure. At this summer’s festivals, we’re proud to say you can taste our new brew for yourselves. Why not check out these up and coming acts at the same time? Because a better beer deserves only the best new music.
