Pints without the packaging

Another reason to support your local pub – beer on draught is the lowest carbon packaging format you can find. And some of our kegs have been going between pubs and our packaging line since the brewery was built in the 70s, delivering freshly brewed beer to consumers across the country.

Every drop goes through rigorous testing before it’s approved to go out to pubs. We want to make sure the beer in your glass tastes just as good as when we put in the keg. That’s why we developed the Carlsberg Quality Dispense System, a fully enclosed environment from keg to glass, ensuring that you get the perfect pint every time, with average water savings of 6,000 litres per year - equivalent to six week's water use for the average Brit.

A better bottle

A better bottle

Probably the best beer in the world deserves nothing less than the best bottle! So when we launched the new perfectly balanced Carlsberg Danish Pilsner in March 2019, we worked closely with our glass suppliers to develop a bottle to be proud of. It’s not only embossed with our founder’s signature, but it’s 10g lighter than the one it replaced. In just the first year this saved over 134 tonnes of glass across the Carlsberg portfolio!

A contribution to be proud of

In 2019, we commissioned research to establish the contribution to the UK economy of our 700 colleagues, and found that each Carlsberg UK employee created an additional 14 jobs in hospitality, one with suppliers and five in retail. That’s a massive 14,000 jobs created!
