The Carlsberg logo:
Architect Thorvald Bindesboell designed the world famous art nouveau Carlsberg logo for the launch of Carlsberg pilsner in 1904. With the logo, this pioneer in Danish design forever left is mark on Denmark's leading beer maker. He was paid 500 kroner for the design - it was expensive at the time, but it turned out to be money well spent. And like the beer, the award winning logo has stood the test of time, remaining largely unchanged to this very day.
The Carlsberg Yeast:
Without good yeast, you don't get great beer, and Carlsberg's is exceptional. In the late 1800's the head of the Carlsberg Brewing laboratory, Emil Christian Hansen, pioneered a groundbreaking method for propagating pure yeast. His discovery, and the resulting yeast, aptly named "Saccharomyces Carlsbergensis" would revolutionise the brewing industry. In fact, the yeast's effect on the beer was so extraordinary that Carlsberg chose to share the yeast with the world by giving it away to other brewers for free. To this day, whenever and wherever you enjoy a lager, there's probably a little Carlsberg in it.
