Special Brew

A Malty Brew

Did Sir Winston Churchill consider Carlsberg Special Brew the best beer in the world? Probably. It was created in his honour, when he visited our brewery in 1950. Which is why, behind the full-bodied malty beer flavour, you may detect a hint of cognac - the famous leader’s favourite after-dinner digestif.

Carlsberg Special Brew is a full-bodied, fruity tasting, strong lager with a good, clear bitterness. The dark golden brew stands as the No.1 premium beer in the high alcohol content category and has been one of the leading strong lagers since its launch to market in the early 1970's.
