Carlsberg Laboratory

About Carlsberg Laboratory
The Carlsberg Laboratory was established in 1875. Its purpose was to increase the scientific understanding of the malting, brewing and fermenting processes, and it has been responsible for several groundbreaking scientific discoveries, including the pH scale. In 1884, JC Jacobsen gave the estate on Gl. Carlsberg Vej 10 to the Laboratory and financed the construction of its new building, designed by architect FC Thomsen in the Italian renaissance style. The Carlsberg Laboratory was opened on 10 November 1897– the brewery’s 50th birthday. The statue of JC Jacobsen in front of the Laboratory was unveiled at the same time. The building currently houses the Carlsberg Laboratory’s chemistry department
