About Ny Carlsberg Brew House
The Brew House is a prime example of Carl Jacobsen’s desire to create an extraordinarily beautiful working environment at Carlsberg. It dates from 1901 when it replaced a smaller brew house, which can still be seen on the opposite side of the road. The building’s facade has a balcony modelled to resemble those in the Palazzo Bavilaque in Verona. On the roof is a large copper sculpture by CJ Bonnesen entitled “Thor’s battle against the giants”. The group of figures was actually a competition proposal for the fountain at Langelinie, which was won by Anders Bundgaard’s Gefion group. Carl subsequently asked Bonnesen to produce a copy for the Brew House.
