I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

Carlsberg


I have the travel bug so I just booked tickets for the Christmas markets in Germany. I also realized I never finished posting photos from our last trip to Germany and Denmark! My dad had very few requests for the trip other than to drink Germany beer! In Denmark he also wanted a tour of the Carlsberg Brewery. We obliged (I may have consumed a Carlsberg beer, or several, during my stint overseas).

It was actually very interesting and full of history. The workers were originally allowed two jugs of beer a day. They could consume one over lunch and take the other home! Not a bad job perk! This is the original brewery.

It is now being relocated but still open for tours and worth a visit if you are in the area.

We got lucky and saw the horses – reminded me of the Budweiser Clydesdales.



At the end of the tour you get two free beers! Bonus. Was very fun to go through a checklist and a “smell” station where you would then pick the beer that coordinated with your preferences.

I accidently picked a “child’s beer” one try so was given three. I guess at Christmas time the children get to drink beer in Denmark! It was very low alcohol content and tasted like pop! Great experience – really sad we don’t get Carlsberg products in the US as it is excellent beer.
