A full bodied, fruity pilsner beer with good clean bitterness and cognac flavours.

Since its launch to market in the early 1970’s Carlsberg Special Brew has been one of the leading UK super strength lagers. First produced in 1950 to commemorate Winston Churchill’s visit to Copenhagen, Special Brew has Cognac notes to reflect Churchill’s favourite tipple.  Originally called V-øllet (V-Beer), the drink followed the Danish tradition of producing a new beer to celebrate outstanding events such as a royal occasion or European coronation. Churchill’s favourite drink was cognac, so in brewing him a commemorative beer, the brewers at Carlsberg created a stronger lager with cognac flavours among its tasing notes.

At Christmas in 1952 Special Brew was launched throughout Denmark, and has been available in the UK since the ’70’s. Special Brew is a full bodied, fruity tasting, strong lager with a good clean bitterness.
