Carlsberg Research Laboratory recreates first lager

Carlsberg's Research Laboratory has recreated the world's first quality lager.

Over the past three years, the Copenhagen-based facility has been painstakingly recreating a single bottle of lager from 1883, which used the world's first pure yeast, and have revolutionised beer brewing all over the world.

Now they've finished their work, and the product named 'Re-brew' will be available for the general public to purchase at £12.95 a bottle.

Only 600 bottles will be available in the UK, and can only be purchased from St Barts Brewery in London.

Liam Newton, vice president of marketing for Carlsberg UK, said: ''It's taken Carlsberg's brewers years of craft and dedication to get to a point where we can make Re-brew available to the public. This is an incredible opportunity for UK beer-drinkers and enthusiasts to purchase the Re-brew beer before anyone else in the world does.''

All proceeds from sales of the beer will be given to the University of Nottingham's International Centre for Brewing Science.
