Inscription.  Carlsbergs vugge. Siden 1603 har der været bryggergård her, den er dog brændt nogle gange. I 1845 bryggede I. C. Jacobsen her det første Bayerske øl i København i sin mors kobberkedel. Det blev så stor en succes, at han måtte udvide, og da vandet herinde i byen ikke var godt, flyttede han helt ud til Valby, hvor der var bedre vand i undergrunden.

This is the cradle of the Carlsberg Breweries. The original brewery was built in 1603. In 1845 I. C. Jacobsen brewed the first Bavarian beer of Copenhagen in his mother's copper boiler. It became such a great success that he needed to expand the brewery, and since the water in the city was of poor quality, he moved the brewery to Valby, which had better water.

2. J.C. Jacobsen founds Carlsberg (Carlsberg Group). "...Driven by his passion for beer and an early interest in the natural sciences, J.C. Jacobsen sets out on a lifelong journey to improve the quality of beer. His first stop is Bavaria where he studies the brewing techniques for a new beer at Gabriel Sedlmayr's zum Spaten brewery in Munich. In the summer of 1845, carrying two pots of Spaten yeast in a customized hat box, J.C. returns to Denmark by stagecoach. On this long journey, he keeps the yeast cool by stopping frequently and dousing it with cold water. J.C. Jacobsen's first batches of lager are made in his mother's copper wash basin. They are refined in his brewery till he gets them just right. This new lager needed a new brewery with larger cool storage space. Taking the name of his five-year-old son, Carl, and the Danish word for hill, "bjerg", he builds his new brewery just outside Copenhagen. With that, Carlsberg is born in 1847."
