Carlsberg, the fifth biggest brewery in the world originates from Copenhagen and is one of the largest Danish companies. At the visitor center in Valby, just outside the city center, is the Carlsberg Beer Museum. As part of the museum they have some Dutch brewery horses. The horses and wagens still parade around Copenhagen from time to time.
October 17, 1814: The London Beer Flood. When London beer companies started competing to see who could make the biggest beer vat, it could only lead to disaster. 8 people were killed when a giant vat burst in St. Giles Rookery, and when the injured were taken to hospital, it almost caused a riot there. Photo is of a typical London slum of the period.
