Tuborg is a Danish brewing company founded in 1873 on a harbour in Hellerup, an area North of Copenhagen, Denmark. Since 1970 it has been part of the Carlsberg Group. The brewery’s flagship, the Tuborg pilsner, was brewed for the first time in 1880.
- Opened: 1873
The name Tuborg comes from Thuesborg (“Thue’s castle“), a Copenhagen inn from the 1690s situated in the area of the brewery. This evolved and was adopted into local placenames, such as Lille Tuborg and Store Tuborg. Tuborgvej in Copenhagen is named after the site of the original Tuborg brewery.
