The Cyprus Carlsberg Brewery
Photos Photiades Breweries was officially formed as a company in 1963 after the acquisition of the oldest brewery in Cyprus, the Leon Brewery that was established in 1937. In 1968 the Company was granted the license to produce Carlsberg beer in Cyprus, which made Cyprus the first country to produce Carlsberg outside Denmark. In the past 40 years, Photos Photiades Breweries has produced Carlsberg beer with great success and has led it to be the leading beer in Cyprus with over 53% market share. More than the market share, Carlsberg has remarkably managed to become a part of modern Cypriot’s culture and everyday life.
