New Holsten Brewery
The Holsten Brewery had been brewing on Holstenstrasse in Hamburg-Altona for 140 years when, quite simply, it became apparent that this location was no longer perfect in terms of its logistical infrastructure and brewing capacity. Holsten’s parent company, the Danish Carlsberg Group, then decided to move the brewery to the southern edge of Hamburg. The brand new brewery complex was dedicated in a ceremony in November 2019. A highly efficient lauter tun brewhouse is at the heart of this development, and this facility is presented in the following article.
In cooperation with the City of Hamburg, Carlsberg commenced the search in 2013 for a new location suitable for its brewing business. An ideal site was found on the opposite bank of the Elbe in Heykenaukamp, an industrial zone in the Hausbruch quarter close to the A7 freeway.
