Carlsberg has signed a distribution deal with Budejovicky Budvar to distribute its products in Denmark.

The brewer said on Wednesday (24 October) that it will take over the distribution of the Czech brewer's products, including its premium and dark lager brands, through Carlsberg's independent company, House of Beer, in the country from 1 January.

"So far the co-operation between the two breweries includes Finland, Sweden, Serbia, Bulgaria, Croatia and Czech Republic", the company said.

No one from Carlsberg was immediately available for comment when contacted by just-drinks today (26 October).

House of Beer was founded as an independent limited liability company in 2002, with Carlsberg's Danish unit as its sole owner.
