While it may be a stretch to call it a pub…Carlsberg’s Scandinavian inspired cabin, in a secluded UK forest location, is carbon-neutral, architecturally sublime and the right place to enjoy serious beer.
Here’s the deal…
Located in the United Kingdom’s wild Cornish countryside, Carlsberg has furthered their commitment to sustainability and built the world’s first fully carbon-neutral bar/cabin, powered by solar energy and a nearby waterfall.
Using only locally sourced building materials, Carlsberg teamed up with award winning architect, Ben Huggins, to create the cabin in a dramatic woodland setting that uses hydro and solar power technology, and built using only sustainable materials.
“The inspiration for the design of the Carlsberg Cabin is a ‘Danish’ re-imagining of the iconic Cornish engine houses you see in Poldark,” said Huggins, from New British Design.
”The original engine houses were built of stone and pumped water from the tin mines, now we’ve translated that iconic design into a lightweight frame structure but this time pumping beer.”
“The remote off-grid nature of the quarry location required the use of both solar PV and hydro-electricity to power the Carlsberg DraughtMaster that consistently delivers the perfect chilled pint.”
Designed to sleep up to six people, the Carlsberg Cabin can even be booked via Airbnb.
Liam Newton, the Vice President Marketing at Carlsberg couldn’t have been more excited about their new creation…..
“We wanted to build an off the grid pub that allowed people in the UK to live the Danish Way and escape the busyness of daily life. We’re extremely proud to be able to launch the world’s first pub powered by a waterfall.
Carlsberg’s carbon-neutral woodland cabin/pub is just the latest sustainability driven initiative championed by the global brewing giant. Last January the company announced aggressive new sustainability strategies to achieve zero CO2 emissions, water waste and accidents by 2030.
And Carlsberg’s brewery in Falkenberg Sweden is now 100% powered by bio-gas and green electricity and is first big brewery in that country with zero carbon emissions from its energy consumption.
