Here is a guy sitting in what to appears to be a fancy company surround by two dressed up ladies. In front of him is five different glasses of different drinks. But all he wants is a beer - and it has to be a Carlsberg Hof!

The Danish text on the poster can be translated to: "Everyone can do with a Hof".

The Carlsberg lager (premium) beer is often referred to by the nickname "HOF". When Carlsberg was appointed royal purveyor the brewery introduced a lager beer which was based on a previous product called "Gl. Carlsberg Pilsner". As with its predecessor, the label designed by Thorvald Bindesbøll who created a design that has remained largely unchanged until today. The label showed the royal privilege and the beer was soon nicknamed HOF in public. The beer was introduced at the time as a standard bottle, also known as "shoulder bottle".

In the coming decades, there was not many changes to the product. Shoulder bottle was replaced with the current standard bottle and in 1991 the brewery used the name HOF on the labels to give a certain resonance in the media.

This poster is quite a popular item to catch and some of these original prints are to be find in auction houses.

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
