, January 24, 2014 () – Carlsberg Breweries A/S has announced that it will open a new brewery in the Hammarby Sjostad area of Stockholm, in the spring of 2014.

The New Carnegie Brewery is a joint venture between Carlsberg Sweden and Brooklyn Brewery from the US.

The brewery is expected to open its doors to the public in the spring of 2014, and it is expected that up to 40,000 people will visit every year.
