Kathmandu, January 14, 2018:Carlsberg unveils the Red Hop Limited-edition Bottle at the Rox Bar Hyatt Regency.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of its partnership with Liverpool FC, Carlsberg had brewed a limited-edition beer. It was brewed using unique research and state-of-the-art technology that harnesses the fan atmosphere of 25 years of Liverpool FC matches.
To celebrate its 25-year partnership with Liverpool FC, Carlsberg has brewed the Red Hop Beer from hops unlike any other. Hops is one of the main ingredients in beer, as the cones from hop plants give beer its hoppy taste. The scientists at the Carlsberg Research Laboratory in Copenhagen have cultivated special red hop plants by immersing them in footage of 25 years of Liverpool FC matches.
Deputy Managing Director of Gorkha Brewery, Mr. Surendra Silwal shared his excitement about the special-edition beer and said, “We’ve tried to make Liverpool more of a part of us than ever before. After all, we’ve been a part of the club for 25 years now!The special beer, which was launched in October, uses hops that have been cultivated using footage from Liverpool matches by scientists at the Carlsberg Research Laboratory. This concept is truly unique, the thought that hops might be influenced by the sights and sounds of 25 years of matches is revolutionary.
The unique cultivation process was made possible by the installation of a powerful sound system and 360 video screens at the brewery’s Copenhagen greenhouse displaying Liverpool FC matches spanning the past three decades. Carlsberg and Liverpool FC expect dedicated fans to be able to taste both victory and defeat in 25 years of legendary club history. After 6 months, the red hops were harvested to brew the special Carlsberg Liverpool FC Beer.
Baibhav Sharma, Marketing Director of Gorkha Brewery said: “The Carlsberg relationship with Liverpool Football Club is one of the longest standing partnerships in sports. We have over 25 incredible years of history with Carlsberg and we couldn’t be prouder of our partnership. Carlsberg really wanted to give something special to the Liverpool FC Fans and create a beer just as great as club itself.”
The event also featured a very special moment. Carlsberg honored a passionate Liverpool Fan, Late Mr. Bikash Neupane, who passed away in December 2016 due to a chronic disease. Deputy Managing Director of Gorkha Brewery, Mr. Surendra Silwal presented an all-player signed Jersey that was sent to him from the LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB in UK.
