Royal Unibrew is the second largest brewery group in Denmark, selling under the brands Ceres, Faxe and Albani, although their best selling beer is marketed as Royal. The company was known as Bryggerigruppen until May 2005.

Royal Unibrew also has a strong presence in the Baltic region, where it owns Vilniaus Tauras, Kalnapilis (both in Lithuania), and Lāčplēša Alus (in Latvia), as well as in Poland, where it has recently purchased the Strzelec beer and Brok breweries, and most recently Browar Łomża. It also brews and markets Heineken in Denmark.

Royal Brand[edit]

The largest brand of Unibrew is Royal. It is based on the two most popular beers in the Unibrew: The Ceres Royal Export, and Faxe Pilsner/Classic. Royal Export was also brewed by the other breweries in the group, but later the Pilsner and Classic were added to make a complete family of beer as is traditional in Denmark.
