Amerikavej is a street in the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark. Copenhagen's gallows were from 1622 to 1792 located where Amerikavej runs today. John Murray Forbes, America's Chargé d'Addair to Copenhagen, constructed a country house named Amerika at the site in the 1810s, he commissioned Ole Johansen Winstrup to construct a windmill to the rear of the building in 1814. The construction was based on an advanced American adaption of Spannish windmills; the windmill became colloquially known as Amerika Mølle and, adopted as its official name. It was replaced by a traditional Danish smock mill. A private road replaced the driveway to the windmill in 1854 and it was given the name Amerikavej in 1863; the upper part of the windmill was dismantled in 1882. The lower part was converted into a poorhouse under the name Københavns Arbejdshjem or Redningshjemmet Nain in 1884. No. 3 was designed by Heinrich Hansen. Amerika Mølle at Vesterbrobilleder
Tuborg is a Danish brewing company founded in 1873 on a harbour in Hellerup, an area North of Copenhagen, Denmark. Since 1970 it has been part of the Carlsberg Group; the famous Tuborg pilsner was brewed for the first time in 1880. The name Tuborg comes from Thuesborg, a Copenhagen inn from the 1690s situated in the area of the brewery; this was adopted into local placenames, such as Lille Tuborg and Store Tuborg. "Tuborgvej" street in Copenhagen is named after the site of the original Tuborg brewery. Tuborg produced pale lager for the Danish market, it merged with United Breweries in 1894, which entered into a profit-sharing agreement with Carlsberg in 1903. In 1970, United Breweries was acquired by Carlsberg. Today, it makes lager for global export, as well as a variety of continental styles for both domestic and foreign markets. In 1996 the last Tuborg beer was brewed in Hellerup and the area is now providing fashionable apartments and business offices. Tuborg sell a variety of beers in over 31 countries.
These varieties include Tuborg Green, Tuborg Lemon, Tuborg Christmas beer, Tuborg Gold, Tuborg Red, Tuborg Twist, Tuborg Black, Tuborg Fine Festival. Tuborg Gold is quite popular throughout Denmark and southern Sweden, being as found on store shelves in Sweden as Swedish brews such as Pripps Blå or Falcon. Tuborg Green has been successful in Eastern Europe in Russia, where the brand has seen double digit growth for a number of years and is now the largest premium international beer in the country. Tuborg Red was the first beer brewed by the company, in 1875. Tuborg Red is not brewed but is produced once each May to salute the company's birthday. In its native country of Denmark, Tuborg is known for additional brands, including Tuborg Red, various soft drinks, including orange-flavoured Tuborg Squash. In 1990 Tuborg launched their annual Christmas brew on the second Wednesday in November, with the marketing term "J-day". There is a P-day for påskebryg. In 1999, J-day moved to the first Friday in November.
Traffic police laid out an alcohol control plan for that evening. In 2009 J-day was moved again to the last Friday in October, but in 2010 it returned to the first Friday in November. In 2008, Tuborg announced a sponsorship deal with Reading and Leeds music festivals to become their exclusive Official Beer Partner, a position held in previous years by Carling. In 2009, it arranged an exclusive deal with The Download festival to be the official beer and have a dedicated stage named after the beer. Tuborg sponsors the Tuborg Image Awards, an annual music award presentation that takes place in Nepal. Part of the brand's success in Russia has come from its strong links to music in Eastern Europe and by being one of the first beers in the market to launch the innovative ring pull cap.

Between mid-1887 and January 1890 the couple lost four children to disease. Devastated by their loss, Carl Jacobsen demolished the old house and constructed a new home in the grounds, it was designed by the architect Hack Kampmann and completed in 1892. After Carl Jacobsen's death in 1914, members of the family continued to live in the house until 1998, it was refurbished and is now used by Carlsberg for meetings. The house lies pulled back from the street and is entered through a rough iron gate flanked by Carlsberg Museum building on one side and a small round guardhouse on the other; the right side of the house is built in red brick. The stills are made of glazed tiles and slate, window frames are in red-painted wood.
A flight of stairs leads up to the entrance, sheltered by a roof supported by granite columns. The lintel bears Carl and Otilia Jacobsen's names in French, Bien faire—laisser dire, seen on the high walls of the winter garden at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek; the left side of the main building is in red brick and has a richly decorated facade. There are Zodiac symbols around the cornices; the roof is clad in slate shingles and has copper flashings, ornamental chimneys and decorative wrought iron metalwork along the roof ridge.

Hansen Reistrup at Kähler's workshop. On the rear side of the house, a raised veranda with a rough iron balustrade runs along the full length of the building, overlooking the garden.
A pavilion in Venetian style serves as a visual backdrop to the garden. It was completed by Hack Kampmann in 1895 and has an open front where two marble columns support three arches. A balustrade runs along the edge of the roof. Two parallel paths lined with copies of classical sculptures connect the two buildings. Hackmann has designed a thatched ice house, built in 1896. In cold winters, the ice was otherwise imported from Norway; the building was used for storing fruit and other produce from the garden. Carlsberg district
