Heineken and Danish brewer Bryggerigruppen have joined forces to produce, sell and distribute Heineken in Denmark.

Under the deal the Danish brewer will introduce Heineken, one of the biggest beer brands in the world, to the Danish beer market this autumn, when the sale of beer and soft drinks on cans becomes legal in Denmark.

Bryggerigruppen is made up of a line of smaller brewers including Albani, Ceres and Faxe.
