The great Danes | For the first time in this series, two people are honored in one article whose lives and works are so intertwined that it is impossible to consider them separately. This installment outlines the contributions of brewing entrepreneur Jacob Christian Jacobsen and one of his most important employees, Emil Christian Hansen. Jacobsen became one of the greatest philanthropists of his time, while Hansen, a scientist, gave the world of beer a significant achievement, the technique for isolating pure cultures of the brewing yeast Saccharomyces carlsbergensis.
