Men really like their beer, including Denmark-brewed Carlsberg, which controls over 8 percent of the global beer market. The question is: Do men like Carlsberg enough to wash their hair with it?

That's a key question in light of today's launch of Carlsberg Beer Beauty, a line of men's grooming products that includes shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. Crispin Porter + Bogusky Copenhagen took the project from concept to execution.
