Danish brewer Carlsberg is to drop the name of its famous Yorkshire beer Tetley's from its UK company title.
Pubs will still sell beer under the Tetley name
Carlsberg-Tetley will now become known simply as Carlsberg UK.
But it will continue to run the Tetley brewery in Leeds, where Joshua Tetley started brewing in 1822, and the beer will still carry the Tetley name.
The former name, Carlsberg-Tetley, was created in 1993 when Carlsberg merged its UK brewing operation with that of Allied Domecq.
Top four brewer
After Allied pulled out in 1996 and a merger with rival brewing group Bass was blocked, Carlsberg took full control in 1997.
Carlsberg UK chief executive Colin Povey said that the name change highlighted the growing integration of the UK business with its Copenhagen-based parent.
The UK-based group is the number four brewer in Britain with a market share of around 12% from its Carlsberg, Carlsberg Export and Tetley's brands, behind market leader Scottish & Newcastle, Coors and Interbrew.
