Heineken Revenue and Production Statistics
Heineken started as a small family-owned brewery in Amsterdam to one of the largest brewers in the world. In 1864, at the age of 22, Gerald Adriaan Heineken bought the Haystack brewery in Amsterdam. Despite his young age and inexperience in brewing, Heineken was armed with courage, self-confidence, and entrepreneurial spirit.
Although the Dutch were brewing ale, brown, and porter, Heineken focused on brewing lager. Nine years down the line, he opened a second Heineken brewery in Rotterdam. With breweries in two major port cities, the Dutch beer market felt the brand’s presence.
