Heineken 0.0 non-alcoholic beer comes from one of the most successful breweries in the world and equally, one of the biggest heavyweights in brewing the world over. Heiniken is a brand that truly needs no introduction – but we’re going to give it a go.
The Journey to Heineken Zero Alcohol
Who started Heineken?
It began on February 15, 1864, when a courageous and confident 22 year old Gerard Heineken purchased ‘De Hooiberg’ (‘The Haystack’) brewery in Amsterdam. With The Haystack up and running and a determination to brew the best beer imaginable, he then swung into bringing his vision of embracing the latest brewing innovations of the day to brew an “uncompromised premium lager beer” to life.
Outperforming all expectations and breweries far greater than in size, Gerard’s with his advanced brewing techniques earned him prized awards through the 1800’s including:
- winning the Medal D’Or at the International Maritime Exhibition in 1875;
- winning the prestigious Grand Prix at the Paris Expo in 1889; through to
- supplying beer to the restaurant at the Eiffel Tower in 1890.
Pursuing a premium product without compromise since its launch sees the brand as the world’s most international brewer, brewing in over 160 different breweries in 70 different countries.
