Heineken is known worldwide, but a bit of history can’t hurt! Everything began in 1864 when Gerard Adriaan, who was 22 years old at the time, bought the Heineken brewery “De Hooiberg” in Amsterdam. By 1875, a second brewery had opened in Rotterdam, focusing on low-fermentation beers. The famous Heineken "A-yeast" was developed in 1886 by a student of Louis Pasteur and is still used as the basis for Heineken beer today! In 1887, Heineken switched completely to the production of bottom- fermented beer.
After more than two years of research and deployment of new brewing techniques, the optimum recipe was created for Heineken's first non-alcoholic beer. Heineken 0.0. was introduced to the market on 7 March 2017. This non-alcoholic version of the popular Heineken original also has a refreshing character, fruity notes and a slightly malty body. It has been, and still is a huge success!
