The history of Heineken began when Gerard Adriaan Heineken purchased De Hooiberg [The Haystack] brewery in Amsterdam in 1863. The first shipment unloaded in the States was In 1933, just three days after the end of Prohibition; from that first day to the present, Heineken has been the number 1 imported brand. Currently Heineken has grown to the number two brewery in the world: in 2000, 98 million hectolitres (9.8 billion litres!) were brewed under Heineken supervision. All that said and done, I still prefer a Guinness!
