The Heineken company was founded in 1864 when the 22-year-old Gerard Adriaan Heineken bought a brewery known as De Hooiberg (the haystack) in Amsterdam.
With the part acquisition of Scottish and Newcastle in 2007/2008 Heineken is now the third largest brewer based on revenues, behind the Belgian-Brazillian AB InBev and the British SABMiller.
Heineken International owns a worldwide portfolio of over 170 beer brands, mainly pale lager, though some other beer styles are produced. The two largest brands are Heineken and Amstel; though the portfolio includes Cruzcampo, Affligem, Żywiec, Starobrno, Zagorka, and Birra Moretti.
