Heineken, the huge Dutch brewer, has recently upped its acquisition game to keep pace with its competitors. Like AB Inbev, Heineken owns many “national” brews around the world from Haiti to Ethiopia to Laos. Heineken is also is owner of the Mexican brewer that owns Dos Equis XX, Sol and Bohemia. It also owns the other famous Dutch beer, Amstel.
It’s recent foray into US craft beer acquisitions included a stake in Lagunitas (CA), as well as Independence (TX) and lesser-known brewers Moonlight (CA) and Bellaire (MI).
