Frequently asked questions

  • What is the Heineken Experience?

    The Heineken Experience is a brand experience within Heineken’s oldest brewery, in the heart of Amsterdam. In 1988 the former brewery closed down, because we got too big for our boots. Today, the historical building serves as a venue where you can learn all about Heineken heritage, the brewing process, our sometimes crazy innovations, sponsoring and the story behind the star. You’ll also learn about the best way to taste and enjoy your Heineken beer.
