Raise a glass: The historic Heineken brewery in the heart of Amsterdam and Canada share a birthday!

A century and a half is a long time, but that’s how long Dutch brewers' building has been around. Over that period, three generations of the Heineken family have built and expanded the beer brand across Europe and around the globe to become one of the most popular beverages of all time. In fact, today Heineken is enjoyed in 192 countries globally. It’s an incredible feat for a brand, one worthy of a little recognition.

Here’s a look back at the pale lager with the lone red star on the green bottle in recognition of the original Heineken brewery's sesquicentennial celebration.
