Some beer slogans were troubling to begin with, but have aged for the worse. We’ve that, “Words to Drink By,” this time with Charles Darwin, and more…

Beer Shocker! Higher Heineken Prices = Lower Consumer Demand

Heineken’s decision to raise the price of it’s premiun beer has not fared well.

Heineken reported that beer volume in the last quarter of 2023 declined due to “challenging economic conditions” and lower consumer demand after the  Dutch multinational brewing company, introduced “inflation-led pricing” which simply translates into more expensive beer.

In his  4th Quarter assessment with analysts and shareholders,  Heineken’s chief executive Dolf van den Brink explained that the company’s overall volume had declined organically by 4.2%  with an overall year to-date decline of 5.1%, which isn’t great either.

When Heineken announced that it would raise prices due to soaring costs of energy and ingredients in Europe, it wasn’t alone. Other beer manufacturers, like Belgian brewer AB InBev, had already implemented price hikes earlier in 2022 to keep pace with inflation.

But none-the-less, consumers proved less willing to pay for a “more expensive” Heineken with overall beer sales declining in both the third and fourth quarter of 2023.
