Large-scale industry consolidation, a global slowdown in category growth, significant increase in input costs and cost pressures and above all, an unprecedented economic crisis unfolding in the second half of the year. Against this backdrop, Heineken delivered strong organic growth in net profit of 11 per cent, revenue growth of more than 27 per cent (7 per cent organic) and 16 per cent increase in Group volume (4 per cent organic). However, the exceptional economic circumstances required the company to reduce the value of goodwill in Russia, its investment in India and in its pub portfolios in the UK . These non-cash exceptional charges, together with low profit contributions of new businesses and the related financing costs resulted in a substantially lower reported net profit. Looking back over the last three years, Heineken has become more resilient, performance driven and competitive. They have achieved an average top-line growth of 16.5 per cent per year and grown the Heineken® volume in the premium segment by 3.4 million hectolitres, an average of 7.3 per cent per year. They are more efficient thanks to the successful delivery of more than €450 million of cost savings between 2006 and 2008 linked to their Fit2Fight programme. And they have a much stronger global footprint.

Budweiser Clydesdales commercials are always one of the most recognized commercials during a super Bowl. They have been aired every year starting on Super Bowl XX in 1986, because of this, many consider Budweiser ads as part of Super Bowl tradition. From the many, I chose the one aired on Super Bowl XLVII (2013), titled “Brotherhood”. Not only was this one of the top Budweiser commercial but it broke record over other commercials as one of the most shared Super Bowl Ad.
The strategy that Heineken uses is that of differentiation. This strategy gains market share and competitive advantage by distinguishing their products from their competitors through excellent design. A U.S. wholesaler recently asked a group of marketing students to identify a group of beer bottles that had been stripped of their labels. The stubby green Heineken bottle was the only one among the group that showed an instant recognition. This strategy also focuses on high awareness, easy accessibility, and new products. Heineken spent a lot of money on the launch of Premium Light; the first time that brewer had created an extension of its flagship

The commercial was established to persuade its viewers to drink Budweiser beer. Men/Women and beer are just like the horse and puppy relationship in the commercial. At the end, the screen shows “#bestbuds” which is what they believe the relationship between beer and men/women shall be. The whole commercial was most likely made to support Budweiser but it could also have an underlying meaning. Possibly the sign at the beginning showing “Puppy Adoption” could be significant showing viewers to adopt puppies. Furthermore, the morality of the commercial was to assist the company in growing by getting more people to drink Budweiser.

A slow growing market is a great way to characterize the energy beverage category in late 2007. This industry was increasing in profits still but was not increasing in profits as quickly due to factors such as market maturity, increasing in prices, competition and new hybrid products (Kerin & Peterson, 2010). The market was still very small but was dominated by Red Bull due to it being one of the first energy drinks, which caused it to dictate the market and have more of an advantage than the other energy beverages. So in late 2007 the market for energy drinks was still

Rivalry in the craft beer industry is high and in addition to the excise tax and overall high manufacturing cost have promoted mergers and acquisitions in order to consolidate and globalize the industry.
