Heineken Says You Can Now Feel Comfortable to ‘Cheers’ With No Alcohol Beers

Heineken has launched a new global campaign with Publicis Italy/Le Pub titled “Cheers with No Alcohol. Now You Can” to pitch its line of non-alcohol beer by focusing on the exclusion that some people experience when choosing not to drink alcohol on social occasions.

The one-minute spot, musically driven by a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition”,  features fictitious drinking situations across history, from the Viking era to New York’s Roaring ’20s, right up to the modern-day, showing how a person not drinking alcohol is sometimes excluded from the all-important ‘cheers’ moment – that is right up until Heineken changes all that by giving you some suds sans alcohol to stave off the stigma.


This new campaign builds on the brand’s previous, global campaign, ‘Now You Can’, which introduced Heineken 0.0 as the perfect drink for moments that were traditionally ‘non-beer’ occasions, such as after sports, while parked in a car or at a work lunch.

“With so many of us looking for alternatives to alcohol when at social and evening occasions – especially during periods like Dry January, as is common in many regions – the non-alcoholic beer segment has exploded over the last five years,” said Bram Westenbrink, global Heineken brand director, Heineken.

“We’ve worked extremely hard to make sure Heineken 0.0 has been at the forefront of that trend. Having launched Heineken 0.0 in 2017, November 2021 saw us reach a key milestone of distribution across 100 markets, and now we’re keen to help bring even more of our customers along on the journey. After all, it’s about making sure everyone feels included during social drinking moments, even if they are choosing not to drink alcohol.”
