Red Bull is a relatively new company yet it is known virtually throughout the world. Red Bull was founded in 1984 by Mr. Dietrich Mateshitz when he came across an “energiser” whilst on business trips to Austria. He decided to bring this “energiser” back to Europe and adapted it to European taste – this would be the beginning of what is today the Red Bull empire.

Anheuser-Busch has been the nation’s largest brewer for more than 40 years. In the mid-1800’s Adolphus Busch became familiar with the beers of a small Bohemian town called Budweis. After immigrating into the United States he married into the Anheuser brewing family. In the 1870’s Adolphus Busch registered Budweiser as a trademark in the U.S. Adolphus Busch dubbed his company Budweiser, “the king of beers.” Budweiser is a registered trademark of the St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch, One Busch Place, St. Louis, Missouri 63118-1852, which is the world’s largest brewing company. Budweis is a small brewing town in the Czech republic. The town has a 700-year-old history of beer brewing. The brewing company Budvar of Budejovice registered Budweiser as a trademark in Europe in 1895. Budvar’s Budweiser is considered by beer experts to be a greater beer than the American Budweiser. Czechs are very proud of the Budvar brewery and considers its beer to be a national treasure. In the days before a global marketplace, the American Budweiser and the Czech Budweiser have never really competed with each other. However, in the 1990’s with increased global competition in the beer market, this dispute over who actually owns the Budweiser name takes on increased importance. According to a 1958 agreement signed by the Czech government, brand names that denote geographic origin are protected. So the Czech government which owns Budweiser believes that they should be the only ones allowed to carry that name in Europe. However the United States did not sign that treaty in 1958, so they do not agree with this. They have decided that it was no longer necessary for them to have a trademark settlement to develop the American Budweiser business in Europe.
Key success factors in this industry include on time delivery, quality product, and brand recognition. Supermarkets and restaurants cannot afford to have shelves sit empty for even a moment.

Additionally, consumers in the United States have begun an era of drinking more beer than wine or hard alcohol. As more beer is being consumed, sales are sky rocketing for not only local beers such as Budweiser, Lagunitas, or Heineken; but imported beers have begun to make popular appearances on shelves in stores more often. With this drastic change in the United States, international brewing companies in various countries will experience amplified demand for not only international products but a greater need for exported ingredients as well. Moreover, in the next few years the demand for imported beer will increase dramatically.

The brewing industry in the United States began in 1625 when the first brewery was founded. In the early stages the industry, competition among different breweries only existed in highly secluded small geographic areas.

After prohibition there was a sharp decline in the number of brewing companies. Almost 90% of the brewing companies from 1947 to 1995 went ...

... them. The expansion into other areas in the world is something that the company is constantly considering. Expanding their advertising and marketing to reach those individuals in the United States that have not “experienced” the craft beer industry is a constant tactic the company considers. There are also potential environmental threats that the company realizes and considers while making their business decisions.
In an effort to increase demand for and sales of its products, Heineken has begun to analyze the need for a different marketing strategy. One of the chief problems Heineken currently faces is that it is perceived differently from market to market. Although Heineken has consistently been marketed as a premium brand it is seen in the United States and Asia as a beer for only special occasions instead of daily consumption. In Latin America the brand is seen as just one of a many of undifferentiated European imports.
