Vintage Heineken beer clogs are collectible items of breweriana advertising.

According to the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act’s definition, “vintage” refers to pieces manufactured within the last 100 years and can include items made as recently as the 1980s.

Heineken

Founded in 1873, Dutch brewer Heineken is today the world’s third largest beer producer. It owns more than 100 breweries around the globe.

The company’s original Amsterdam factory closed in 1988.

The firm's flagship Heineken beer is said to employ the same recipe as it did when it was first produced in the 19th century.

Vintage Heineken beer clogs

Vintage Heineken beer clogs were produced during the 1960s, in large numbers.

The Dutch-made clogs were designed to be employed in bars and pubs rather than as wearable footwear.

Predominately yellow, they featured a cartoon depiction of a man drinking a beer.

Many of the 9.5 inch long clogs were imported into the US by the New York-based Van Munching & Co.

How much are vintage Heineken beer clogs worth?

Due to their abundance, good condition pairs can sell for just $20 at internet auction sites such as eBay.

Buyers should be aware that several modern-day reproductions are also in circulation.
