Nigerian Breweries Plc., formerly Nigerian Breweries Limited, is a Nigeria-based company. It is a subsidiary of Heineken N.V incorporated in 1946. It currently operates eight breweries in Nigeria in addition to ultra-modern malting plant in Aba and Kaduna.

It was the pioneer and largest brewing company in Nigeria. It first produced STAR Lager in its Lagos Brewery in June 1949.

Other breweries later emerged in Aba in 1957, Kaduna Breweries in 1963 and Ibadan Breweries in 1982. In September 1993, it acquired its fifth brewery in Enugu and sixth in Ama, Enugu State on October 2003. Operations in the Enugu Brewery were discontinued in 2004, while the company acquired a malting plant in Aba in 2008.

Ama Brewery is the largest brewery in Nigeria and one of the most modern worldwide.
