James Bond drinking a beer? It's true. Agent 007, known for preferring his martinis "shaken, not stirred," will suck on a beer in the new film "Skyfall." Why? Because of a $45 million product placement deal with Heineken.
Wait, what? The dapper, dashing spy with impeccable taste is going to drink a Heineken? Not something a bit more sophisticated, like a Duvel? Or something more daring, like a Piraat? Or bolder, like a Chimay Bleu? Or hipper, like a Stone Arrogant Bastard? Or tastier, like this?
Yes, I realize a lot of people like Heineken (I, obviously, am not one of them). James Bond, however, is not like us. He's better than us. He's cooler than us. He's more sophisticated than us. He should be drinking an exquisite beverage, not the European equivalent of Budweiser.
But enough from me. What beer would you have James Bond drink?
