James Bond to Drink Heineken: Pay Attention, 007!

Advertising Age has reported that Heineken USA and the producers of Skyfall, the next Bond movie, have struck a deal which will have James drinking a Heineken on screen.  Apparently it’s the first time Bond has appeared with a branded brew, and I’m sure Heineken spent a pretty penny to have their product integrated into the film.

I just did a post over on TODAY listing the five beers I’d choose for 007 instead of a skunky Heineken (you can see them here), but I’d love to hear what you guys and girls can come up with.

What beer would you equip Mr. Bond with if you were Q?  As always, let us know below!

    Heineken? Is it shaken or stirred?

    No beer suggestions for Bond. That would be blasphemy. To be true to the character you gotta stick with a dry martini in a deep champagne goblet and specifically ordered as follows:

    “Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?”

      It’d be awesome if he actually ordered a Cement Mixer, and Bond wannabes around the globe all wound up following suit:

      “One shot of Bailey’s, one glass with half 151 and half lime juice. Pour them both in my mouth and then shake it – don’t stir. Got it?”

      Hmm..this drink got kinda chunky…

        I’m sure Don’s swallowed worse.

        Better yet 007 Body Shots:

        “Hand me that salt shaker, pour one shot of Cuervo in your navel, put this lime between your teeth, and lay very still. Do not shake or stir! Got it?”

      And he went Rogue in GoldenEye, too, right?

    I think it would all depend on what situation he was in, and where. Except for the Martini fetish, Bond always knew what to order locally, being the Man of the World he is. If he was in a bar frequented by underworld types, a Heineken may be just what is needed. Now if he was on the trail of Silicon Valley insiders selling info the Chinese, any northern California brew would do. :)

      Hmm…what do they drink on Madison Avenue? Because it seems that’s where he’s spending most of his time.

        Probably Apple-tinis.
