Nice work if you can get it? Don’t ask AmBev.

It was reported this week, that a Brazilian court has ordered the brewing giant to pay €1.7m to an employee whose job turned him to drink. Berd Naveke became an alcoholic after the company made him taste 8 litres of Brahma a day as part of his job, it was claimed.

Naveke told Brazilian daily O Globo: “I came home drunk every night.”

He had held the job for 22 years.
