Blog: Olly WehringHow to test Heineken's sense of humour

Olly Wehring | 18 May 2016

Greetings from Zurich. Here as a guest of Heineken's Amstel brand, I'm due to sit down later today with the group's senior global director for international brands, Walter Drenth.

Then, this evening, we're off to Basel for the Europa League final between Liverpool and Sevilla. I have a vested interest, having been a Liverpool fan since I was five. Naturally, I'm very excited and shall wear my club shirt with pride.

I just hope the folk at Amstel have a sense of humour.
