Looks to me like it is based on an imprint from 100+ years ago. It may be something modern, simply 'styled' this way however. Either way I think it is a great example of where type fashion is at the moment--strangely looking back 100+ years or so. I guess thank you Read Dead Redemption. I guess thank you Clint Eastwood.

Good to see Heiny's inability to apply a true apostrophe dates back one hundred years.

WTF is Bond doing drinking Heineken?
Imagine the wine scenario in From Russia With Love transposed to beer: Robert Shaw would have ordered the Heineken, Bond a Bass or Guinness.

I look forward to future Bond movies set with historical accuracy in the 1960s.

That will give Mark Simonson the opportunity to add to his wonderful typecast thread.

Guinness with fish – tut!

@Ryan: The smallish type above the edge says ‘Limited Edition Episodes’ — so it is fair to guess that an image of an old beer bottle has been used.
