A Brazilian has won increased compensation from a brewery after claiming 20
years as a taster made him an alcoholic. Master Brewer Bernd Naveke, 49,
drank around eight liters of beer every working day while at the Brahma
Brewery near Rio de Janeiro. He was forced to leave his job after becoming a
registered alcoholic and hasn't worked since. In the original case he was
awarded $30,000 and a monthly pension for life equal to his old salary of
$2,600. Now a court in Rio has ordered the brewery to pay him $2 million.
