* ''Series/BurnNotice'' -- Michael Westen's fashion sense and the Miami setting suggest the former, but the work he gets is more or less stale beer (Westen emphasizes the boredom a ''lot'' in his voiceover narration) with a few flashy scenes/explosions per episode. A good description might be "Stale Beer in a Martini Glass." On the other hand, the work Michael was doing before he was burned was distinctly Stale Beer, and (patriot that he is), he wants to go back to ''that'' life.

* ''ComicBook/MariaHill'', like Nick Fury below, started as Stale Beer (she was first brought in to be the interim Executive Director of a government agency because she was established as serious enough to follow the agenda), but the Martini was already there, as she had to supervise superheroes and she inherited Helicarriers as part of the job. It didn't take long to take a turn towards full Martini (shapeshifting RubberForeheadAliens invading the Earth) and the comic became some kind of martini/beer cocktail.

* ''LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties'', when it's not being a harem comedy, is a show about the intelligence community's chaotic response to FirstContact. This is a show with [[{{Catgirl}} catgirls]] in [[LatexSpaceSuit catsuits]], {{Otherkin}} who steal misplaced Russian missiles, and dog aliens selling arms to the CIA. Contains Bathtub Gin, as the male lead is probably the only person in the city who is ''not'' a spy for anyone.
