I'm not too concerned. If a jack and coke will get me fired in Austin, I don't want to work for them anyways.

Probably have a lawsuit as wine is sometimes provided at certain catered lunches.

I worked in a R&D department at my last tech job which was way less professional than my current job. 3PM on Fridays they provided beer and you could bring in whatever you wanted -- everyone kept it in moderation so it was never a problem.

Most engineers had a bottle of something hard in their office. It came out from time to time.

Actually, it would be quite the opposite of hurting

That's awesome. It would take a certain group of employees to responsibly handle it.

I usually have 2-3 swallows of homebrew after eating lunch before heading back to work. Not enough to be noticeable, but enough to wash down my food.

I'd love to be allowed a full glass of beer at lunch, but it's against policy, and I don't know if I'll be asked to drive a forlift or operate a molding machine.

A few years ago there were 4 - 5 of us at my work that were hardcore. What I mean is that 5 hour lunches were a regular occurrence...even in the middle of the week. The one day (I vaguely remember), we had 6 pitchers of double Margaritas between the 4 of us (and that was after 2 3 beers). That was an interesting day. My buddy fell asleep in his car in the parking lot at work and his wife called me ~6:00pm that night asking if I knew where he was.

We have never really been that tightly managed at work (fyi...I am in a tech position) if anyone is wondering).

A wife and 2 kids later things have definitely settled down. LOL

Of my two employers, one "neither encourages nor condemns the consumption of alcoholic beverages", but doesn't allow possession on premises without approval. The other has a kegerator.

I know I've wanted to a number of times. My company is right across the street from a local brewpub. When the wind is blowing from the right direction I can smell the mash. Makes my mouth water. mmmmmm

Self-employed and in sales. So yes the 11 AM beer lunches happen fairly often.

I would be out of a job in a big hurry if I drank at lunch. Or any other part of the workday.
