Drinking at Work: How 11 Companies Celebrate Happy Hour

Slideshow SLIDESHOW: Drinking at Work: How 11 Companies Celebrate Happy Hour

It may be that 3-martini business lunches aren't the norm anymore, but many of today's companies see some value in gathering the staff for an end-of-week drink. Happy hour is a time to celebrate milestones or just encourage group bonding...and sometimes to make some progress on the office's overflowing drinks stash. (Some of the best boozy breaks are probably at tech companies, but unfortunately they tend to keep such perks—like everything else they do behind the scenes—pretty hush-hush.) We recently asked a few friends what kind of drinking they do at work (and if there are any snacks to go along with the booze.)

What's happy hour like at Food & Wine or Saveur? What about the offices of Campari or Anchor Brewing? Check out the slideshow to find out.

Does your office have a happy hour? What do you drink and eat to celebrate together?
