It is rare to watch an episode of Mad Men and not see the characters drinking at work. While most people save the cocktails for happy hour, according to there is a growing trend within tech and media firms that has employees drinking on the job.

From alcohol stocked break rooms and kitchens, to beer vending machines and digitized kegs, bosses in these trend-setting offices believe anything that encourages employees to socialize is a good thing. By allowing, and even encouraging employees to engage in cocktail hour activities that would otherwise take place after work, these companies argue that "their employees are more likely to interact with colleagues from other departments and associate social activities with work."
