    We use to drink a few during lunch when I did construction. There was a pub right next to the place we were building. I don't think I was of age at the time either. They just kind of gave it to us without asking.

    Bad idea. But not a big deal necessarily.
    I worked at a place where a few of the lads would drink
    throughout the day which isn't a good thing when you
    have to deal with customers.
    I save all my drinking for home..... alone. Not a good
    thing either necessarily.

    I got no problem with it. My employer does, though, so I abstain. I've had employers that really don't care. In fact during the interview lunch from my first post-college job, I won points with my future boss by boldly ordering a Beck's (and giving him implicit permission to do the same). There were four of us there, and the other interviewer/interviewee pair drank water. The guy I was interviewing with said he was hoping I would order a beer. I think it helped me get the job.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    I don't even eat lunch at work.

    A coworker was telling me that back in the day living in NYC, she would have a couple of beers wtih lunch every day, it was the normal thing to do.

    I had pizza and beer for lunch one day. That was nice. More often would be nicer.

    I don't but some folks I work with do on Fridays.

    I was at a Siemens cable manufacturing plant near Munich once where they had a pop machine loaded with beer in the lunch room. When in Bavaria...

    It's called liquid nourishment.
    You should see my coworkers and I on business trips. Thank goodness that only happens once a year. I can't handle drinking that much regularly.

    Uhhh... yeah.

    Every job I've had since graduating college involved a few beers, sometime more, at lunch a few times a month. Even with the boss, the boss's boss, and other pretty important people.

    Hell, my last job I had small BBQ's at my house (1/4 mile away) during lunch a bunch of times with everyone from the office. Then there was my boss's boss's b-day, haha probably the best lunch I ever had.

    First job out of school, every 'going away' lunch always involved getting a little tipsy.


    It really only becomes a problem when you routinely come back to the office visibly drunk and/or don't behave yourself.

    OK, no.

    In my younger days I did on occasion, but later when my career depended more on leadership, making good decisions and having enough presence of mind to avoid cutting off my fingers or falling to my death...I made it a firm rule to abstain.

    If I'm with coworkers, the consensus seemed to be that we weren't to have a drink with lunch. I would still occasionally get a beer with a lunch if it was just me. I had to stop, because it would just put me to sleep after lunch.

    Corporate policy (yes, there's a corporate policy on it) says it's okay. But my immediate management would disapprove regardless, so no.
    I think the policy's there to allow the marketing types to do what they must

    At work, no. The idea is that sometimes in marketing, you're taking clients to lunch and/or for drinks. Alcohol can grease the wheels for a good pitch. Sales can be the same way. Having a beer at lunch in no way equates to getting fitshaced nor excuses it. I had times where I wanted to order a margarita with lunch at the mexican place, but none of my other coworkers nor my superiors ever ordered any drinks, so I just played it safe.

    I am not one to drink before dinner anyway so no. I doubt if any of my coworkers would drink during lunch either.

    In the U.S., never.

    When I lived in Mexico City, almost always if it was a "business lunch" (sit down to eat about 3 p.m., lunch over about 5:30 p.m., back to the office).

    When I lived in the UK - me, never; Brits, almost always.
