What People Drink: Facebook HQ

Other Beverage

With Facebook launching new Usernames this week, things got pretty insane at Facebook HQ, with Mashable.com releasing these photos from within the heart of it all. Here is a glimpse into the beverage culture at Facebook:

In the main picture of the blog, there is a bottle of Macallan 12, which tells me one of two things. Either the team is so confident that the username launch is going to go so well that a celebration is imminent, with a bottle of Scotch being the perfect libation to celebrate such a moment, or that things were going to get very terrifying very quickly, and Scotch may be the only thing to calm everyone’s nerves and keep morale up. Either way, a sound strategy.

Facebook Username Launch

In this picture, we have two incidents of fine beverage. First, the gentleman with the bottle of Newcastle is getting his ass kicked at chess. I’m assuming the guy next to him is Justin Long, and I can’t tell who that water belongs to. My guess is that they are playing FOR the bottle of water, winner take all. The Facebookers are fiercely competitive.

Facebook Username Launch

Here the lesson is clear. The dude in the yellow shirt is drinking something non-alcoholic, though I’m not quite sure exactly what it is. A refreshing juice or tea maybe? Well that guy is the workhorse of the crew. The dude next to him is having a sh*t morning cause he doesn’t have anything to drink at all. FOOL. The guy next to him is kicking it having a great time cause he has an icy cold bottle of Miller Lite to sip on.

    Wow, Scotch and Newcastle. Sounds like a perfect work environment for me or a blissful reminder yesterday here at our office.

    Exactly! Except not when playing chess…
