As if your happy hour habit needed prodding, a recent study by the Reason Foundation says that drinkers actually earn 10 to 14 percent more than nondrinkers. Danny Versfelt can attest: As bar manager at Al Biernat’s Restaurant for the past eight years, he’s served plenty of executives with thirsty mouths and deep pockets. Next time you sidle up to a bar, make sure you and your beverage send the right message. With Versfelt’s help, we found out what drinks go with what industry and why. Choose carefully and, as always, drink responsibly.
