Full-length studio portrait of six men, three standing and three sitting. On the left is a goat. Attached to the painted backdrop, a poster for the Calumet Brewing Company, featuring a goat, can be seen behind the men. Most of the men are wearing suits, and all are wearings hats and holding beer mugs. Two groups are clinking their mugs in a toast. The seated man on the right is holding a bottle of Golden Gate Fruit Company's Apricot Brandy on his knee.
