Booze Etiquette

Me: I have a workplace etiquette question.
Coworker: What’s that?
Me: I need to buy some brandy to make brandied cherries. I’m wondering if it’d be acceptable to have a brown paper bag in work.
Coworker: Will it be open?
Me: No.
Coworker: Then yes, it’s fine. It’s around a holiday in a place dominated by people with business degrees. Terry, you’re a bit of an odd duck, you’d probably blend in more if you did.
