Looks to me like they have been doing a little sampling!
One surmises they are a keg short on the inventory count against those in the background.
The first picture was taken to show the guy holding the left front wheel off the ground.
It has Blatz Beer logo on the RH door. Blatz was really cheap, something like $2.50 for a case of 24 when I was 18. The deposit on the bottles was $1.20 a case, so you could be out the door for under $5.
I believe it is a 1921-1922 model year touring.
It has the improved body with the narrow arm rests, 3 piece rather than 5 piece rear seat that was introduced during the 1921 model year ref: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/1921-25H.htm where Bruce shared, “In our research it has not been possible to pinpoint the actual date of introduction of the new 1921-style open cars. Our best guess is that it was about the first of the year (1921) in spite of the numerous references to the new bodies during the latter part of 1920. Furthermore, there is little doubt that the earlier-type bodies continued in production at the branches for some time after the Highland Park plant had made the changeover.” Note that body continued into 1925 with minor changes (1923 one man top eliminated the top iron on the sides of the front seat arm rest also slant windshield introduced. 1924 modified for the high cowl firewall. Over time in general less wood and more steel brackets, equal length hinges and metal sill covers).
It has the straight windshield that was discontinued when the 1923 model year began in Sep 1922 [Ref: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/1923.htm ].
When was the photo taken? If someone can photo shop the date on the license tag that would help. The mid 1930’s car in the background as well as the 1930-31 Model A Ton truck in one of the photos make it at least in the mid-1930s and I would guess late 1930s to early 1940s. If the license tag was current and the date can be read, that would narrow down when the photo was taken.
Harder question: Where was the photo taken? I believe a good starting point it the "Akron Brewing Company" (no "The"), incorporated 1934 and produced the White Crown Beer and Ale last brewed in 1943 and out of business in 1947. ref: http://www.ohiobreweriana.com/gallery/misc.shtml
Note on page 117 of the “English Ford Book” they have a series of three photos. One shows a 1914 touring car with two stout wooden poles “lifting bars” mounted across the right hand fenders (they had the dummy door on the right). The other two photos show the four men with the car lifted and turning the car around. Page 171 of Bruce’s book has the 1914 touring shipping weight listed at 1200 pounds. Page 306 shows the 1922 touring with starter and demountables shipping weight at 1620. So the “young man” in the first photo is lifting a good amount.
Looks like they are all having fun. I wonder if that is Mom & Dad with some of their kids and extended family?

Blatz seems to commonly have used jalopy advertising:
