  • “Whenever I go out drinking the first thing I ask is do you have a charity beer on tap. Because I wanna support those who support others.” – [2:43] Michael Peacock
  • “If I’m out and about drinking beers and I’m drinking out of a can at a location and the draft system is sitting right there a few feet from me… I’m doing it on purpose because the draught system is not drinkable there.” – [37:35] Michael Peacock
  • “Selling the first beer is easy. Here’s the key; can you sell the next one? You are certainly not going to if your draught system is tainting that liquid gold.” – [57:06] Michael Peacock
