Famous Beer and Pub Quotes

Beer and pub quotes for top London pubs

A man devoted to beer - and war

Researching for my blogs, where I talk about only the best London pubs and walking tours, I quite often come across bizarre and interesting facts and stories.  Many are not related to our site and so get dismissed.

But the other day I was talking with a friend about the war (I mentioned it once and think I got away with it.) He mentioned Winston Churchill’s most famous quote (after “we’ll fight them on the beaches” of course), with a woman who said:

“You sir, are drunk.” to which our Winnie replied;
“and madam, you are ugly, but in the morning I shall be sober.”

Which got me to thinking – what other great pub and beer related quotations have come out over the years.  Well, here are a few that I quite liked:
