Source = guy who owns a draft line cleaning company.  :-\

He says a hangover is your body fighting bacteria from draft lines. I guess he missed the part about human pathogens not surviving in beer.

+1.  What a crap article. No real journalistic skill wasted there. And I don't see germs on the outside of a draft line as any concern whatsoever.

Hangovers are caused by dehydration and vitamin depletion.  Too many fusel alcohols are often a big part of it too.  I've never heard or seen dirty lines cause a hangover.  They can make great beer taste crap but not much else.   ::)

Many of us would be on a strict liquid diet if it weren't for pretzels.
