"In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts... So in old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them "Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down."

It's where we get the phrase "mind your P's and Q's" "

This is wrong actually. It comes from the printers who used the old typeset style of printing where they manually had to put the letters on the printing press themselves. And as they had to watch what they were doing they had to "mind there P's and Q's"
