The phrase used to be "eat your own dog food," and it refers to the idea that people should actually use the products they create. I definitely agree with that one. Quinn here is changing the expression to "drink your own champagne," presumably because eating dog food is objectionable. But to many people, so is drinking champagne. Maybe the expression should be changed to "use your own product" in celebration of internationalism and direct language.
