Not really a champagne sippa but I’m sure the ladies will enjoy this, and the price.

Will copper be the new platinum? Beau Joie is a new luxury champagne launching in Las Vegas this month. The champagne, which has the slogan of Tonight’s the Knight comes in a bottle encased in a 100% copper, hand-crafted suit of armor. Beau is made of 60 % Pinot Noir and 40 % Chardonnay derived from the finest grapes of Epernay, France. The zero-dosage brut champagne has none of the added sugars common in other champagnes. The suit of armor not only keeps the champagne colder longer, but provides improved grip when opening and serving. It has a rubber punt to ensure enhanced stability when pouring.

“BEAU is a statement-making luxury champagne unlike anything previously available,” said Jon Deitelbaum, President and CEO of Toast Spirits, creator of the champagne. “Infusing qualities like romance, chivalry and fun into a stagnant champagne category, BEAU presents consumers an unparalleled luxury experience. The allure and sexiness of the product is unmistakable, and its price point delivers obtainable luxury. When you order a bottle of BEAU, expect heads to turn.”

The champagne will retail for $79.99.


Drink of the Week: Brooklyn Lager

Posted: May 10, 2010 by Marquess in Drinks

With the summer around the corner, bbq’s about to start-up, what other way is there to kick back and relax with your favorite drink.  As I’ve gotten older hard liqour just aint my style; however I’m a fool for a nice cold beer.  Sure everyone has their favorites, but I’m always experimenting tasting different beers during the seasons.  I actually had the opportunity to try “Brooklyn Lager” on my trip to New York.  Great beer, really smooth, and rich.  It doesn’t leave you with that bloated, “Oh I feel like I’m pregnant feeling either”.  I hate that feeling and normally after 1 glass I can tell if this beer is going to suck, or be a winner.  This was not the case!  The taste is similar to Blue Moon and Samuel Adams if you are a wheat fan.  Now I have to figure out how to get this stuff sent to DC, since alcohol can’t be shipped to MD, or DC residentials!!  But if you have the chance of trying this I highly recommend it.
