The tasting notes, on the other hand, had me cocking my head. Clove in Blanche de Chambly? Banana in Hoegaarden? Everyone's taste buds are different, true, but really...?

You can tell for certain when two glasses of the same beer or bubbly are served side by side and one remains frothier than the other. Dear restaurateurs: Rinse your glassware. Now rinse again.

So it's ok to cork and cage a $60-$120 bottle of Champagne, but not a $20-$30 bottle of beer?
What's the difference? As if the cork and cage is so much more work to get off anyway. What a crock.
Has he ever thought that maybe, just maybe, some people DON'T WANT TO BUY VEUVE! Maybe, just maybe, SOME PEOPLE DON'T LIKE CHAMPAGNE! Maybe some people want a beer!
