Cheers to Beaujolais Nouveau!

beaujolais1Just in time to grace Thanksgiving tables, the third Thursday in November marks the unveiling of the new bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau and last night at midnight the corks were a popping!

According to the AP, “… Beaujolais Nouveau is not expensive, you can buy a bottle for four to six euros ($5-7.50). It’s profitable in times of crisis,” said Daniel Bulliat, a vintner and president of Beaujolais-Beaujolais Village winemakers association.

“The annual arrival of the young, fruity and heavily marketed wine is generally a cause for parties from Beijing to Las Vegas. Connoisseurs, though, say it is too light to be considered a serious wine.” – I say, if you like it, I’ll toast to that!

Here’s where you can toast tonight in DC..

The Washington Club

Midtown Lounge

Beer Lovers Unite!

pict-brickbar1Men’s Fitness picked America’s Five Best Bars for Beer Lovers.  Making the list here in DC is Brickskeller… though I think they’re confused about it’s geographic location…

“This Georgetown institution has been serving cheap food—and offering an incredible selection of beers—since 1957. Housed in the Brickskeller Inn, the bar offers an exhaustive list of beers from around the world. How about a cold Zagorka from Bulgaria?”
