Sabering a champagne bottle is an awesome way to pop bottles. It’s easier than you think too, assuming you think it’s difficult. All you need is a sword, confidence, and liability insurance. You don’t actually even need the sword or insurance, but without confidence you’re going to end up looking like an idiot.
Sabrage isn’t just for champagne either. Boulevard Brewing has a Belgian Tripel that they highly recommend chopping the top off. Why let the rich people have all the fun?
