Champagne at the Bit

I thought I knew what a Magnum of champagne was, but I was wrong. A Magnum actually means two bottles of champagne. Did you know there are other names for larger quantities?

Check these bad boys out
(Looks like someone robbed
the Bible for these names):

Magnum = 2 bottles
Jeroboam = 4 bottles
Rehoboam = 6 bottles
Methuselah = 8 bottles
Salmanazar = 12 bottles
Balthazar = 16 bottles
Nebuchadnezzar = 20 bottles

It's better than 2 bottles of champagne, it's 2 bottles worth of champagne in one giant bottle!

Ok, I thought Magnum was some kind of gun or '80s detective show, but you and Google have set me straight.

Look, a picture. I really want to throw a party large enough to justify opening a Nebuchadnezzar.

I can't imagine what would justify the use of a Nebuchadnezzar, but I think this might help guide our Burning Man project for next year... Oh, yeah!

Perhaps a 3-story pyramid of champagne glasses?

How would you pour such a bottle? It would seem too frat-boy to use a siphon.

[fid] We'd need some kind of giant crane, shaped like a waitor's well manicured hand.
