Due to serious risk to human life, robot recovery is planned for reaching a possible stash of over 1 million bottles of Champagne trapped beneath Pol Roger’s cellars since structural collapse in 1900.
In February last year, using sonar technology, Pol Roger unearthed 26 bottles of intact Champagne, which are believed to come from the 1898 vintage.
Pol Roger reported that they are potable, with the corks still in tact.

Craft Beer Week, Beer Obstacle Course, & MT Brew Fest all During BeerNow19 – Great Falls Craft Beer Week featuring Mighty Mo Brewing Co., Jeremiah Johnson Brewing, and Black Eagle Brewery seems to be a natural for the first Beer Obstacle Course I’ve ever heard of.
The kick-off event to Craft Beer Week is a fun, but challenging Beer Obstacle Course. Local gyms, climbing centers, and even furniture stores provide the obstacles and we provide the “hydration stations” between the obstacles. Attendee’s get to have a taste of some local beer to help get them through the course while the “spectator section” enjoys live music, food, and a selection of local brews as well.
Check out the events at their website www.gfcraftbeerweek.com.
