Battle of the Bottles

Crane’s BeachHouse Hotel in Delray Beach To Host First TIKI BAR BATTLE OF THE BOTTLES

An Evening of Tasty Sips & Samples – April 12

(Delray Beach, FL – March 25, 2013) Cathy Balestriere, general manager of Crane’s BeachHouse Hotel & Tiki Bar, today announced that the popular, Key West-style boutique hotel is hosting its first TIKI BAR BATTLE OF THE BOTTLES next month.

The wine and food-filled event will be held on Friday, April 12, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the poolside Tiki Bar at Crane’s BeachHouse Hotel, which is located at 82 Gleason Street in Delray Beach, just one block south of Atlantic Avenue and one block west of the Atlantic Ocean.

“Our first TIKI BAR BATTLE OF THE BOTTLES is perfect for young professionals, event planners and fun-loving oenophiles who want to sample 10 delicious wines from three different California-based vintners: Cupcake Vineyards, Layer Cake Wines and Cakebread Cellars,” said Balestriere.

Cupcake wines are “fruit-forward, indulgent and approachable – wines meant to be enjoyed with an occasion.” Layer Cake wines are about “affordable luxury,” and Cakebread Cellers is widely recognized for its “quality, consistency and continuity.”

“And because they all have ‘cake’ in their name, it is appropriate that we serve a variety of bakery treats for pairing purposes, along with other delicious munchables, such as antipasto selections and menu tastings from hot local restaurants such as the Bonefish Grill,” Balestriere added.

Admission is only $20 per person (must be 21 or older). Each participant will receive a punch card that will cover one wine sample of each of the 10 wines, plus one bonus shot – 11 different wine samples for each person.

All of the sample wines will be available for purchase by the glass at half-price during the TIKI BAR BATTLE OF THE BOTTLES at Crane’s BeachHouse Hotel. In addition, live music will be provided by the dynamic DYMiN.
