Helpful Hints from joeeze: How to make your champagne more bubbly

Lager glasses in pubs here have designs laser-cut into the base. The very sharp edges of the cuts act as nucleation sites, leading to a steady stream of bubbles from the bottom of the glass, and incidentally beer that goes flat quicker.
