With just a few hours left in 2014, today is a day of great reflection on all that the past year has given us. For Bottle Makes Three, 2014 was a breakthrough year. We attended our first Beer Bloggers Conference, which has helped us find our voice and understand our role in the craft beer community. We’ve focused on bringing you more interesting content, and while we still have a ways to go to reach our goal of total beer-world domination, we’ve made great progress.
We could bore you with all the stats and numbers that show how we did this year, but that’s not very exciting to the average reader. Instead, we want our 2014 Year in Review to focus on why we work so hard on Bottle Makes Three in the first place. We don’t get paid to do this, we do it for the love of craft beer and our amazing craft beer community. We do it because Bottle Makes Three has given us the opportunity to explore new places and try new things. We do this because we have actual readers now (yay!) and we want to bring you the best in beer news, events and stories, and we hope you find value or entertainment by visiting our site. But most of all, more than anything, we do this because it’s so much fun. We have a blast creating Bottle Makes Three, and we hope our recap shows you how much fun we’ve had behind the scenes while bringing you all these stories.
So, as we leave this year we want to recap all the fun we have in a snazzy 90-second music video filled with selfies, beer-fueled shenanigans, and a cameo by our kitty, Gracie. You can watch Jeff’s face go from hairy to clean-shaven and back again. And most of all, you can see how much fun we’ve had being Bottle Makes Three in 2014. We look forward to making more great memories in 2015.

Hoppy New Year!
We had a great year, and we thank you for hanging out here with us in 2014. Have a safe and happy new year, and we’ll be back to bring you more boozy news and fun in 2015!
Jeff & Chris
