Time to Plan Your Road Trip: The 22nd Annual Colorado Brewers Rendezvous Takes Place in Salida on July 14

There is something about summertime in Colorado that always makes us want to explore. We love to pack our car up for the weekend and hit the road, discovering new places and taking in all the beauty and adventure Colorado offers along the route. Of course, it’s even better when there’s great craft beer at the end of the trip, which is why we’re big fans of the Colorado Brewers Rendezvous. This fantastic beer fest […]

Exploring Evergreen and Evergreen Brewery

Hellooo friends of Bottle Makes Three!  Yes, it’s been a while. We know we’ve been bad beer bloggers.

We can’t wait to get back to sharing our beer adventures! In fact, we just visited a “new to us” brewery this weekend, Evergreen […]

A Day of Drinking in Durango: Our Trip to Ska Brewing’s 22nd Anniversary Party

Hey friends, are you as happy as we are that it’s the weekend? The past month has felt like “all work and no play” for your friends at BMT. We have both been so tied up in projects at our day jobs that we have been sadly absent around here. Have you missed us? Regardless of your answer, we missed sharing our Bottle Makes Three adventures with you. In fact, we lots of great stories […]

Escape to Fremont County and Florence Brewing Company

On the way home from our recent Salida road trip, we decided to do some exploring. One of our stops was in Florence, where we checked out Florence Brewing Company. But before we made it to the brewery, we made a quick stop and did some time in Canon City at the Museum of Colorado Prisons. Read on to learn about our time behind bars, and our escape to Florence Brewing Co. Highway 50 Drive […]

Our First Time: Salida & The Colorado Brewers Rendezvous

Last weekend we took a quick road trip to Salida to attend our first-ever Colorado Brewers Rendezvous. It’s nuts that it took us so long to attend this beer festival. This year marked the 21st Annual Colorado Brewers Rendezvous, so how had we always seemed to miss out? So many folks told us that this is a “must go” event, so we finally decided we had to make it happen. The bonus was that we’d also […]

Happy Thanks-Living at Broken Shovels Farm

After weeks of unseasonably warm weather in Colorado, nobody is happier than we are that fall has finally arrived. This past Sunday was sunny but cool, and with nothing on our calendar and no Bronco’s game on the TV, we thought it was high time we got out to enjoy the season. Our little Sunday afternoon road trip took us north of Denver for some homespun fun at Broken Shovels Farm, followed by beers at […]

5 (More) Boulder Breweries Worth A Visit

One of the best things about living in central Colorado is that we can point the car in almost any direction, and find a fun day trip at a little city or town an hour or two away. So this past weekend that’s exactly what we did. We hadn’t been to Boulder in some time, so we directed our Jeep towards the Flatirons for a day of exploration. Boulder is a fun city with a whole personality […]

Exploring the Breweries of Estes Park

Last weekend we decided to escape the heat of the front range and head to the Colorado mountains. More specifically, we realized we hadn’t been to Estes Park in a while, and a sunny, summer day seemed like the perfect time for a quick road trip. Estes Park is a beautiful and bountiful mountain town, filled with shops, outdoor activities and three breweries – none of which we have visited yet. The plan was to spend a […]

What’s Brewing in Broomfield

This weekend something rare and wonderful happened: we had nothing on our calendar! I can’t stress enough how rarely that happens to us. It’s crazy how busy life can seem sometimes, which is why it’s incredible whenever we can wake up in the morning with no agenda, no plans, and no commitments for the day. We decided to spend our free day doing what we love best, exploring some great Colorado craft breweries! After checking our […]

Exploring the Brews at Elevation Beer Co

We’re catching up on some long overdue posts, and this one is a really overdue one. Consider it a #throwbackthursday post, because we’re taking you all the way back to last September. It was September 7th to be exact, and we were on our way back from Durango after attending the Ska Anniversary Party. Last year we took the Million Dollar Highway home. This time we chose another route, one that would allow us to […]

Four More Fort Collins Craft Breweries

In our last post we visited the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Fort Collins, but no visit to Fort Collins is complete without checking out their incredible craft beer scene. In previous trips we had already visited New Belgium Brewing, Odell Brewing, and Fort Collins Brewing Co. This time we decided to get through a few more new, or new to us, craft brewing spots. There is certainly not a lack of great options, with at least 15 […]

The Breweries of Pagosa Springs

For the past two years we’ve made the 6 hour trip to Durango for the Ska Brewing Anniversary Party each September. But while Ska Brewing is our destination, it’s only one stop in our journey. We make the most of this road trip by visiting our favorite places along the route, which always includes a stop to the fun and lovely town of Pagosa Springs. Pagosa Springs is a beautiful, bustling tourist town located just 35 […]

Our Visit to San Luis Valley Brewing

Last weekend we took a road trip to Durango for Ska Brewing’s annual Anniversary Party and Brewers Invitational. You can read about it here. During our road trip we traveled through several great cities – big and small – a few of which had breweries. It seemed rude not to stop, so we did whenever we could. Today we want to tell you about our first stop in Alamosa to visit San Luis Valley Brewing […]

Ska Brewing Company’s 19th Anniversary Recap

We love this excuse for a road trip every summer, and this party seemed like the perfect reason to hit the road. Here’s a recap of this year’s shindig, or at least what we can remember of it… The Ska Anniversary Party and Brewers Invitational takes over the Ska […]
