Today we want to tell you about these two new brews and how they left […]

Oskar Blues Brewery's summer seasonal, FUGLI Yuzu & Ugli Fruit IPA, is back for summer 2018.

Spring May Be Ugly, but Summer Will Be FUGLI

Springtime in Colorado is anything but boring. One day we’re drinking on the patio in shorts and flip-flops. The next day our patio furniture is covered in snow. Sun, rain, snow, wind… anything goes this time of year. Sometimes spring weather can be just plain ugly. Fortunately, summer is just around the corner and ready to bring with it some sunshine, warm breezes, and plenty of seasonal summer beers. One of last year’s summer brews […]

New Belgium Brewing's 2016 Lips of Faith collaboration beers | BottleMakesThree.com

New Belgium Collaborates With Old Belgium for Lips Of Faith 2016

This year New Belgium Brewing is celebrating their 25th anniversary. Can you even believe that? We’re pretty sure there is a joke in there about still calling them “New” Belgium after all these years. Clearly, they’re one of the old-timers in the craft beer scene. Still, we respect New Belgium Brewing too much to take this accomplishment lightly. After all, a hefty portion of today’s craft breweries wasn’t even a dream 25 years ago. Many […]

Goose Summer Ale, Our Current BFF

When you drink beer and write about beer as we do, you often find yourself getting the same question: “What’s your favorite beer?” We usually give a silly, meaningless response like, “The one in my hand,” because honestly, that’s a very complicated question to answer.

But don’t let the forecast fool you, spring has sprung, and summer is just around the corner. Summer brings with it the promise of long sunny days, outdoor fun and enjoying plenty of great craft beers. Session beers, or beers with an ABV of […]
