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 Bottle Makes Three.

Road Trip: 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 […]

There’s Much To Enjoy at Westbound & Down Brewing

We didn’t wake up planning to visit Westbound & Down Brewing Company. Like most every weekend we woke with no real destination in mind, but the goal to visit a new, local craft brewery. No matter how busy our schedules may be during the week, a brewery visit is a fun way to spend a rather uneventful weekend. It helps us try new places, plus it gives us time to press pause on our otherwise […]

Creede Brewing Company brings the Wild West to North Denver

Last week we spent a lazy Sunday afternoon north of downtown Denver searching for some fun and some great craft beer. Our first stop was at Broken Shovels Farm, which we wrote about last week.

Our first stop was to […]
