Breweries… the magical place where beers are born.

Celebrating with Coda Brewing Co

We’re way behind on writing about new breweries. How far behind? Well, we’re just now reviewing Coda Brewing Co in Aurora, after they’ve been in business a full year. But what we lack in punctuality we make up for in persistence, so someday we’ll get around to all the breweries. Fortunately for us we decided to visit Coda Brewing just in time for their 1st Anniversary Party, where we enjoyed an afternoon of fine beer, fanciful […]

Manitou Brewing Co Review | bottlemakesthree.com

Pints and Pretzels at Manitou Brewing Co

It’s been raining a lot in Colorado of late, in case you didn’t know. The weekend before this last one we decided that we’d spent enough time sitting indoors because of the rain, and we decided to head south – where the sun was (mostly) shining and we could enjoy some fresh air and beautiful views. We spent most our afternoon walking around Colorado City and enjoying their annual Territory Days festival. Afterwards we decided to head down […]

Excellent Beers & Beards Abound at Großen Bart Brewery

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! We hope you’re all getting ready for a few days off to relax, recharge, and remember the meaning of this holiday. We certainly are ready for a break from the daily grind! However before we head off to celebrate, we have one more brewery review for you this week. As you may remember, earlier this month we headed north to Longmont to visit a few breweries. Our first stop was 300 Suns […]

Brewery Review: 300 Suns Brewing in Longmont, CO | https://www.bottlemakesthree.com

It’s Always Sunny at 300 Suns Brewing

Recently we’ve been refocusing our efforts on visiting ALL the great breweries in Colorado. At this point we’ve lost track of how many actual breweries exist in the state, but it’s somewhere around 250+ or so, and we’ve only visited around half of them. The horror! To help get us back on track we decided to make a Saturday afternoon trip to the only two breweries in Longmont we haven’t visited yet: 300 Suns Brewing and Großen Bart […]

Beer + Baseball: Blue Moon Brewing Co at the SandLot

Happy MLB Opening Day! Whether you are a baseball fan or not, the beginning of baseball season is something worth celebrating. It’s a real indicator that spring is officially here, and the warm days of summer are just around the corner. The Colorado Rockies beat the Milwaukee Brewers in their opening day game in Milwaukee today! It’s always great to start the year out strong! Hopefully we can keep that dynamic going all season!

Our Visit to Eddyline Restaurant & Brewery

We’re still playing catch-up and bringing you some long overdue brewery reviews from last year on #ThrowbackThursday. Last Thurdsay we brought you part one of our road trip from Durango that took us through Poncha Springs and Buena Vista. In that post we reviewed Elevation Beer Co in Poncha Springs. Today the road trip continues to Buena Vista, home of Eddyline Restaurant & Brewery… so let’s get to it! Eddyline Restaurant We were only in Buena Vista […]

Walnut Brewery in Boulder, CO | Bottlemakesthree.com

Visiting Boulder’s Walnut Brewery

Update: In May 2017, Walnut Brewery was purchased by Boulder Beer Company. The Walnut Brewery location that we write about below has now closed.  On President’s Day last month, we made the trip to Boulder for the grand opening of the new Avery Brewing Co brewery. We figured if we were making the drive to Boulder we may as well hit a few more breweries still on our “need to visit” list, so we left […]

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 […]

Grand Opening at Avery Brewing's new location | bottlemakesthree.com

Inside Avery Brewing’s New Home

For a variety of reasons that we won’t bore you with, we’re a bit behind on blog posts. This month we’ll be playing catch up, bringing you a few new articles about brewery visits we’ve made when there just wasn’t enough time to write. Hopefully by the end of the month our writing will have caught up to our drinking – just in time for spring and the start of beer festival season! Today we […]

Brewery Reviews: Ratio Beerworks & Goldspot Brewing

Typically, we tend to avoid reviewing brewery grand openings. The crowds are usually insane, and occasionally the beers are a bit underwhelming – good, but not quite ready. Typically we like to wait and review breweries after they’ve had a chance to work out all the new-business kinks, when we know they’re a bit more established and their product has been perfected through a few batches. Fortunately, we didn’t run into any of those issues […]

Renegade Brewing opens new production facility in Denver | BottleMakesThree.com

Inside Renegade Brewing’s New Production Facility

This weekend Renegade Brewing Co opened the doors of their new production facility and invited the public to tour their new space. We took this opportunity to stop by both Renegade locations to discuss the big opening, and have some Renegade brews. The new Renegade Brewing at The Yard is on 1st and Santa Fe is just 8 blocks south of their existing brewery and taproom. Renegade signed a lease for the 15,000-square-foot space. Although they’re currently only using […]

Tasters at the Budweiser Tour, Fort Collins CO | BottleMakesThree.com

Inside the Anheuser-Busch Brewery

On Saturday January 3rd Jeff and I ventured into the belly of the beast: We embarked on the Budweiser Tour at Anheuser-Busch in Fort Collins. We know what you’re thinking and, yes, we normally prefer our brewery quite a bit craftier. But one day we hope to succeed at visiting every brewery in Colorado, and every brewery includes the big ones. We decided on a whim to scratch this one off our list. Despite not being a big […]

38 State Brewing in Littleton, CO | BottleMakesThree.com

Fun and Games at 38 State Brewing Company

If there is one thing true about people who live in Colorado, it’s that we’re all fiercely proud to live in Colorado. You can find our state flag on hats and hoodies, shirts and stickers, and just about everything in between. We probably have at least a dozen items in our house emblazoned with our Colorado state logo, and that’s a conservative estimate. And get this: neither Jeff or I were even born in Colorado! Yes, […]

Lost Highway Brewing Co, Denver CO | BottleMakesThree.com

Lost Highway Brewing Company

At long last, Lost Highway Brewing Company is finally open. Can you even believe it?  The sign for this brewery on Colfax has been up forever, and after no activity for such a long time we’d basically written them off. Then they surprised us by finally opening their doors this past September in the space they’ve long-held vacant, next door to the Cheeky Monk Belgian Beer Cafe on Colfax. The location makes sense given that the owners of […]

Crooked Stave, and Why You Should Try Sour Beers

It’s just a few days until Thanksgiving and this year we’ve decided to pass on our typical wine pairings and enjoy some beer with our holiday meal. But not just any beer. This year we’ll be pairing several great Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project sour beers with our turkey dinner. Much like wine, these tart sours pair well with a rich, savory Thanksgiving meal. Given our love of Crooked Stave – we visited their tasting […]
