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 […]

Starting The Year Odd at Odd13 Brewing

Hi there… remember us? Yes, we were pretty absent over the holidays, when all the craziness of the season kept us from writing as often as we’d like. Fortunately, the start of 2016 has gotten us motivated to get back on the (or off?) the wagon. Today we’re kicking off the year with a recap of the first new (to us) brewery we visited in 2016: Odd13 Brewing Inc. in Lafayette, Colorado.

Cats, Robots and Little Machine Beer

For those of you paying attention, it’s been a few weeks since we posted anything substantial on Bottle Makes Three. A variety of things have stood in the way of our writing. You can chalk a lot of it up to the typical “busy time of the year” excuse I make each fall because these last few months of each calendar year do get pretty stressful at work. But beyond that, I just have been […]

Wibby Brewing, For the Love of Lager

Walk down the beer coolers at your local beer store and you’re likely to see two things: lots of American adjunct lagers made by big-name breweries, and (hopefully) a large variety of craft ales from smaller, local craft beer brewers. For a long time, it seemed that was the way the beer coolers were divided: Mass-produced lagers for the light beer drinkers, and crafty ales for the more discriminating craft beer fans. Still, the focus […]

CO-Brew Brewery & Homebrew Shop in Denver, CO | BottleMakesThree.com

We’re Brewing Again Thanks To CO-Brew

It’s ridiculous that it took us so long to get to CO-Brew. This homebrew shop and brewery has been open a few months, and they’re less than a block from my office. We literally drive past them every day on our commute home from work, yet we hadn’t stopped. One night after work we finally got a sign that we should stop in for a beer. This sign…

Opening This Weekend: Great Frontier Brewing & Tivoli Brewing

TGIF y’all! We don’t know about you, but we’re so ready to start this weekend. The cooler weather we experienced mid-week is a reminder that we’re only guaranteed a few more hot summer weekends, so it’s time to take advantage of them while we can. For us that means some hiking, spending some quality time in the backyard, and taking advantage of sitting on a sunny patio somewhere to enjoy some delicious craft beers.

Sierra Nevada at Mills River

There are over 3000 breweries operating in the United States, with more opening nearly every day. While they all certainly have their individual merits, there are only a handful breweries that can be considered true tourist destinations. During last month’s trip to Asheville for the Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference, we were able to visit one of these destination breweries: Sierra Nevada in Mills River.

Escaping Reality at FERMÆNTRA

I know it seems like all we do is visit great breweries and drink craft beer. If only that were true. In reality, we both work totally beer-free desk jobs Monday through Friday. We sit at our computers all day long, trying to solve problems and put out figurative fires for our employers, all without a single craft beverage in sight. By Thursday afternoon we need a break from the meetings, the conference calls, and […]
