Celebrating a Very Different Rockies Home Opener

Tonight at 6:05 p.m. Mountain Time, the Colorado Rockies will throw their first official pitch in Coors Field to kick off the 2020 season. We Love Opening Day at Coors Field For most of the last decade, we’ve considered at the Rockies Home Opener as a bit of a holiday. Usually, the game falls on a Friday afternoon in early April. We both take the day off work and take the Light Rail down to […]

It’s Been a Minute

Hello, friends. Remember us? It’s been awfully quiet here on our little corner of the internet. Has it really been two months? To be clear, we didn’t plan on taking a break. But with so much happening, it seemed like a good idea to take a big step back and accept the unexpected sabbatical. Besides, there are just some things in life more important than beer. Like health, safety, equality, and justice. You know, all […]

Keeping Calm & Carrying Out

Checking In Hi friends, how is everyone doing? No, seriously… how are you? Are you hanging in there? We know that it’s a weird time in the world and we sincerely hope that you are doing well. Us? We’re doing okay, and really can’t complain too much, even though we do it anyway. For us, waking up each day is like pulling the lever of a slot machine and seeing which random lineup of emotions […]

Where Do We Even Begin?

I’ve written and rewritten this post in my head every day this week, but always got stuck on how to start it out. It feels disingenuous to write the same old lighthearted beer stories. Yet, it feels out of character for us to get too serious. But you know what? These are serious times, so be warned – this shit may get real. We normally like to tell the stories of the fun we’re having, […]

Our 2020 Vision

Happy 2020 everyone! We hope you had a wonderful, fun, and relaxing holiday season. We sure did… with emphasis on the relaxing part. Mid-week holidays kept us from doing anything too exciting, so we enjoyed doing nothing over the holidays. Nada. We didn’t even go out and make a spectacle of ourselves for New Year’s Eve. Instead, we watched the ball drop in NYC from our couch, and we were eye-shut long before midnight in […]

Happy Holidays

From Our House to Yours…

2019 has been filled with great brews and big beer news, but today we’re not here for that. In fact, we’ve taken much of this month off from Bottle Makes Three to celebrate the season. We hope you’ve had a chance to slow down and enjoy the holidays with your friends and family, too. However, on this day before Christmas, we wanted to take a quick moment to thank you for supporting us and wish […]

Ryan Reynolds made a hilarious video of fake slogans for Aviation American Gin

We could watch Ryan Reynold’s rejected Aviation American Gin slogans all day…

There’s no shortage of celebrities trying to sell us booze. But the (fake) viral marketing campaign sent out yesterday for Aviation American Gin is enough to make us want to fork over our hard-earned cash for a bottle of the hooch. And that’s saying a lot, considering one of us isn’t even allowed to drink gin anymore. (Don’t worry, he knows why.)

Seasons Greetings from Bottle Makes Three!

Helloooo friends of Bottle Makes Three! You may have noticed that BMT has been on a bit of a sabbatical the past few months. Sorry for all the silent nights around here. The last quarter of 2018 has been packed with exciting changes for us, not the least of which was the somewhat impulsive decision to sell our old house and buy a new one. Apparently, there’s a lot of work involved with staging, listing, […]
