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, […]

We’re Back! Plus 3 New Colorado Breweries To Visit This Weekend

It took longer than we expected, but we are back! Well, if we’re being honest, we’re back-ish. We have wrapped up most of the things that have kept us so overwhelmed and busy the past few months, which is great. Unfortunately, we still haven’t been anywhere or done anything, so there’s not a lot to share…. yet. That all changes tonight, when we finally get back out there, visit some breweries, and get back to […]

We Are Almost Certainly Not Dead

Howdy friends. It’s been a while, so we thought we should reassure everyone that we’re still alive. Not only that, but we’re still alive and drinking! We just haven’t been able to make time to write about it for quite some time. In fact, we haven’t gotten out nearly enough the last few weeks. It sucks, but the upside is that we’ve finally cleared out a lot of beer in our beer fridge. Here’s some […]

The end of prohibition, December 5, 1933

Celebrate Repeal Day & Party Like It’s 1933 at the Cruise Room

Happy Repeal Day! Today marks an important day in American history for all of you fellow libation lovers out there. It was on this day 84 years ago that prohibition was repealed after 13 long, dry years. Prohibition was a dark time for the country, and we don’t say that just because we like booze. The 18th Amendment, which was ratified on January 29, 1919, and took effect in early 1920, prohibited the manufacturing, transportation, […]

A Toast For You on National Beer Lover’s Day

Friends of Bottle Makes Three, stop everything…. today is National Beer Lover’s Day! Isn’t Every Day National Beer Lover’s Day? Yes, it’s true that we love beer every day. Still, someone decided that annually on September 7 we should officially celebrate National Beer Lover’s Day and who are we to stop them? Clearly, it’s just a silly, made-up internet holiday. But if we’re going to celebrate every other weird holiday (I’m looking at you, Talk Like a […]

Out With the Old, In With the New

Hey guys, guess what? It’s 2017! We finally made it out of the dumpster fire that was 2016 and can once again be optimistic about the start of a new year. Or at least that’s how I was feeling on New Year’s Day, just before I got hit with the flu bug. We can’t blame 2017 for the virus, clearly the bug was just one final attack from 2016. Well played, 2016. You found a […]
