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 It was on this day 84 years ago that prohibition was repealed after 13 long, dry years.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 […]

It’s Awfully Quiet

It’s been incredibly quiet around here lately, and for that, we’re really sorry. Sort of.  Our extended absence wasn’t planned, but it was necessary. For the past year, we’ve been burning the candle at both ends, and we were in serious need of a break from everything. Yep, even Bottle Makes Three. We were juggling way too much and realized we had to step back from everything and just take a break to regroup. So […]

Say Goodnight, Gracie

Warning: This post is a bit sad and has absolutely nothing to do with beer. If you prefer to keep our relationship on a superficial level, where we just have fun and discuss beer, maybe skip this post and come back next time. We’ll be ready to return to our usual boozy capers by then.

Thirsty Throwback Thursday

Autumn has finally arrived in Colorado! It’s not that we’re complaining about the sunny, 80-degree weather that we enjoyed last weekend. It’s just that we’re ready to put away the shorts and get into some sweater weather. Ideally, we’d like to do that before the snow arrives, you know, if that’s not too much to ask. Now that the temperature has finally dropped a bit, if the rain would just leave town then we’d be […]
