Thanks to Frontier Airlines and their rock-bottom, no-frills prices, we took another trip to Las Vegas this week. It was an inexpensive spur of the moment trip that came at just the right time, getting us out of the daily rainstorms in Colorado and into the blazing hot sun of Nevada. It was fabulous to spend days at the pool and nights knocking back drinks at the craps table. After three days of excessive drinking, […]
“Patty cake, patty cake with no hands, Got me in this club making wedding plans. If I can take pictures while you do your dance I can make you famous on Instagram…” – Lyrics to ‘Wiggle‘ by Jason DeRulo
So last week, quietly and without any fanfare, we posted our 100th blog post on Bottle Makes Three. I guess it’s time to admit that we’re bloggers. We are like legit, for real bloggers.
We went to the Slue Foot Sue’s Shindig last night, and what a barn-burner it was! Let’s not even pretend this is a review and call it what it is: proof that whenever Imbibe throws a party y’all need to go! Imbibe throws parties that will knock your socks off. In fact if you aren’t wearing any socks they will actually place socks on you just so they can knock them bitches off. Okay perhaps […]
Spring has sprung people! While we still get the occasional cooler weather pattern traipsing through our state, the sunny and warm days are beginning to outnumber the chilly ones. It’s about fucking time, wouldn’t you say? I mean, winter in Colorado is lovely and not even as snowy as people who live outside the state seem to imagine, but this year it’s totally over-stayed its welcome. Spending a lazy afternoon sipping drinks on a sunny […]
Te amo tequila. Sure, I can say that now, but it wasn’t always that way. Tequila and I have had some falling outs over the years. The first one I remember happened shortly after turning 21. That’s when a night of tequila shots and dancing led to me having to shampoo out my roommate’s car the next day. Don’t ask. For years I couldn’t even smell tequila (or even limes, for being an accessory to […]
Happy May Day! While most of us don’t have big May Day celebrations planned, May is the time of year when the Colorado Beer Festival season really starts to heat up and that’s certainly worth celebrating. While there are events every weekend in one corner of the state or another, we’re going to focus on just a few fun events or festivals that are near and/or dear to us. For an even bigger list of […]
“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.” – Mark Twain We don’t know about too much, but now and then it’s fun to set the beer stein aside and belly up to the bar for something a bit stronger. Recently we got just the opportunity to do that thanks to Yelp Denver and the folks over at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey.
It was around 7:30 pm on opening day when I ran into David Lin cleaning what appeared to be vomit out of one of the urinals at Comrade Brewing Company. It was a nasty job, but Lin seemed fairly unphased. After all, he had opened Comrade Brewing to the public earlier that same day, and if the steady crowds were any indication, the grand opening was a smashing success. Clearly, it would take more than […]
If you know anything about us, you know that we really like beer. Maybe you like beer too, I mean, why wouldn’t you? With such a rich history and an incredible assortment of varieties, what’s not to love? Now that we agree that beer is good, did you know that it can also be good for you? It seems like wine always gets the credit for being the “healthy” way to imbibe, but the truth […]
We have waited far too to cross Dad and Dudes Breweria off our Colorado Brewery Challenge list. Truth is, we’ve been here a few times we just never got around to writing about our visits because, to be honest, we left with very little to say. You see, those first visits occurred shortly after Dad and Dudes Breweria first opened their brew pub in Aurora, and we were not particularly impressed. During those initial visits Dad and […]
