It’s Awfully Quiet

It’s been incredibly quiet around here lately, and for that we’re really sorry. Our extended absence wasn’t planned, but it was necessary. The past few months, maybe even the last year, has been totally ridiculous. To say we’ve been busy would be an understatement. We were drowning in obligations and responsibilities. Sometimes they were boring things that we just had to get done. Other times we were admittedly busy having too much fun to slow down […]

To All the 2016 Beer Bloggers Conference Attendees

There is less than a month before the 2016 Beer Bloggers and Writers Conference (BBC) storms the shore of Tampa Bay, much like the pirates who invade by ship each year during Gasparilla. If you’ve been to the conference before, we don’t have to tell you what a fun trip this will be. If you haven’t, well, we’ve written before about how incredible the BBC is and I’m sure this year will be no different. If you write about beer in […]

Recap: Rogue Beer Dinner at The Kitchen

Last night I was fortunate enough to attend a Rogue Ales beer dinner at The Kitchen. It was incredible.

I definitely got the better end of that deal. Just check out this […]

First Draft: Denver’s First Self-Service Taphouse

The RiNo neighborhood of Denver is already spoiled with more than their share of great breweries, bars, and watering holes, so when we heard that a new self-service beer bar was opening we were a bit skeptical. Was another RiNo beer bar necessary? Was this self-service thing just a gimmick? What’s the big deal about pouring your own beer? We decided to pay First Draft a visit the day after they opened to the public. We were more than a little […]

Tasters at the Budweiser Tour, Fort Collins CO | BottleMakesThree.com

Inside the Anheuser-Busch Brewery

On Saturday January 3rd Jeff and I ventured into the belly of the beast: We embarked on the Budweiser Tour at Anheuser-Busch in Fort Collins. We know what you’re thinking and, yes, we normally prefer our brewery quite a bit craftier. But one day we hope to succeed at visiting every brewery in Colorado, and every brewery includes the big ones. We decided on a whim to scratch this one off our list. Despite not being a big […]

Denver Bacon and Beer Fest Recap

Did you hear the one about the couple who went to the 2014 Denver Bacon and Beer Festival, and wound up in a food coma that lasted a week? It left them unable to think about, much less write about, anything having to do with food or beer. No punchline here, but we’ll throw you a few puns: We would have written but we weren’t bacon any sense. All the delicious food and beer was bacon […]
