Update: In May 2017, Walnut Brewery was purchased by Boulder Beer Company. The Walnut Brewery location that we write about below has now closed. On President’s Day last month, we made the trip to Boulder for the grand opening of the new Avery Brewing Co brewery. We figured if we were making the drive to Boulder we may as well hit a few more breweries still on our “need to visit” list, so we left […]
Last month we put our day off for President’s Day to good use. February 16 was a cold and snowy day, but it was also the day that Avery Brewing Co celebrated the grand opening of their new brewery facility in Boulder/Gunbarrel. We couldn’t think of a better way to enjoy our day off work, so despite the weather, we hit the road to Boulder, and set our navigation for the new & improved Avery […]
When we started this little adventure called Bottle Makes Three we had the silly notion that we could visit all 200 or so Colorado Breweries in one year. Maybe we could have done it too if only we didn’t have jobs to work, cats to feed, and a mortgage to pay. While we are still trying to get to all of the great breweries as part of our Colorado Brewery Challenge, clearly finishing our challenge […]
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 […]
We recently spent a sunny Sunday afternoon in Boulder, hiking and drinking, drinking and hiking. We wrote about our hike up Bald Mountain and our beers at Twisted Pine in our last post. Next up was a visit to another Boulder brewery, FATE Brewing Company.
So if there is one downfall to drinking a lot of good craft beer, it has to be the little extra poundage it can add to your midsection if you’re not careful. Yep, the good old beer belly. It’s a never-ending battle to be able to consume lots of yummy craft beers, without causing too much damage on the scale. This is why when we planned a little brewery excursion to Boulder on Sunday, July […]
For us, summer just isn’t complete if we don’t get to spend a nice sunny afternoon in Boulder. Surrounded by beautiful mountain views is some of the best hiking, shopping, food and drink that Colorado has to offer. There is always something happening in Boulder, and this weekend, we took a spur of the moment trip to see what fun we could drum up. We ended up visiting two great Boulder craft breweries: West Flanders […]
