What Beer Bubble?

The Brewers Association released their annual growth figures last week, announcing that once again in 2015 craft brewers continue to experience double-digit market growth. Our news feeds were quick to fill up with articles about the beer industry growth and the continued success of craft breweries nationwide.

Cats, Robots and Little Machine Beer

For those of you paying attention, it’s been a few weeks since we posted anything substantial on Bottle Makes Three. A variety of things have stood in the way of our writing.

I’ve known about Bull & Bush Pub and Brewery for years, but not only have we never visited, I hadn’t even driven been by the place. It’s kind of off the beaten path in Cherry Creek. Maybe they like it that way, so that only those smart enough to come looking will find this hidden treasure of a pub. It’s certainly not a newcomer to the scene, as Bull & Bush Pub has been around […]

Recovering From St. Paddy’s Shenanigans at Rockyard Brewing Company

Happy “You Survived St. Patrick’s Day” Day! Are you recovered from all your holiday shenanigans? We’re mostly recovered, but it was definitely touch-and-go for a bit. We spent a day celebrating the holiday with our Colorado Parrot Head Club friends. Our group participated in the Denver St. Patrick’s Day Parade, so the celebration started early and continued all day long! We spent the night at a Denver hotel so we could safely imbibe with a […]
