A Tale of Two Beer Festivals

There is no lack of beer festivals in Colorado during the summer, that’s a fact.  It a downright beerapalooza all summer long!  There are beer festivals galore – big and small, indoor and outdoor, for profit and for a purpose.  In seven days we managed to hit two separate beer festivals:  the Breckenridge Summer Beer Festival in on Saturday July 13th, and the Hops for Habitat Brewfest on Friday, July 19th.  How did they stack […]

Cheers to Our First Year!

On March 1st, Bottle Makes Three celebrated our first year anniversary!  Where has the time gone?  Well, we certainly couldn’t tell ya.  In fact, we didn’t realize we passed the one-year mark until several days later.  I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun! When we started our modest little website it was to document all the fun times we were having, most often over a nice cold craft beer.  We loved Colorado […]

Happy Birthday to Me Part Deux @ New Belgium Brewing

Second stop on our Fort Collins birthday weekend tour:  New Belgium Brewing Company, baby!  We were supposed to be here for my birthday last year, but a blizzard kept us away.   We scheduled this tour months ago and thankfully, the weather was perfect this time around.  Score! Our tour guide was wonderful, but sadly though we asked her name a multitude of times, I still can’t remember it.  I think it was Lisa, so we’ll […]

Happy IPA Day, and Other Reasons to Drink!

We may not have made visits to any breweries this past week, but we did still manage to fit in a few good beers.   Saturday night was spent in Jessica and Shawn’s backyard for some burgers, backyard games, and of course, a few beers.  Jeff got there early and helped ShawnyB brew up a batch of Strawberry Beer.   It looks like it’s going to be a delicious brew, ready just in time for the tail […]

Breckenridge Brewery 22nd Anniversary Party

Breckenridge Brewery turned 22 this weekend, and we were there to help them celebrate.  And by “help them celebrate” I mean drink their beer, eat their food, and generally enjoy wandering around the brewery like we were some sort of VIPs.  This is the party of the summer, and we haven’t missed one yet.  Okay, that’s a total lie.  We never even knew about this party until our friend Jessica heard about it last year.  But since […]

Oops, We Did it Again (at Dry Docks)

We had to visit the Brew Hut this past Sunday for some homebrewing supplies. We decided to go to Dry Dock Brewing for one beer. Just one. Jeff had to try their Hop Abomination, after all. It would be silly to go all that way and not have a pint. In solidarity, I had a Breakwater Pale Ale. We would each have one, and then we would be on our way home to finish our Sunday […]

Our Love / Hate Relationship With Lowry Beer Garden

Lowry Beer Garden opened last week, and we couldn’t wait to get there to check it out! Early reviews and teaser photos had us really excited about this place. Who doesn’t love a beer garden, right? And why should we have to wait till Oktoberfest to visit one? We decided to visit for Happy Hour with our friends Jessica, Shawn and the White Rascal himself (Scott) to check the place out. First Impressions Lowry Beer […]
