Wibby Brewing, For the Love of Lager

Walk down the beer coolers at your local beer store and you’re likely to see two things: lots of American adjunct lagers made by big-name breweries, and (hopefully) a large variety of craft ales from smaller, local craft beer brewers. For a long time it seemed that was the way the beer coolers were divided: Mass-produced lagers for the light beer drinkers, and crafty ales for the more discriminating craft beer fans. If your bottle shop has a decent craft beer […]

Excellent Beers & Beards Abound at Großen Bart Brewery

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! We hope you’re all getting ready for a few days off to relax, recharge, and remember the meaning of this holiday. We certainly are ready for a break from the daily grind! However before we head off to celebrate, we have one more brewery review for you this week. As you may remember, earlier this month we headed north to Longmont to visit a few breweries. Our first stop was 300 Suns […]

Brewery Review: 300 Suns Brewing in Longmont, CO | https://www.bottlemakesthree.com

It’s Always Sunny at 300 Suns Brewing

Recently we’ve been refocusing our efforts on visiting ALL the great breweries in Colorado. At this point we’ve lost track of how many actual breweries exist in the state, but it’s somewhere around 250+ or so, and we’ve only visited around half of them. The horror! To help get us back on track we decided to make a Saturday afternoon trip to the only two breweries in Longmont we haven’t visited yet: 300 Suns Brewing and Großen Bart […]

Malty, Hoppy-Scented Memories… of the Fests That Were

It seems like just yesterday we just updated our blog with a flurry of posts, only to fall behind once again.  It’s really not our fault.  It’s summertime, and while the livin’ is easy, the blogging is sort of a pain in the ass.  When the weather is warm and the drinks are cold, it’s easy to lose focus.   It’s difficult to sit in front of the computer when the sunshine and warm breezes […]

AHA Rally at Oskar Blues

When we heard that there was going to be an AHA Rally at Oskar Blues in Longmont, we wasted no time RSVP’ing!  Last summer I attended the AHA Rally at Wynkoop Brewing, and it was a blast, but Jeff was out-of-town and totally missed out.  This time, we were both going to be there to mingle with other homebrewers, sample some unique brews and visit one of our favorite brewery taprooms, the Tasty Weasel. Clearly, […]

Sunday Funday in Longmont at Pumphouse Brewery & Left Hand Brewing

After our G’Knight Ride, we spent the night in Longmont. Partially this was because we knew we’d be drinking and wanted to be responsible.  But it was also so we could fit in a few more brewery stops before we made the trek back home. It’s a good thing we stayed too, because someone left his debit card at the Tasty Weasel last night – DOH! Given that we now had a good excuse to […]

Good Times at the G’Knight Ride

Beer and bikes are two of our favorite things, so we were excited to be participating in the 2nd Annual G’Knight Ride in Longmont. Festivities started at Prospect Park in Longmont, and the entire even was sponsored by Oskar Blues Brewing Company and presented by Bicycle Longmont. Oskar Blues G’Knight Ride This was the first ride of the summer for us, so we were a bit apprehensive about doing the full 10-mile ride. Fortunately, the G’Knight ride […]

Frozen Dead Guys Are Out; Tasty Weasels Are In. Our Trip to Oskar Blues in Longmont.

We weren’t supposed to end up at Oskar Blues Brewery in Longmont. It wasn’t on our agenda when we left the house to pick up our good friends, Shawn and Jessica. We were going to grab a quick breakfast and then all head up to Nederland for the crazy outdoor celebration/drink-fest knows as Frozen Dead Guy Days. We would all spend the day outside, celebrating the dead dude that’s been kept on dry ice in […]
