Hi, we’re Chris and Jeff. Welcome to Bottle Makes Three!
You could say that the bottle has been a part of our relationship since the beginning. We met in 1999 over cocktails at happy hour. Our first date consisted of bar and brewery hopping around Denver. Our first kiss was such a boozy blur we still don’t agree about who instigated it, but we do know that vodka played a pretty big role. With more than a decade of good times behind us, the bottle has often played a role in some of our most memorable times. Clearly, we’re a three-some.
While we love all types of booze, over the years we’ve cultivated a great appreciation of craft beer. Living in Colorado means we’re blessed with hundreds of craft breweries, countless beer festivals, and the mack-daddy of annual beer events: the Great American Beer Festival. Originally we started Bottle Makes Three to keep track of the breweries we visited, the beers we drank, and the batches of homebrew we were learning to make. Over time we have learned more the craft behind making great beers, and with this knowledge our appreciation and enjoyment of the beverage has grown.
Our goal as we begin our 3rd year of this site is to have Bottle Makes Three evolve into more than just a journal of our beer adventures. Our plan is to write more content that’s useful and relevant for other beer lovers like us. Look for more beer reviews, more details on upcoming local events, and a lot more writing about topics that are important to those who care about the craft beer industry. We’re obsessed, and we have a lot to say. We hope you find our articles informative, or at least entertaining.
While we’re working hard to bring you more content we have one request: Please, don’t take us too seriously. While we have a lot to say about beer, we don’t pretend to be qualified beer experts nor do we aspire to open a brewery. We just have a passion for craft beer and we want to share our enthusiasm and opinions with anyone who is interested. If you want a technical review from a beer judge, you may want to visit another website. However, if you want a real-talk recommendation from someone who could be your drinking buddy, well then you’ve found the right place.
Have a recommendation for a beer we should try or place we need to visit for a drink? Better yet, you wanna buy us a beer? Join in the conversation by posting comments on our post or contacting us using the form at the bottom of this page. We’d love to hear from you.
Thanks again for visiting!
