Hello! We’re Jeff and Chris, and we love craft beer.

We built our relationship over great craft beers, quite literally. We met well before the craft beer renaissance really exploded in Colorado, yet we spent our first date tasting beers at two different local breweries. During those first few pints and the many that followed we discovered a shared passion for craft beers. You could say that beer has been the third-wheel in our relationship since the beginning.

In early 2012 we created Bottle Makes Three as a way to share our love and enthusiasm of Colorado craft beer. Our state is currently home to nearly 300 craft breweries, with more opening faster than the average beer lover can keep up! At Bottle Makes Three we want to help you navigate our incredible and diverse beer landscape. Think of us as your beer geek best friends. By following Bottle Makes Three we’ll keep you informed on all the happenings in Colorado, including new brewery openings, fun festivals and events, and all the local and national news that affects our been scene. We’ll also share with you our personal stories, tales from behind the ales, that we hope you’ll find educational and entertaining.

What if you don’t like beer? Nonsense! With such a vast assortment of beer styles and flavors, there is a beer out there for everyone, you just may not have found it yet. Until you find your perfect beer, stick around Bottle Makes Three for our stories beyond beer. Occasionally we feature articles on craft spirits, distilleries, wineries, food, and more.Generally speaking, if it’s new, fun or delicious, we will want to tell you about it. Sharing is caring!

Finally, in case you wonder why we decided to call our site Bottle Makes Three, maybe this will help.


We created Bottle Makes Three because we are excited and passionate about craft beer, not because we ever expected to get anything in return. We don’t get paid in any way as a part of our blog; quite the opposite actually. However, we occasionally do receive free items for sample or review, so we want you to be aware of our policy regarding freebies.

If we ever get free products or samples and we decide they are worthy of being shared with you, we will include a disclosure in our post to let you know that we received the item for free. In addition, if we write about anything we received for free we will only give you our own, honest opinions, based on our own experiences with the product. We want you to trust and respect our opinions so we promise to be transparent about anything we get for free. Besides being the right thing to do, it’s also the law.

We don’t specialize in reviews, but we do enjoy sharing great finds with our readers when we come across something exciting. If you have beer or merchandise that you want to send us to review, or if you wish to donate something to use as a giveaway, please email  and we’ll let you know if your item seems like something that would be a good fit for our blog.

Now that we got that serious stuff out-of-the-way, let’s get back to the business of drinking beer!
