Before moving to Steamboat Springs, I didn’t know what Alpenglow was. As far as I was concerned, it was just a beer that was brewed locally at the downtown brewery and restaurant Mahogany Ridge. As I quickly learned, Alpenglow is much more than just a beer.

I knew that the sunsets here in the Yampa Valley were breathtaking and that when you caught the sun setting at just the right time you would see rich, vibrant colors illuminating the skies. With the warm, fall blue bird days we have been having recently, the sunsets and the Alpenglow are just astounding. The reds, oranges and purples that light up the sky look like they are from a painter’s canvas. Check it out yourself. Right around 4:30 in the afternoon look up at the ski area; the light on Storm Peak will stop you in your tracks.
