STEEP Brewing and Coffee Co. opened its doors on December 19th, 2020, fulfilling a lifelong dream of owners Justin and Elissa. Over the past few years, STEEP Brewing & Coffee Company has grown from a tiny little brewery and taproom to a must-visit Summit County brewery for Keystone skiers, snowboarders, and summer visitors alike. Our new taproom and coffee house opened in the Keystone River Run Village, steps away from the Gondola, in winter 2021.
Due to the demand for our beer and coffee, we expanded our brewing and coffee roasting facility to approximately 2,000 SF in the summer of 2022.

miguel y paola apple/pomegranate/honey seltzer
Miguel was the youngest son of a poor beekeeper who, upon the death of his father, began working for the wealthy orchard at the top of the hill in his small Mexican village. In order to provide for his widowed mother and invalid sister, Miguel tended the fruit trees that spanned the majority of the outskirts of town and brought wealth and prosperity to the greedy orchard owner, but left the rest of the town to fight for scraps. One blistering, unseasonably warm September afternoon, Miguel was picking the apples and pomegranates of the orchard when a beautiful young woman strolled through. She saw Miguel from a distance, glistening with sweat from the hot September sun and felt a fire inside of her she’d never experienced. She yelled from across the orchard, waving her embroidered handkerchief with the family crest as a sign of attraction. Miguel was so flabbergasted by her beauty that he dropped an apple and a pomegranate into the jar of honey that was his sustenance for the day. He ran to her, got down on one knee and grasped her hand, asking for her name and she meekly revealed it to be Paola. As he rose to embrace her and kiss her voluptuous lips for the first time, the sky opened and the tears of the angels gently washed away their inhibitions, cooling their skin and filling the honey jar with the water necessary to create the delicious apple, pomegranate and honey concoction you are drinking now.
