We store carbs in our body as glycogen in our muscles and liver. The key here is that the body can store only about one pound of glycogen at a time; anything in excess of that is converted into fat. The first time I went for a run when visiting my parents in Cornelius, Oregon—elevation: feet—after moving to Denver, I thought my watch was broken.
About this book
The source of my newfound superpower—and yours—has nothing to do with a cape or radioactive spider, though. It has everything to do with a hormone called erythropoietin, or EPO. When your body registers a lack of oxygen, EPO triggers the production of more red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the muscles. So when you train—or just live—at elevation, you produce more red blood cells, says Dr. Silverton miner Neil McQuieg establishes the foundations of what will become—in —the Kendall Mountain Run when he runs to the top of the 13,foot peak on a bet.

How does this book help me? That was probably the biggest challenge, just picking which breweries to feature. To pick the best ones, I approached it much like I would as a political reporter — I interviewed dozens of beer experts and industry observers and compiled a list of their favorites, and really put aside my personal preferences. And a handful of new ones came too late. You organized the book geographically — beer hubs like major cities, then divided the state into sections.
The brewer there just makes great beer on a small system, at a great pizza joint that always has live music. I spent a good bit of time in Steamboat Springs, which has a thriving beer scene. Now there are too many for me to mention them all. You understand nuance in politics. How did you develop your affinity and understanding of the beer scene? From there, it was a downward slope, at least for my bank account.

So is it just a matter of tasting a lot of the innovations and options? I will say that learning to homebrew gave me a whole new appreciation for beer — the art of it as well as the creativity and room for innovation. So much of tasting beer is actually aroma. And so much of whether you like a beer is based on the memories you have. Your brain is constantly analyzing it — is it orange or strawberry or maple syrup or cake batter? Like eating as a child and learning what food we like as a toddler, you need to try new flavors multiple times for your brain to begin to understand them.
But the best crossover between my beats is that politicians love good beer, too. More than anything, beer helps the politics go down, which is more true than ever these days. The way you describe the complexity of beer flavors these days makes it sound like wine. Do you have an equal affinity for the grape? I love good beer and good wine. I love seeing how beer is emerging as a more elevated beverage and that allows me to write about it in a larger cultural frame than just an alcoholic beverage. You went all over the state.
