Some call it “happy hour.” Others call it “après.” The fact remains that no matter what you call it, that sweet spot between the end of a satisfying day and the start of the evening is the perfect time for a bit of celebration. In the midvalley area, Vail Brewing Company in EagleVail is the place to be.

“Happy hour anywhere is crazy because people are getting out of work and you know, they want to meet up afterwards,” explained Garret Scahill, co-owner and head brewer at VBC. “But I think (VBC) is great because of the atmosphere that we provide.”

Two key elements of that atmosphere? Sunshine and a patio. The patio at VBC in EagleVail is facing west, almost guaranteeing that as the sun sets down the Valley, the patio and interior of VBC will be washed with light.

“Sometimes it gets to bright that the bartenders can’t even see who they’re serving,” Scahill said.
