Just north of Prescott’s historic downtown Courthouse Plaza sits Arizona’s newest brewery.

Granite Mountain Brewing Company opened its doors about a month ago.

The room smells of fresh hops and barley.

Just behind the large, hand-carved wooden bar is the brewery’s three-barrel brewing equipment.

If starting a new business during a recession seems a bit risky, it didn’t stop this brewery’s owners.

Amanda Richardson and Michael Stanger are two of the brewery’s co-founders:

It’s a typical sunny Flagstaff day, and Diego Estrada takes a break from training to visit a favorite taqueria.

While many Olympians spend their days focusing every second on their sport, Estrada takes a slightly different approach.

“I’ve done my best to avoid it," he said. "I actually started working on my room, I painted it, I built a bed from scratch.  I’ve been trying to stay distracted because I know if I focus too much I’m going to burn out or lose interest.  Our goal has been to stay away from it and treat it like any other race."

The Olympics are just about to get underway, but Lopez Lomong is not in London yet.

He’s returned to Flagstaff in order to finish his training.

Lopez says Flagstaff is the place that made him a world-class athlete, and he’s bringing some of his US teammates with him.

“It’s like I’m still a student here.  I still run the same trails, they’re still the same distances.  That’s why I’m bringing some of my friends, my teammates, the love of what Flagstaff has to offer to the world.”
