The team of owners consists of 2 couples brought together by a mutual love of engineering and beer, which naturally translated into homebrewing. While homebrewing and enjoying the thriving brewery scene in Virginia, somehow they decided that opening their own 3-barrel nano-brewery in Old Town Winchester would be an exciting adventure. They’re currently the only majority woman-owned and -brewed establishment in the state of Virginia (well, at least as far as they’ve been able to determine), which is pretty excellent. They love the Shenandoah Valley and really love beer. They love beer so much that they think it should be made right here in Old Town. Women brewing in Virginia is nothing new – even before Thomas Jefferson made any beer at Monticello, his wife Martha was brewing small batches of beer every two weeks. Ok – so, women in brewing is awesome and all, but that’s not all they’re about.
