Solstice Farm Brewery
Anna Shore and her husband, Ed, had been searching for the perfect piece of land for decades. While at Virginia Tech the two not only fell in love with each other, they also fell for the region. That search finally yielded results several years ago. They found a farm in Catawba, Virginia and have built Solstice Farm Brewery.
Some of their own home-grown hops make it into their unique beers. They also incorporate environmentally sound techniques into their operation. Learn more about Alzheimer’s Disease and this unique craft brewery when you meet both of these women in this edition of Sisterhood of the Second Act.
