After graduating as an agricultural engineer, Alain Bonnefoy worked on the Charmois estate as a crop grower. There, he opened a micro-brewery using some of the cereal crops from his own farm. Charmoy beer is made with water from a local spring, grain, and yeast from the Orval brewery in Belgium. It is a long-lasting top fermentation beer that is neither filtered nor pasteurised. It is slowly refermented in bottles, in the purest of beermaking traditions. Alain produces mainly two beers - Charmoy blonde, a mild, subtly-flavoured drink, and Charmoy ambrée with a bitterness that is offset by a pleasant fruitiness. Other beers are also produced during the brewing season – March and Christmas beers. Alain welcomes visitors to his micro-brewery and shares his passion for beer on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon, or at other times with advance booking for groups.
