In 2011 former wine-maker Thomas Carteron created Brasserie Carteron in order to show another facet of France's Provence region.
As beer's main constituent is water, it's essential to have a top-quality source, which is why Brasserie Carteron takes its water direct from the La Vierge spring famous for its remarkable mineral content.
Kissed by Saint-Tropez sunshine Carteron's beers are light and elegant. The brewer was inspired to bring a touch of Rosé de Provence wine into his beer with Trop Rosée, which uses grape tanins to stabilise the flavours, giving this classic beer its rosé colouring.
Today, Carteron's range of beers has developed to include a blonde, a white beer and an amber in order to meet increasing demand.
