DSCF3888Nantes is not a big beer-producing region, as it’s mainly known for its lovely crisp and earthy Muscadet white wine, which pairs well with the mussels and seafood they are so fond of here.

Therefore I was pleasantly surprised to discover a small micro brewery in Nantes called Charlotte’s beer (Les biéres de Charlotte).

Charlotte makes (last time I checked) 4 beers, which you can buy either on Saturday at the market “place de la Petite Hollande” or at the production site on some days (check Charlotte’s website for more information), and in some local shops.

My favorite of her beers is the “la Carlotta,” which is a strong and full of flavor beer, which you can also drink in some bars including one of our locals, “Fées maisons”.
