Ashley Huntington


Owner, Farmer & Brewer

With an organic chemistry degree, diploma in winemaking and a decade working in the wine industry, much of it as director and senior winemaker of the BRL Hardy owned Domaine de la Baume in the Languedoc region of France, Ashley single handedly manages the farm & brews all our farmhouse ale and cider.

Describing himself as brewing on the 'lunatic fringe', he is the height behind the name of the company.

Thanks to our friends at Grow Assembly.





Our Farm


'Charlemont' is the name of our 600 ha farm on the banks of the Derwent River in southern Tasmania.  Just a short 40 minute drive from the heart of Hobart along the road towards the north west.  With just 20 inches average annual rainfall, our farm provides some rural challenges. Fortunately the plentiful Derwent River provides a bountiful water supply.

We are a stone's throw from the historic hop fields at Bushy Park.

We grow grain, hops & raise our herd of Black Angus/Wagyu cattle.

The old shearing shed was converted to house our brewery back in 2008.  The brewhouse itself used to be the St. Ives brewery in Battery Point, Hobart, installed back in the late 1980s. Rehoused on our farm, the old kettle & tanks are lovingly nurtured to life to help us on our journey to find a unique estate brewed beer.
