Who Are We

We're glad you're here

Welcome!

A Family Owned Farm

As young twenty-somethings, we always knew we wanted to do something with the family farm. Although our education and eventual careers took us in other directions, our initial inclination was never very far away. In 2010, we bought half of our family's farm and decided to start growing hops. It was from here that our dream to one day own an estate brewery started to evolve.

Since then, we've gleaned some knowledge, accomplished some goals, and constructed a sound idea of what we wanted our business to look like. We've built a kick-ass brewery in one of two incredible turn-of-the-century barns. In the other, we've created a beautiful space, with an adjacent outdoor patio, for guests to lounge, imbibe, and nibble all day long.

Our Manifesto for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The farm surrounding Charlotteville Brewing Company is organic in its activities and practices.  The forests surrounding the farm is natural and defies simple definition, as it’s a complex ecosystem of organisms synergistically thriving at different times during the year.  Nothing coming to our land is poisonous, toxic, or threatening to the environment or the people using it. 

Putting this philosophy into practice, Melanie, Tim, nor any of the Charlotteville Team will differentiate people based on artificial lines.  We will not make decisions using personality, skin tone, religious or spiritual tendencies, differing cognitive or physical abilities, sexual or gender orientations, or ethnic heritages as inputs.  We are humans, working with humans, serving humans.  Instead, we base decisions of business on minimizing negative environmental impact, and maximizing the personal growth of our customers, our employees, and ourselves.

Our goal is to always tread lightly.  Respect everyone who walks in the door, even when they’re sometimes disrespectful back, and celebrate the diversity that surrounds us everyday.
