Hello, my name is Monica Di Loxley, and I am a humble craft beer drinker.

This is my humble beer blog, where I try to tell you something about Italian Craft Beer, in my broken English.

I was born in Veneto countryside, in a house where love, wine and food are sacred.

I studied at Maffioli School for tourism and catering, later at the University of Padua where I have been graduated with honours in Science and Culture of Gastronomy and Catering. I’m a graduate Biersommelier at DOEMENS Akademie (Munich), and I am studying to become a “Certified Member of the Institute of Masters of Beer” (DOEMENS e.V.). I have just started a Master in Marketing and Communication at 24 Ore Business School.

I have discovered and fortified my passion for beer during my studies and my nights out. This helped me a lot because, after a period in the wine world, I moved from Montalcino’s hills (Tuscany) to the sunny Riviera Romagnola to start my adventure in the beer business… And here I am! I’m happily working for a beer distributor, beer e-commerce, and an Italian brewery.
