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), I am passionate about photography, marketing and communications. I am studying to become a “Certified Member of the Institute of Masters of Beer” (DOEMENS e.V.).

I have discovered and fortified my passion for beer during my studies and my nights out. That 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.

Empathetic. Animal lover (hedgehog addicted). Veg cooker. Rock music passionate. Book eater. Callanetics practitioner. Instagram humble beer drinker.

The blog is about Italian craft beers and Italian craft breweries.

This blog is designed for non-Italian people looking for information about Italian craft beers.
