My name is Cristian and in 2012, I embarked on a journey of theoretical and practical knowledge in the art of brewing. These studies allowed me to establish a small-scale brewery ideal for experimenting and defining the character of my beers. After a decade-long journey, in 2022, in Silvano Pietra, a small village in the Oltrepò Pavese region, I realized the dream of becoming a professional brewer by opening chiarodiluna. The name aims to evoke the world of clandestine spirits, an environment where the air is always filled with the spirit of continuous exploration of new ingredients and innovative combinations for the pleasure of craft beer enthusiasts.


In addition to the Italian heart, my beers have an international “musical” influence thanks to the use of hop varieties from countries like the United States, Germany, and England. This diversity in tones between each beer is underscored by the choice of names that emotionally represent different moments of the day and seasons.
High fermentation beer with a reddish-brown color, featuring a fine-grained ivory foam with good persistence. The addition of chestnut honey provides distinct floral and balsamic notes.
High fermentation beer with a light golden color, displaying a generous, highly persistent white foam. The American hops used give pronounced fruity notes reminiscent of tropical fruits.
High fermentation beer with a light golden color and typical veils of the style, presenting a very fine-grained white foam. Dryness and a delicate citrusy note from bergamot peels make it very drinkable and refreshing.
High fermentation beer with a light amber color, featuring a small but persistent foam. The use of English hops imparts spicy and floral notes.

These beers highlight the unique characteristics of each, creating a harmonious and enjoyable gastronomic experience.


You can find me in Oltrepò Pavese, in Silvano Pietra, a small town that embodies the tranquility and beauty of the Lombard plain, with a strong connection to agricultural and rural traditions. It’s an ideal place for those seeking a serene environment immersed in the nature and rural culture of Oltrepò Pavese. The presence of the Po River invites excursions to naturalistic oases to discover the local flora and fauna. We are known for our lively village festivals where you can taste local gastronomic products and enjoy traditional wines such as Barbera and Croatina, accompanied by beautiful platters of Salame di Varzi.


You can pair your recipes with our beers, and for this, I leave you some suggestions.
Roasted meats: Roast lamb or oven-baked pork, with their succulence and bold flavor, pair well with the balsamic and floral notes of the beer. Aged cheeses: Cheeses like Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Toscano, with their complex flavors, splendidly complement the notes of chestnut honey in the beer.
Exotic fruit salads: A salad with mango, pineapple, and avocado, which enhances the tropical notes of the hops.
Fish dishes: Tuna or salmon tartare, with their lightness and freshness, complement well the dryness and citrusy notes of the beer.
Meat-based dishes: Roast beef or spiced lamb, which complement the spicy notes of the beer. These pairings enhance the unique characteristics of each beer, creating a harmonious and enjoyable gastronomic experience. Enjoy your meal!


From our farming traditions, born of hard work in the fields demanding great physical energy, comes a typical dish known as “Brasato al Barbera”. This recipe consists of a piece of good beef, along with onions, carrots, celery ribs, and of course, a bottle of Barbera, the ruby wine that carries the character and soul of the local vineyards. The preparation of the brasato begins the evening before, when the meat is placed in a large bowl surrounded by roughly chopped vegetables and aromatic spices, generously poured over with Barbera wine. The next morning, the meat, drained from the marinade and carefully dried, is lightly floured and ready to be seared to achieve a golden crust. When serving, remember to slice it into very thin pieces to fully savor its flavor.
