NÖEL CAFE' - Baladin Christmas Beer 2013



Nöel Cafè is Baladin’s beer for Christmas 2013

Nöel Cafè is the beer which Teo dedicates to Christmas 2013. Following our tradition, it is a top fermented, non pasteurized beer, which is refermented in the bottle. It is dark in color, has a full body and is very aromatic. It is brewed at the end of summer to give it the time to ferment and mature slowly in the bottle for a long period of time, so that it is ready to express all its complex aromatic scents once opened. The persistent head enhances the complex aromas of dried fruit, biscuit, chocolate and, this year, coffee! We have chosen no ordinary coffee: its name is “Terre Alte” and is a very sweet blend with spicy and fruity flavors. It is the result of the combination between two fine indigenous mountain coffee plants - both Slow Food Presidia - from Guatemala (Huehuetenango) and Honduras (Montagna Campara). The coffee is wood roasted at the Turin detention facility, thus completing an approach based on solidarity and sustainability. Nöel Cafè is perfect with Christmas cakes and sweets, chocolate but also savory food, such as mature and blue cheese. Teo dreams of drinking it with mamma Maria’s “coniglio al civet” (rabbit stew).

My name is Christopher Ottosen a Chef  & documentary from Oslo Norway.


My motto is; before you create you need to learn and observe: "creation through observation".


I had the pleasure to follow the eccentric & visionary beer brewer Teo Musso & Baladin throughout the fair Salone del Gusto & Terra Madre 2012.


This is the first chapter of the documentary. Enjoy it !



    “Cola Baladin” is a soft drink which contains no artificial coloring or preservative and is produced with the kola nuts bought from the Kola Slow Food Presidium in Sierra Leone. The money paid for the kola nuts, plus part of the revenues from the sales of the drink, are a small economic resource to further support the project itself. The recipe is 100% natural and uses amazing ingredients: oranges from Gargano, lemons from the Amalfi Coast and myrtle-leaf oranges from Savona give it the citrus flavor.


    Baladin is first and foremost good craft beer, but it is also a world where the taste for good things, ideas and dreams to share intertwine. Many Baladin lovers want to get in contact with us, and more and more often come and visit the brewery, the pub in Piozzo and the aging cellar. Unfortunately, though, not everyone has the time to travel to Piedmont: that’s why we have decided to open the doors of the “world of Baladin” to everyone, with a new website and more interaction on social networks.


    The last addition to the KIKKE BALADIN “family”, these chocolates are the result of the cooperation with Sabadì, where Simone Sabaini - the man behind the company based in Modica - and Teo have come up with the idea of creating six tasty products which perfectly combine with our six beers from the Classic range.


    We are happy to announce that Baladin won the title “BREWERY OF THE YEAR 2013”.


    This amazing result was decreed by UNIONBIRRAI that every year organize a national contest called “Birra dell’Anno” “Beer of the Year” where more than 200 microbrewery propose the best selection of their product that are judged by an national and international jury.


    The brewery that obtain the maximum score with its beers won the main title.


    This year Baladin beers was ranked in the follow categories:
