Bala DJ


Baladin has been at Salone del Gusto – organized by Slow Food – since its first edition. Many of our live beers were introduced to the public during the event and it is here that the idea of the Slow Food Presidium cola was conceived.
This year’s edition will see the debut of the "2014 hops harvest” NAZIONALE, which will be served on tap along with Cola Baladin. We have also worked to organize a few cultural events during the Salone to talk about Live Beer and present some exceptional products from all over the world. Our stand will turn into a small classroom where representatives of many Presidia will tell the results of their work.
Each time we will combine a Baladin beer, which will also be described. At the end, we will offer a small tasting.
Unfortunately, not many places are available: 20 seated and about 10 standing. If you are interested, please come by our stand to book a place. In addition to the Presidia, we have also invited some friends who would like to tell their stories. Warning: some of the beers may be changed to create a better combination. You can find Baladin in other areas of the Salone: we will be in the Terra Madre area at the Sierra Leone stand (6H 026), where the guys from Slow Food will sell Cola Baladin. All revenues will be given to the African community which, now more than ever, needs our support and help.
Baladin will also be in the international hall, at the Birreria Brothers stand (Oval – stand 6J008).

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:
