The Baladin farm brewery was originally created in 1996 as a brewpub (production and bar) in Piozzo - a small village in the Langhe area in the province of Cuneo - by its founder and master brewer Teo Musso. Throughout its evolution, it has moved several times following the changes in its production needs: from a few square meters stolen from the

It all started with a bunch of young friends called by Teo in 1986 to give him a hand at the pub. Now, hundreds of people build the
