Baladin brewery opens its new Open Garden with a party on Summer Solstice

We previously mentioned the passion for craft beers in the Alps of the Sea, small producers making big artisan beers. Today, we are focusing on Baladin farm brewery - one of the most renowned artisan breweries in Italy - which is about to inaugurate its Open Garden.

The Baladin Open Garden inauguration is on June 21st, 2017, Summer Solstice.
The festival will be held in the large park that houses the Baladin farmer brewery; it will be a great moment for sharing, an opportunity to know and feel the close bond between Earth, its fruits and great craft Beer!
Picnic areas will be available, as well as the "racContadino" market, thematic workshops and much more ...
Everything, of course, in Baladin style, starting with a big party!
Here the program:
- 7pm Doors open! Excellent Baladin artisan beers will wait for you along with grills and the chefs cooking delicacies including vegetarian ones!
- 8pm Did you know that June 21st is also World Yoga Day? We will take advantage of this great occasion to propose a guided meditation open to everyone! (Just bring a mat).
- from 8 to 10pm night guided tours of the brewery.
- 10pm live concert band "extraliscio" (ballroom punk style).
And...homemade bread made by Gabriele Bonci baked in the historic oven, an exhibition of Baladin’s design objects, a wall of artist's coasters, a greenhouse with mushrooms grown from coffee grounds ... and much more.
