COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumpkin beer

Una birra che Teo ha voluto dedicare al proprio paese, dove “nasce” la BIRRA BALADIN: PIOZZO. Infatti, ormai da numerosissimi anni, a Piozzo si svolge una colorita festa chiamata “FIERA DELLA ZUCCA” dove questo ortaggio è coniugato in innumerevoli ed inimmaginabili modi. Ecco allora l’ispirazione per una personale interpretazione di quella che gli anglosassoni chiamano “pumpkin-ale” e che nella versione Baladin si è trasformata in una vera e propria “torta alla zucca” liquida dove ogni sorso ricorda le golose armonie di dolci alla zucca delle nonne
