    Brewed with actual Mike’s cannoli shells, Harpoon Mike’s Pastry Cannoli Stout combines the creations of two classic Boston institutions

    Boston, MA – February 21, 2020Harpoon Brewery is partnering with Mike’s Pastry, the world famous pastry shop, to brew up a limited release beer that pairs this delicious combo in a whole new way: Harpoon Mike’s Pastry Cannoli Stout. https://www.harpoonbrewery.com/beer-finder/.

    Cannoli-fanatics and beer-lovers can attend the Harpoon Mike’s Pastry Cannoli Stout launch party at the Harpoon Boston Beer Hall on Thursday, February 27 from 7:30-9:30pm. Attendees will be able to get a first taste of the new beer and top their own cannolis with a DIY cannoli bar from Mike’s Pastry.

    For every case of the beer sold, a portion of proceeds will be donated to a charity of Mike’s Pastry’s choosing: Christmas in the City, a Boston-based local non-profit that provides financial support to families experiencing homelessness and poverty.

    About the Harpoon Brewery:
    The Harpoon Brewery was founded in 1986 by beer lovers who wanted more and better beer options. When the Brewery was founded, Harpoon was issued Brewing Permit #001 by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, since it was the first to brew commercially in Boston after a dormant period of about 25 years. Harpoon’s line of craft beer features its award-winning IPA and seasonal beers, along with special limited releases. In 2014, Harpoon became an employee-owned company.

    I was going to make the same crack about Modern Pastry.

    I'm hardly a cannoli connoisseur though. Is Bova's actually the true king?

    God no. Bovas is where Italian pastry dreams go to die. 24-hour bakery that's kept alive by the forgiving palates of drunken financial bros returning home late night after an evening of crushing $1 beers at Coogans.

    I'm not bitter you are...
