PRESS RELEASE / January 26, 2022 (Boston, MA) – Boston’s iconic foodie collaboration has returned for the third year in a row, offering a sweet treat for beer and cannoli lovers alike! Harpoon Brewery and Mike’s Pastry are at it again with the following limited releases:
- Harpoon Mike’s Pastry Cannoli Stout – Made with real Mike’s Pastry cannoli shells, the added combination of cocoa nibs, lactose, and vanilla recreate the flavor of the famous cannoli dessert for a creamy, delicious 7.3% ABV stout.
- Barrel-Aged Mike’s Pastry Cannoli Stout – First introduced in 2021, this more decadent take on the original Cannoli Stout uses the same recipe but ages the liquid for two months in premium rye whiskey barrels for added layers of vanilla, spice and caramel. An extra indulgence, this brew has a strong finish at 9% ABV.
As February is National Cancer Awareness Month, for every case of beer sold Harpoon will donate a portion of proceeds to Real Men Wear Pink, an American Cancer Society-affiliated organization.
To celebrate the launch, fans are invited to visit the Harpoon Beer Hall on February 1st between 3-9pm. Every guest that buys a 4-pack of the regular or Barrel-Aged Cannoli Stout will receive two accompanying Mike’s cannolis. Every guest that buys a draft pour of either stout from the bar will receive one cannoli from Mike’s. For those with an extra sweet tooth, additional cannolis will be available for purchase (while supplies last).

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 employee owned.
Founded in 1946, Mike’s Pastry is located in Boston’s historic North End on Hanover Street. Michael Mercogliano (the “Mike” behind the famed Mike’s Pastry) created the one-of-a-kind cannoli that keeps loyal Bostonians and tourists coming from around the world to enjoy. Mercogliano presided over the bakery since 1946 and handed the operation off to his stepson, Angelo Papa, who has been running the bakery for years now.
