The Good Evening Donut will be available Thursday,
March 17 – Monday, March 21
PRESS RELEASE / March 15, 2022 (Boston, MA) – Kane’s Donuts is pleased to announce a limited-edition donut with Castle Island Brewing Co. in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and the return of Boston’s St. Patrick Day parade. The Good Evening Donut will be available in stores beginning Thursday, March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day) through Monday. March 21st at all Kane’s Donuts locations: 120 Lincoln Avenue in Saugus, 1575 Broadway (Essex Landing) in Saugus, and 90 Oliver Street in Boston’s Financial District.
Tapping into Castle Island’s Good Evening Nitro Session Stout, Kane’s has crafted yet another limited-edition delight with one of the area’s best breweries. A collaboration with the Norwood and South Boston brewery, the Good Evening Donut is a light and airy yeast style donut topped with Kane’s signature honey glaze infused with Good Evening Nitro Session Stout and festively decorated with St Patrick’s Day sprinkles.
“Being a Massachusetts-based business, we take pride in staying true to our roots and supporting other local and like-minded companies through collaboration and always using local ingredients, when possible,” said Maria Delios, co-owner of Kane’s Donuts. “We know our loyal customers are going to love our latest collaboration with Castle Island Brewing Co., just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.”
Castle Island’s take on a Guinness, Good Evening is a nitro session stout and available exclusively in their taprooms. With an ABV of 4.9% and flavors of milk chocolate, roasted chestnut, and breakfast cereal, it pairs perfectly with the sweet flavors of a donut.
“It’s been an incredible experience collaborating with Kane’s Donuts, and the timing couldn’t have been better. Having just opened our new taproom in South Boston back in the fall of 2021, we knew our first St. Patrick’s Day in the neighborhood would be one worth celebrating — especially with the return of the parade after a two-year absence,” said Derek Hannan, Communications Manager for Castle Island Brewing Co. “Creating a donut together for St. Patrick’s Day that highlights what we both do best is such an awesome addition to an already incredible holiday weekend.”
Castle Island’s South Boston taproom will be celebrating the return of Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade all weekend long with beer and food specials, live music, limited St. Patrick’s Day merch, and more. More information can be found on Instagram at @castleislandbeer.
Kane’s Donuts is New England’s legacy donut shop, ranked top-10 in the United States for serving handcrafted donuts and treats that are made fresh daily, and with local ingredients. Known for a superior daily selection of artisanal flavors and rotating monthly favorites, its continuous 64 years of service began with Kanes’ now-iconic “Legacy” store, which opened in 1955 in Saugus, Mass., and remains a local favorite for serving handmade products, seven days a week. For its 60th anniversary in March 2015, Kane’s opened a second location (“Kane’s Downtown”) in the heart of Boston’s financial district at International Place; and in March 2019, Kane’s reimagined the donut-buying experience with “Kane’s Flagship,” its largest location (with a drive-through and donut-prep observation area) at Essex Landing in Saugus. In 2018, Kane’s was named “Best Donut” by both Boston Magazine and the Improper Bostonian, and in 2019 won “Best of the North Shore” by North Shore magazine. It has appeared in Travel + Leisure, Saveur and Yankee magazines, among others; it’s consistently recognized by the Boston Globe, Boston Herald and local media; and has earned local and national attention for what many consider the best gluten-free cake donuts available at a traditional donut shop.
