Cannoleria has partnered with Moon Dog Craft Brewery to launch a cannoli-flavoured beer, which will be available to buy from this Friday, 2nd September.

An exciting addition to their successful craft beer range, Moon Dog Craft Brewery has paid homage to Cannoleria’s Sicilian-style ricotta cannoli by creating the ‘Almighty Cannolo’.

Based off Cannoleria’s sacred cannoli recipe and brewed with 1,500kg of whey from That’s Amore! ricotta, Moon Dog Craft Brewery’s new ‘Almighty Cannolo’ beer has a biscuit-y malt-y base, a creamy ricotta-like mouthfeel and a tart moreish finish.

300 cases of the cannoli-inspired Moon Dog brew will be distributed Australia-wide, with each 440ml can containing 2.6 standard drinks and an alcohol volume of 7.5%.

“There’s a real love for Cannoleria and That’s Amore Cheese amongst the Moon Dog crew,” said Kevin te Wierik, Moon Dog Craft Brewery Director of Brewery Operations. “We weren’t going to miss this opportunity to collaborate.Using the whey from their lovely ricotta, we were able to brew a faithful homage to their world class cannoli that’s unlike any other beer we’ve released.”

Cannoleria’s co-owner Dario Di Clerico is also keen for people to get their hands on the Almighty Cannolo.

“When the opportunity arose to collaborate with Moon Dog Craft Brewery, the team were really excited. Blending two of our favourite things – cannoli and beer – Moon Dog Craft Brewery has created a fantastic product and we are really excited for people to taste it.”

The Moon Dog Craft Brewery X Cannoleria ‘Almighty Cannolo’ beer will be available from Friday 2nd September in all good bottle shops.
