Cannoli Beer?! Believe it or not, we have produced over 1 million ounces of this popular 'dessert beer' since its inception in 2013. This signature brew is made with select European grains, cream, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. In our taproom, each Cannoli beer is served in a glass with its rim dipped in powdered sugar and with shaved chocolate sprinkled on top.
Cans are available throughout CT, MA, the panhandle of FL and NJ, but the brewery is the best location to get this delectable dessert beer. Unique varieties like Chocolate Peanut Butter Cannoli and S'mores Cannoli have risen in popularity and we continue to experiment and have fun with this beer!
Shebeen was the 13th brewery in the state of Connecticut when it opened in 2013. Operations began on a small, 1 barrel system with tastings and growler fills available. The same 1 barrel system that we opened our doors with has continued to foster the experimental tap room favorites through today. Having that original 1 barrel system, all of these years later, is what has allowed us to experiment with unique ingredients and continue to push the envelope in our craft.
In 2020, Shebeen was taken over by new owners. A pizza oven and game room were added to the new, expanded tap room and outdoor seating was updated to include fire-pits.
Lou, our Head Brewer is still working his magic here. Lou's beginning at Shebeen started with his love for home brewing. He will tell you his story about how he left his resume under the front door of several breweries in 2015, looking to get his foot in the door. He began his career at Shebeen working in sales but quickly got his chance to begin mastering his passion in the brew house. In his several years as Head Brewer, Lou has developed hundreds of recipes and has been able to brew alongside some of the industry's finest through our contract brewing program.
