Kane’s Donuts is excited to announce a collaboration with Wormtown Brewery and its Irish Red on a limited-edition St. Patrick’s Day Donut. The Wormtown Irish Red Donut will be available from Thursday, March 16 through Sunday, March 19, 2023 at all three 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 Wormtown’s Irish Red, an Irish-style Red Ale, Kane’s has crafted yet another limited-edition delight with one of Massachusetts’ premier breweries. The Wormtown Irish Red Donut is a light and airy yeast-style donut topped with Kane’s signature honey glaze infused with Irish Red and decorated festively with green sprinkles. Wormtown’s Irish Red is a light-bodied red ale that has a toasty malt aroma, a caramel toffee flavor, and a light dry finish, making it a smooth and easy-drinking Irish-style Red Ale for any occasion. With an ABV of 5.5% and flavors of caramel, light roast, and slight spice, it pairs perfectly with the sweet flavors of a donut.
“We love working with local and regional breweries on limited-edition collaborations, and we’ve been trying to find a way to work with Wormtown for quite some time,” said Maria Delios, co-owner of Kane’s Donuts. “Wormtown is one of those brands that our guests often suggest we collaborate on, and the timing could not be any better with their release of Irish Red, and Wormtown celebrating its ‘Baker’s Dozen’ themed thirteenth birthday celebration this St. Patrick’s Day.”
In addition to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, Wormtown Brewery is hosting its 13th birthday bash on Friday, March 17, 2023 at their Worcester taproom at 72 Shrewsbury Street from 4 – 10 p.m. featuring live music, DJ, a special birthday brew, cocktails, food and desserts, and a vintage beer tasting.
“Wormtown Brewery shares the same love of working with and supporting local businesses such as Kane’s Donuts, as well as creating unique beers around highly-anticipated holidays and events, whether it’s St. Patrick’s Day or the Blizzard of 1978,” said Kim Golinski, president and general manager at Wormtown Brewery. “Our baker’s dozen birthday party will be even more special as originally planned with this donut collaboration with Kane’s. The timing of this could not be better.”
About Kane’s Donuts
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 Kane’s 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.
