The Best of Two Worlds: Engkanto x Gelato Manila Craft Beer Collection

Say hello to a new iconic duo: craft beer and gelato! 

Unlike mac and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, cookies and cream, and other overdone duplets, our unique pair trickles into an intoxicating experience. 

Engkanto x Gelato Manila Craft Beer Collection comes from the artistic collaboration of two local craft brands. It's an exciting and daring take on luscious Italian desserts and aromatic and flavorful craft beers.

Gelato Manila owner and chef Zarah Manikan took on this cool pursuit from her innovative kitchen. She chose Engkanto because of the distinct profiles of our beers. As an accomplished flavor creator, she relished discovering the character of the beer variants to determine the ingredients that would complement the recipes she made from scratch.

A trio of citrusy, creamy, and decadent creations emerged: Engkanto Citrus & Spice, India Pale Ale & Nuts, and Double IPA Chocolate Truffle.


Engkanto Citrus & Spice is a bright makeover of our golden Blonde Ale beer. Oozing with citrusy notes from its original craft recipe, this sorbet-style dessert is complemented by the freshness of lemon. A dash of chili flakes tickles a bit of heat and spiciness in each scoop. 

India Pale Ale & Nuts is a milk-based delight that has toasted nuts, caramel, chocolate-coated potato strings, and the flavors of our India Pale Ale beer that will make your palate run wild. Drift into the richness of this crowd-pleaser, but make sure to come back for more.  

Finally, the Double IPA Chocolate Truffle features smooth layers of dark chocolate and raw cacao powder that are made more decadent with the subtle fruity sensations of our Double IPA beer. It’s the therapy you never thought you need.
