Are you ready for "birramisu"?

I confess a near-obsession with keeping track of the beer explosion in tourist Italy -- make that 'craft' beer explosion -- and part of me does want to cheer that Naples is moving up high enough on the tourist radar it sees a ready market for offering "birramisu" which -- according to today's New York Times -- is "a reimagining of the classic espresso-fueled dessert."

Don't know if it will become the international export that the Venice-associated tiramisu turned out to be, but certainly sounds like a tourist crowd pleaser: beer, cheese, sugar all in one cheap shot. The Times urges you to head straight for it just about as soon as you hit Naples.
