Harpoon Brewery (Boston Massachusetts) and Dunkin’ Donuts (Canton, Massachusetts) have announced that Dunkin’ Coffee Porter, their Limited Release collaboration beer, is officially hitting shelves now and will be available throughout the fall.
Developed to serve as “a bold new way . . . to toast the start of fall”, Dunkin Coffee Porter brings “two of America’s iconic beverage brands . . . together for the first time” by combining “the taste of Dunkin’s Espresso Blend Coffee with Harpoon’s famous craft beer.” This marriage of “New England staples” results in a “robust and roasty” Dunkin Coffee Porter (6% ABV) “that has a smooth mouthfeel with aromas of espresso and dark chocolate.”
“Dunkin’ has been there for us since the early days when getting the brewery up and running required a lot of beer, and even more coffee,” said Dan Kenary, CEO and Co-Founder of Harpoon Brewery. “We couldn’t think of a better way to pay tribute to the company that’s helped fuel our success than to create something special for our fans by combining the taste of their favorite morning brew with one of ours.”
According to Tony Weisman, Dunkin’ U.S. Chief Marketing Officer, “Our brands have such passionate, loyal fans, who start their busy day with a cup of Dunkin’ coffee and end it by enjoying one of Harpoon’s famous craft beers. We’re thrilled to now finally bring the two together, partnering with one of the most respected craft breweries in the country to offer coffee lovers and beer enthusiasts alike a classic new taste to celebrate the season.”
Dunkin’ Coffee Porter is officially rolling out this week with plans to stick around through the months of fall. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Massachusetts, Vermont and throughout the rest of Harpoon Brewery’s distribution footprint. Prost!
