Dunkin’ and Harpoon Brewery are releasing donut-infused beers this fall

These new beverages are part of Dunkin’ and Harpoon Brewery’s fall 2020 beer lineup

Dunkin’ and Harpoon Brewery are taking their annual seasonal collaboration to the next level with the launch of two new donut-infused beers.

The first of these two alcoholic beverages is the Harpoon Dunkin’ Boston Kreme Stout (ABV: 4.3%), an easy-drinking, creamy dry Irish stout that is brewed with real Dunkin’ donuts and cacao nibs.

The second one, meanwhile, is called the Harpoon Dunkin’ Jelly Donut India Pale Ale (ABV: 5.7%). Made with real Dunkin’ donuts and raspberry purée, this slightly hazy IPA has bright notes of jelly and citrus from the addition of fruit-forward Hüll Melon and Citra hops.

“You get some creative brewers together, maybe over a couple of beers, and sure enough the conversation turns to ‘How could we make some beer with donuts?’” Dan Kenary, Harpoon’s chief executive officer and co-founder, told CNN Business of how the idea for donut-infused beers came about.

Both donut-infused beers are part of Dunkin’ and Harpoon Brewery’s fall 2020 lineup, which also includes the new Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin and the returning fan-favorite Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter.

Inspired by everyone’s favorite fall pumpkin latte, the Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin (ABV: 5.2%) is a spiced latte ale that is brewed with real pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and a splash of coffee. “It tastes like fall, and it gives a little bit of sophistication to the pumpkin with the coffee flavors,” Kenary said of the light-in-color and easy-to-drink beer with a touch of espresso-like roast.

Lastly, the Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter (ABV: 6.0%), which was launched back in 2018, is a classic American Porter that combines malty notes of chocolate, caramel, and toffee with the comforting and familiar flavor of Dunkin’ Original Blend coffee. The drink is Harpoon Brewery’s first-ever tribute to the Dunkin’ coffee, which has helped keep the beverage company running during its early years.

Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin will be available on draft and in bottled 6-packs, as well as in the new Harpoon Dunkin’ Dozen mix pack, which contains 3 cans of each of the four seasonal beer flavors. These limited-time offerings will be available at all locations where Harpoon products are being sold starting in September.
