Dunkin’ and Harpoon Brewery’s latest summer drink won’t let you choose between cold iced coffee and refreshing light beer, because this new beverage combines these two refreshments.
Called Harpoon Dunkin’ Summer Coffee Pale Ale, this iced coffee-inspired beer is a fusion of Dunkin’s Original Blend Coffee and bright pale ale. Fawcett Amber Malt, Carapils Malt, and Pale Malt are used in its production as well as hops like Chinook, Denali, Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra, and Azacca.
Each 12-ounce can has five percent ABV and pairs well with coffee-rubbed brisket, chipotle chicken tacos, and Dunkin’ coffee rolls, as stated on its label.
Harpoon Dunkin’ Summer Coffee Pale Ale follows 2018’s Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter as the second craft beer created as a collaboration between the two companies.
“I just depleted the last of my private stash of Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter the other day, so, selfishly, the timing on this launch couldn’t be better,” said Dan Kenary, Harpoon’s co-founder and CEO, in a press release. “We ended last year’s baseball season with the intro of Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter, and we’re excited to begin this season with the release of our Summer Coffee Pale Ale. Most importantly, it’s a delicious beer — hoppy and vibrant with a nice coffee character. We’re thrilled to partner with an icon like Dunkin’ again.”
Harpoon Dunkin’ Summer Coffee Pale Ale launched last week and can be purchased through the summer in both 12-ounce cans and on draft at select retail locations across the Eastern US.
