Harpoon Brewery and Dunkin’ Donuts have teamed up for the fourth year in a row to give fans a unique and refreshing way to enjoy fall.
In addition to the return of the favorite Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin Spiced Latte Ale, three new beers co-created by Harpoon Brewery and Dunkin’ Donuts are hitting stores across the country this September. Made with coffee, donuts, and matcha tea from Dunkin’ Donuts, the three new alcoholic beverages are as follows:
Harpoon Dunkin’ Blueberry Matcha IPA
Inspired by Dunkin’ Donuts’ Blueberry Matcha Latte, this hazy India pale ale has an ABV of 6.6%. Brewed with blueberries, matcha, and a blend of traditional and modern hops, this drink is both tea-like and tropical with bright, juicy notes of mixed berry.
Harpoon Dunkin’ Maple Crème Blonde Ale
This easy-drinking blonde ale is brewed with actual donuts and maple syrup. With an ABV of 5.5%, this beer features the taste of Dunkin’ Donuts Maple Crème donuts with a subtle, malty, not-too-sweet base.
Harpoon Dunkin’ Midnight American Porter
A riff on Dunkin’ Donuts’ classic Coffee Porter, this beer is brewed with Dunkin’ Donuts’ new Midnight Roast coffee for some extra roasty aromatics, dark chocolate notes, and an espresso-like finish. The alcoholic drink has an ABV of 6%.
“We have elevated our collaboration with Harpoon this fall with three new beers, all made with Dunkin’s iconic coffee, donuts and matcha tea,” said Brian Gilbert, Vice President of Retail Business Development at Dunkin’ Donuts, in a news release. “Beer, matcha, coffee and donuts, we can’t think of a better combination.”
To mark the release of the three new beers, the two companies are opening the first-ever Dunkin’ Walk-Thru at Harpoon Brewery in Boston. Open for one day only, on September 2nd, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. ET, the local pop-up experience will give fans a first taste of the new beers by ordering a pack to go.
As an added treat, anyone who orders the new beers at the walk-thru will also receive a free Dunkin’ Harpoon IPA Donut. Made just for the event, the Dunkin’ Harpoon IPA Donut is filled with a Harpoon IPA jelly and topped with a candied malt crumble. It is the first donut from Dunkin’ Donuts to be made with beer as an ingredient. Attendees can also enjoy a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee while waiting for their orders.
“Our collaborations with Dunkin’ are highly anticipated by our fans each fall, so this year we wanted to help them crack a cold one open just a little earlier. Our Dunkin’ Walk-Thru experience takes everything we love about ordering Dunkin’ at a traditional Drive-Thru with the addition of a first taste of our new beers,” said Dan Kenary, Harpoon CEO and co-founder.
In the event you miss the walk-thru experience, Buffalo Wild Wings in the Boston area will also exclusively serve the three new Harpoon Brewery x Dunkin’ Donut beers, as well as the returning Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin Spiced Latte Ale, on draft starting in October.
The Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin Spiced Latte Ale will also be available in bottled 6-packs as well as in the new Harpoon Dunkin’ Dozen mix pack, which features three cans of each seasonal beer flavor. These limited releases will be available everywhere Harpoon is sold beginning in September.
