A donut and coffee a day keep the bad vibes away. Now, add some booze into the mix and everything becomes peppier. Dunkin’ and Harpoon continue to work together to fuse all the things we love together: donuts, coffee and alcohol. Last year, the collaboration gave birth to the popular Coffee Porter. This drink combines the taste of the donut brand’s Original Blend coffee and Harpoon’s famous craft beer.
So, this year, the collaboration is even more special because for the first time ever, Harpoon Brewery introduces three new beers infused with coffee and donuts. Yes, you read it right: donut flavor beers are now a thing! Of course, the fan-favorite Coffee Porter is returning this year in addition to the three new beers. The new offerings include the Pumpkin, Boston Kreme and Jelly Donut.
Launch New Coffee and Donut-Infused Beers
The Harpoon Coffee Porter (6% ABV) features malty notes of chocolate, caramel and toffee to give the familiar smooth flavor of the chain’s Original Blend coffee. The Pumpkin (5.25 ABV) is a spiced latte ale with real pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices mixed with coffee for an espresso-like brew. Brewed with real donuts and cacao nibs, the Boston Kreme (4.3% ABV) boasts dough-like and chocolatey notes similar to a creamy Dry Irish Stout. Lastly, the Jelly Donut (5.7% ABV) is a pale ale infused with real donuts and raspberry puree with notes of jelly and citrus.
“After more than two years and three seasons of collaborating with the Dunkin’ team, our fans have come to expect a delicious fall beer from us, but we wanted to give them something extra special this year,” Dan Kenary, Harpoon CEO and cofounder, said in a press release. “Our brewers have always been master innovators, but brewing beer made with real donuts was a first even for them.”
So, the returning Coffee Porter and the three new beers will be available on draft and in bottled 6-packs. All four flavors are also in a limited release mix pack which includes three cans of each beer flavor.
