Dunkin’ Donuts and New-England-based Harpoon Brewery have collaborated for the first time to create a coffee porter beverage for the US market.
Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter was created by Harpoon as a tribute to “all the days that Dunkin’ has helped the brewmasters fire up the brew kettle.”
The drink is a 6% ABV malty tasting brew that has a smooth mouthfeel with aromas of espresso and dark chocolate.
Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter will be available in 12oz bottles and on draft from selected retail locations in the eastern US throughout autumn.
Tony Weisman, Dunkin’ Donuts US chief marketing officer said: “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.”
Dan Kenary, CEO and co-founder of Harpoon Brewery added: “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.
“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 favourite morning brew with one of ours.”
