Dunkin' Donuts, Harpoon Brewery launch coffee porter beer

Love beer? Love coffee? We have great news for you.

Two New England staples, Harpoon Brewery and Dunkin', have partnered up to bring you a new taste for fall: the Harpoon Dunkin' Coffee Porter.

>> On Boston25News.com: Just Dunkin': Dunkin' Donuts to change its name

Starting this week, beer and coffee lovers across the East Coast can enjoy the taste of Dunkin's Espresso Blend Coffee combined with Harpoon's notable craft beer.

A balanced and smooth brew offering robust and roasty notes, Dunkin’ Coffee Porter was created by Harpoon as a tribute to all the days that Dunkin’ has helped the brew masters fire up the brew kettle.

At 6 percent ABV, Dunkin’ Coffee Porter is a malty tasting brew that has a smooth mouthfeel with aromas of espresso and dark chocolate.

Launched on Sept. 27 during Dunktoberfest, the aptly named introduction to Harpoon's annual Octoberfest event, beer lovers were able to taste the Harpoon Dunkin' Coffee Porter a week before anyone else.

The new brew will be available throughout the fall, in both 12 oz. bottles and draft at select locations.

“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," said Tony Weisman, Dunkin’ U.S. chief marketing officer. "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.”

“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,” said Dan Kenary, CEO and co-founder of Harpoon Brewery. “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 favorite morning brew with one of ours.”
