There have been times in everyone's life when they're craving two things at once. It's this simple desire that has led to some of the world's best inventions. And now you can add another one to the list because Dunkin' has teamed up with Harpoon Brewery to bring the first-ever coffee-flavored beer to shelves.
The new beverage is called Harpoon Dunkin' Coffee Porter and will balance the tastes of beer and coffee together in a great 12 oz. blend. It also has six percent ABV. The drink has been available to consumers since October 1 and will only remain in stores throughout the fall. So if this sounds intriguing then you only have a limited window to try this unique beer.
The company released a statement on October 1 addressing the new brew. "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," Tony Weisman, Dunkin' U.S. Chief Marketing Officer, said. "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 that the brewery has been working with Dunkin' since their first days. "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," he said.
If this sounds like something that's up your alley then you can visit Harpoon Brewery's beer finder website to see if their booze is located in an area near you. It's only available in certain locations and won't around forever, though.
