Let those thoughts of summer sun, fun, pool parties, barbeques and beach days begin, because Dunkin’ and Harpoon Brewery have collaborated to create the ultimate summer sipper. Following their first partnership last fall, the two beverage brands are back together, now introducing a new, limited edition coffee-inspired beer—Harpoon Dunkin’ Summer Coffee Pale Ale—just in time for warmer weather.

A cool new way to kick back at the end of any sunny day or seasonal celebration, Harpoon Dunkin’ Summer Coffee Pale Ale will be available beginning today through summer in both 12 oz. cans and draft at select retail locations across the Eastern U.S. At 5.9 percent ABV, this hoppy tribute to Dunkin’s signature Iced Coffee combines the flavors of Dunkin’s Original Blend with a bright, summery pale ale. The new brew pairs perfectly with delicious summer favorites like coffee rubbed brisket, chipotle chicken tacos, Dunkin’ coffee rolls, and outdoor brunch.

Harpoon Dunkin’ Summer Coffee Pale Ale marks the second craft beer created in partnership between these two iconic American beverage brands. Last October, Dunkin’ and Harpoon Brewery came together to toast the start of fall by introducing Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter. It proved to be extremely popular among both beer enthusiasts and the brands’ fans alike, with millions of pints served within the regional brewery’s distribution footprint.

Tony Weisman, Dunkin’ U.S. Chief Marketing Officer, says, “The classic tastes of Dunkin’ coffee and Harpoon craft beer make for such an irresistible combination, it was inevitable we’d collaborate again. We saw so much excitement and passion for our partnership last fall, and we’re thrilled to delight our fans who start their day with Dunkin’ coffee and end it by enjoying one of Harpoon’s famous craft beers once more with the introduction of new Summer Coffee Pale Ale.”

“I just depleted the last of my private stash of Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter the other day, so, selfishly, the timing on this launch couldn’t be better,” adds Dan Kenary, Harpoon’s co-founder and CEO. “We ended last year’s baseball season with the intro of Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter, and we’re excited to begin this season with the release of our Summer Coffee Pale Ale. Most importantly, it’s a delicious beer—hoppy and vibrant with a nice coffee character. We’re thrilled to partner with an icon like Dunkin’ again.”
