To solve the ultimate Boston debate of choosing between an iced coffee or beer, two local companies simply combined the beverages.
In October, Boston-born Harpoon Brewery teamed up with Canton-based Dunkin‘ to create the Harpoon Dunkin’ coffee porter, a malty brew with notes of espresso and dark chocolate. For their second collaboration, the two decided to go the iced coffee route. Boston, meet the Harpoon Dunkin’ summer coffee pale ale.
The limited edition beer mixes a pale ale with the flavors of Dunkin’s original iced coffee, a fan favorite that is consumed in New England year-round. A smattering of hops are used in the production, including Chinook, Denali, Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra, and Azacca, along with Pale Malt, Carapils Malt, and Fawcett Amber Malt.
