Dunkin’ Donuts makes and sells a lot of products. Known for their coffee that’s able to battle the likes of Starbucks, the doughnut company is now dipping its toes into the craft beer business, collaborating with local breweries for limited release beers.

Dailycoffeenews.com reports that Dunkin Donuts’ first experiment with craft beers was through a partnership with Catawba Brewing Company, with whom they collaborated on the Dunkin’ Punkin’ Brown Ale. This drink included DD’s cold brew and their famous flavoring agents.
“Craft coffee is at the core of our business so we like to brew up something for National Coffee Day that really delights our customers. That’s when we hatched an out-of-the-cup idea – combine craft coffee and craft beer — the perfect pair.
To give it the local flare, we partnered with an established, family-owned brewery with a mission that caught our attention — create unique, small batch beers inspired by our communities and lifestyle.”
Since then, Dunkin’ Donuts has partnered with Wormtown Brewery, a Massachusetts based company, with whom they’re working on a collaboration featuring DD’s dark roasted brew in the style of a stout beer. The drink will be released on December 21st, to celebrate the “darkest day of the year.”
