Dunkin' Donuts will be giving fans a different kind of buzz when its collaboration with Wormtown Brewery launches later this week.
The Canton-based coffeehouse company is teaming up with the Worcester brewery for DDark Roasted Brew, a new coffee-flavored beer. On Monday, Wormtown officially announced that the limited release will be available at its taproom beginning on Dec. 21.
In celebration of the DDark Roasted Brew flavor, Wormtown is hosting a special party on Thursday. The brews will begin pouring at exactly at 11:28 a.m. that morning to coincide with the winter solstice.
Fans who attend the festivities will be able to pair the new beer with Dunkin’ Donuts’ Double Chocolate Cake Donuts, which will be available to munch on. According to the Facebook event's description, the first 100 guests who stop by will also receive "an exclusive swag bag full of Dunkin’ Donuts and Wormtown Brewery goodies."
Wormtown calls DDark Roasted Brew a "decadent, stout-style beer" that utilizes "full-roasted coffee flavor" which create "a creamy mouth feel." Hailed as the "first-ever beer brewed with Dunkin’ Donuts’Dark Roast coffee beans," the new flavor is exciting collaboration between two popular Bay State brands.
Prior to the announcement on Monday, Wormtown teased its upcoming offering in a series of posts on social media.
