Hold on to your pumpkin spice-loving hats, folks. There’s a new (or kind of new) sip making its way into town. For the fifth consecutive year, Dunkin’ has partnered with Harpoon Brewery to usher in fall with a special batch of craft beers.

As with previous years, the collection centers around four brews inspired by Dunkin’s fall menu. This time around, however, the collaboration features four brand new flavors, including a fresh take on the Pumpkin Spiced Latte Ale — which has always anchored the collection.

The re-imagined 5.2 percent ABV Pumpkin Spiced Latte Ale now includes oat milk, which Harpoon says will give drinkers the same creamy mouthfeel as a latte. The co-star of this year’s Box O’ Beer is the 4.6 percent ABV Coffee Roll Cream Ale that saw brewmasters working with the Dunkin’ brand to mix their coffee and signature Coffee Roll item to create a concoction that captures both the cinnamon flavor of the pastry and the distinct taste of roast coffee.

“Introducing the coffee roll and other classic coffee flavors to the latest beers brought our partnership to a level of flavor it’s never been before,” Dunkin’s VP of retail business development Brian Gilbert revealed in a press release.

The fall Harpoon collaboration is rounded out by a 6 percent ABV Cold Brew Coffee Porter — which features “a little of the creamy sweetness” of Dunkin’s regular coffee order, thanks to a splash of dairy — and a 6.2 percent ABV Hazelnut Blonde Stout that pairs a classic stout flavor with “the rich nuttiness with a touch of sweetness that you would expect from your morning Dunkin’ hazelnut coffee” in a golden beer.

Boston-area beer aficionados and fans of the partnership will get to celebrate this year’s Harpoon Dunkin’ Box O’ Beer with a release party at the brewery on Friday, September 16 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Guests will also get the chance to experience the limited edition Dunkin’ Harpoon IPA Donut, introduced last year as the first Dunkin’ offering featuring beer as an ingredient, courtesy of its IPA Jelly.

Can’t make it to the launch party? The Harpoon Dunkin’ Box O’ Beer is available everywhere Harpoon beer is sold. The Pumpkin Spiced Latte Ale is also available as a 6-pack of bottles and on tap at the Harpoon brewery.
