Captain Lawrence Brewing and Carvel® Ice Cream are thrilled to announce a Cookie O’ Puss Pastry Stout to enjoy for St. Patrick’s Day and a Cookie Puss® Milkshake IPA in celebration of Carvel’s 85th birthday.
Coming off the tails of last year’s Fudgie the Beer success, Carvel Menu drew inspiration from Carvel’s iconic character cake Cookie Puss. Hailing from Planet Birthday, Cookie Puss is a wonderfully charming space alien with cookies for eyes plus an ice cream cone nose. Around considering that the 1970’s, both Cookie Puss and Cookie O’ Puss (his St. Patrick’s Day persona) are vanilla-and-chocolate soft ice cream cakes.
“Our collaboration with Carvel is something we are having a lot of fun with — it’s also something which we take seriously as brewers,” said Scott Vaccaro, Founder of Captain Lawrence Brewing. “We’ve seen a number of other well-known brands launch beer collaborations since our inaugural partnership, and this year’s will be that much sweeter. Our goal continues to be to produce quality beers that our fans will love, as well as ensuring we express the character of both Captain Lawrence as well as the Carvel cakes that inspire these new brews.”
Hitting store shelves on February 26, the Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA is brewed with Carvel’s legendary vanilla ice cream, passing it on a rich, full-body taste and texture. The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout, brewed with Carvel’s signature chocolate crunchies, is actually a chocolate-lover’s dream. It carries heavier notes of cacao and roasted undertones. “As two born and bred Ny brands, we couldn’t consider anything more essential than coming together to produce something great during this kind of significant year for us,” said Scott Colwell, President of Carvel. “2019 marks Carvel’s 85th birthday so when we look to the future, we want to keep giving our loyal fans the chance to enjoy the tried and tested Carvel treats they love, but with a brand new twist.”
The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout is going to be available wherever Captain Lawrence is sold, all over the east coast, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York City, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Virginia. The Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA are only available in Ny State, as a result of closure from the TTB, which regulates interstate beer sales, throughout the government shutdown. Both Carvel and Captain Lawrence are excited to distribute the Milkshake IPA more widely for Carvel’s 85th birthday later this year.
Both Cookie Puss and Cookie O’Puss will be exclusive edition brews that are likely to sell out almost as soon as last year’s Fudgie the Beer collaboration. Carvel and Captain Lawrence fans with FOMO, and within driving distance neqync the Elmsford Brewery can pre-order both beers from CPtheBeer.com until February 27th, for local pick-up.
