Captain Lawrence Brewing and Carvel® Frozen Treats 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 of the tails of last year’s Fudgie the Beer success, Carvel 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 as well as an soft 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 ice cream cakes.
“Our collaboration with Carvel is one thing that people are experiencing a thrilling time with — it’s also something which we take seriously as brewers,” said Scott Vaccaro, Founder of Captain Lawrence Brewing. “We’ve seen numerous other well-known brands launch beer collaborations since our inaugural partnership, which year’s will be that much sweeter. Our goal continues to be to generate quality beers which our fans will like, while also ensuring we express the type of both Captain Lawrence and also 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 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 special during such a significant year for people,” said Scott Colwell, President of Carvel. “2019 marks Carvel’s 85th birthday so when we look to the future, we wish to keep giving our loyal fans the opportunity to take pleasure in the tried and tested Carvel treats they love, but with a brand new twist.”
The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout will be available wherever Captain Lawrence comes, all over the east coast, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Ny, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Virginia. The Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA will only be available in Ny State, because of the closure in the TTB, which regulates interstate beer sales, during 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 is going to be limited edition brews that are likely to sell out almost as fast 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.
