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 Near Me drew inspiration from Carvel’s iconic character cake Cookie Puss. Hailing from Planet Birthday, Cookie Puss is actually a wonderfully charming space alien with cookies for eyes as well as an frozen treats cone nose. Around since 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 one thing that we are having a thrilling time with — it’s also a thing that 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 likely be so much sweeter. Our goal has become to generate quality beers that the fans will enjoy, as well as 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 soft ice cream, creating 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 think about anything more essential than coming together to launch something great during this type of significant year for all of us,” said Scott Colwell, President of Carvel. “2019 marks Carvel’s 85th birthday and as we look towards the future, we would like to keep giving our loyal fans the ability to take pleasure in the well tested Carvel treats they love, but with a new twist.”
The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout is going to be available wherever Captain Lawrence comes, 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 will only be obtainable in New York State, because of the closure from 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 coming year.
Both Cookie Puss and Cookie O’Puss is going to be limited edition brews that will probably 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.
