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 Locations 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 frozen treats cone nose. Around because 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 we are experiencing 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 several other well-known brands launch beer collaborations since our inaugural partnership, and this year’s is going to be that much sweeter. Our goal has become to generate quality beers which our fans will like, while 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, giving it a wealthy, full-body taste and texture. The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout, brewed with Carvel’s signature chocolate crunchies, is really a chocolate-lover’s dream. It carries heavier notes of cacao and roasted undertones. “As two born and bred New York brands, we couldn’t think about anything more important 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 for the future, we would like to keep giving our loyal fans the ability to enjoy 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 is sold, throughout the east coast, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Ny, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, N . C ., South Carolina, Florida and Virginia. The Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA will only be obtainable in New York City State, as a result of closure of 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 will likely 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.
