Captain Lawrence Brewing and Carvel® Soft 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 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 actually a wonderfully charming space alien with cookies for eyes as well as an frozen treats 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 a thing that people are having a lot of fun with — it’s also a thing that 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 also this year’s is going to be much sweeter. Our goal has been to generate quality beers which our fans will like, while ensuring we express the character 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 frozen treats, passing it on a wealthy, 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 of anything more important than coming together to launch something special during this kind of significant year for us,” said Scott Colwell, President of Carvel. “2019 marks Carvel’s 85th birthday so that as we look towards the future, we wish to keep giving our loyal fans the chance to enjoy the well 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 comes, all across 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 obtainable in Ny 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 season.
Both Cookie Puss and Cookie O’Puss will be exclusive 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.
