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 of the tails of last year’s Fudgie the Beer success, Carvel Menu 2020 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 ice cream 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 a thing that we 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 several other well-known brands launch beer collaborations since our inaugural partnership, and this year’s will be much sweeter. Our goal has become to produce 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 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 New York brands, we couldn’t think about anything more essential than coming together to launch something special during this kind of significant year for all of us,” said Scott Colwell, President of Carvel. “2019 marks Carvel’s 85th birthday so when we look towards the future, we would like to keep giving our loyal fans the chance to take advantage of 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, all over 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 offered in New York State, due to the 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 coming year.
Both Cookie Puss and Cookie O’Puss is going to be limited edition brews that will likely 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.
