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 Near Me 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 and an ice cream 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 a thing that we are experiencing a lot of fun with — it’s also something 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 this year’s will be so much sweeter. Our goal continues to be to generate quality beers that the fans will like, while ensuring we express the character of both Captain Lawrence and 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 rich, 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 Ny brands, we couldn’t think of anything more valuable than coming together to produce something great during such a significant year for 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 opportunity to enjoy the well tested Carvel treats they love, but with an all new twist.”
The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout is going to be available wherever Captain Lawrence is sold, all across 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 New York State, as a result of closure of 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 year.
Both Cookie Puss and Cookie O’Puss will be exclusive edition brews that are likely to 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.
