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 from the tails of last year’s Fudgie the Beer success, https://www.storeholidayhours.org/carvel-menu-prices/ 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 ice cream cakes.
“Our collaboration with Carvel is something that we have 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 a number of other well-known brands launch beer collaborations since our inaugural partnership, which year’s will likely be so much sweeter. Our goal has been to produce quality beers that the fans will love, 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, 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 Ny brands, we couldn’t consider anything more valuable than coming together to produce something great during this type 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 wish to keep giving our loyal fans the opportunity to enjoy the tried and true Carvel treats they love, but with an all new twist.”
The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout will be available wherever Captain Lawrence is sold, throughout 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 are only available in Ny State, as a result of closure from the TTB, which regulates interstate beer sales, through 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 will probably sell out almost as quickly 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.
