Captain Lawrence Brewing and Carvel® Frozen Treats 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, Carvel Menu 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 and an soft ice cream 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 ice cream cakes.
“Our collaboration with Carvel is a thing we are experiencing loads of fun with — it’s also something which we take seriously as brewers,” said Scott Vaccaro, Founder of Captain Lawrence Brewing. “We’ve seen numerous other well-known brands launch beer collaborations since our inaugural partnership, which year’s will be so much sweeter. Our goal continues to be to produce quality beers that our fans will love, 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 frozen treats, creating 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 consider anything more important than coming together to launch something special during such a significant year for us,” said Scott Colwell, President of Carvel. “2019 marks Carvel’s 85th birthday so that as we look to the future, we wish to keep giving our loyal fans the ability to take advantage of the tried and tested Carvel treats they love, but with a brand new twist.”
The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout will 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, N . C ., South Carolina, Florida and Virginia. The Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA will only be available in New York City State, because of the 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 likely 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.
