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 the tails of last year’s Fudgie the Beer success, Carvel Prices drew inspiration from Carvel’s iconic character cake Cookie Puss. Hailing from Planet Birthday, Cookie Puss is really a wonderfully charming space alien with cookies for eyes plus an soft 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 ice cream cakes.
“Our collaboration with Carvel is something that we are experiencing loads of fun with — it’s also something that 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, and also this year’s will likely be much sweeter. Our goal has been to produce quality beers that our fans will enjoy, while also 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 frozen treats, creating a rich, full-body taste and texture. The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout, brewed with Carvel’s signature chocolate crunchies, is actually 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 about anything more important than coming together to produce something special during this type of significant year for all of us,” said Scott Colwell, President of Carvel. “2019 marks Carvel’s 85th birthday so that as we look towards the future, we would like to keep giving our loyal fans the chance to take pleasure in the tried and tested Carvel treats they love, but with a 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, Ny, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, N . C ., South Carolina, Florida and Virginia. The Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA are only offered in New York City 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 season.
Both Cookie Puss and Cookie O’Puss will likely be exclusive edition brews that are likely to 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.
