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, Carabou 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 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 ice cream cakes.
“Our collaboration with Carvel is something 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 numerous other well-known brands launch beer collaborations since our inaugural partnership, and also this year’s will likely be that much sweeter. Our goal has been to create quality beers that 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 soft ice cream, passing it on a wealthy, 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 consider anything more essential than coming together to produce something great during this type of significant year for people,” said Scott Colwell, President of Carvel. “2019 marks Carvel’s 85th birthday and as we look to the future, we want to keep giving our loyal fans the chance to take advantage of the tried and true Carvel treats they love, but with an all new twist.”
The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout will likely be available wherever Captain Lawrence comes, 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 are only offered in Ny State, as a result of closure in the TTB, which regulates interstate beer sales, during 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 likely be limited 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.
