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 off of the tails of last year’s Fudgie the Beer success, Carvel 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 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 frozen treats cakes.
“Our collaboration with Carvel is one thing that we are experiencing a lot of fun with — it’s also a thing 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 also this year’s is going to be much sweeter. Our goal has become to produce quality beers that our fans will enjoy, as well as ensuring we express the type of both Captain Lawrence as well as 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 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 of anything more essential 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 so that as we look for the future, we want 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 is sold, all across the east coast, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, N . C ., South Carolina, Florida and Virginia. The Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA will only be offered in New York City State, as a result of closure of 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 coming year.
Both Cookie Puss and Cookie O’Puss is going to 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.
