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 Menu With Prices 2020 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 soft ice cream cone nose. Around because 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 having a lot of fun with — it’s also something that 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, and this year’s will likely be that much sweeter. Our goal continues to be to produce quality beers that the fans will enjoy, while ensuring we express the type 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 soft ice cream, passing it on 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 New York City brands, we couldn’t think about anything more valuable than coming together to launch something great during such a 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 pleasure in 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 is sold, all across the east coast, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Virginia. The Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA will only be obtainable in New York City State, as a result of closure from 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 season.
Both Cookie Puss and Cookie O’Puss will likely 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.
