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 the tails of last year’s Fudgie the Beer success, https://www.Carvel.com drew inspiration from Carvel’s iconic character cake Cookie Puss. Hailing from Planet Birthday, Cookie Puss is a wonderfully charming space alien with cookies for eyes as well as an frozen treats 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 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 several other well-known brands launch beer collaborations since our inaugural partnership, which year’s will be much sweeter. Our goal has become to generate quality beers that our fans will enjoy, as well as ensuring we express the character 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 frozen treats, passing it on a wealthy, 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 New York brands, we couldn’t think of anything more essential than coming together to launch something great during this kind of significant year for us,” said Scott Colwell, President of Carvel. “2019 marks Carvel’s 85th birthday and as we look towards the future, we want to keep giving our loyal fans the opportunity to enjoy the well tested Carvel treats they love, but with an all new twist.”
The Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout will be available wherever Captain Lawrence is sold, all over the east coast, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York City, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Virginia. The Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA are only obtainable in New York 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 probably 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.
