Carvel is turning 85 this year and they’re celebrating with the ultimate ice cream collaboration: a milkshake beer. The ice cream company first released The Cookie Puss Milkshake IPA with the Cookie O’Puss Pastry Stout for St. Patrick’s Day, but it was exclusive to New York.
Well, now the rest of us can get in on the fun because Carvel and Captain Lawrence Brewing are re-releasing the Milkshake IPA to more states in honor of the brand’s May anniversary. This special beer is inspired by Carvel’s iconic Cookie Puss cake, and is made with Carvel vanilla and milk sugar to create the “rich and smooth” taste. The company says the beer is available for pre-order now and will hit stores on the east coast next month, from Connecticut to Florida.
But it’s still a limited-edition brew, so even though the rollout is bigger this time around, if you want to sip on it, don’t wait too long. And if you want to celebrate Carvel’s 85 years without catching a buzz, they’re hosting an .85-cent Cone Day at shops across the U.S. on May 2nd.
