Fudgie the Whale is back. But this time it's not just a "whale of a cake," it's a whale of a beer.
On Wednesday, Carvel announced a stout brewed with chocolate crunchies and fudge, aptly named Fudgie the Beer. The stout is a limited-edition Father's Day collaboration with craft microbrewery Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in Elmsford, New York.
The novelty brew is said to have "smooth cocoa notes with a roasted crunchies finish" and would pair well with "roasted or smoked foods as well as chocolate or espresso desserts." If you have a "whale of a dad" and need to get your hands on this special beer, you'll have to head to New York state, as it's only available at the Captain Lawrence Beer Hall. (If you want some for real, be sure to check when it will be available again. The first batch sold out yesterday evening.)
I have just one question: Why, oh why isn't this an ale? It could have been a whALE of a beer.
For old times' sake, here's the original ad for the Fudgie the Whale cake narrated by Tom Carvel himself:
