Carvel's Cookie Puss is now beer

First, Carvel made ice cream. Then came ice cream cakes. Many years later, they created a stout based on one of their most celebrated ice cream cakes, Fudgie the Whale. A collaboration with craft microbrewery Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in Elmsford, New York, Fudgie the Beer was released last Father's Day with great success.

Their latest offering? Cookie Puss the beer, a limited-edition "Milkshake IPA."

But, wait, it doesn't end there. There's also Cookie O' Puss the beer. A "Pastry Stout," you know, for St. Patrick's Day.

Both are brewed by Captain Lawrence Brewing and will be available starting on February 26 in select East Coast locations.

Fun fact: Cookie Puss is a space alien born on Planet Birthday (and it's Carvel's 85th birthday this year).

For nostalgia's sake:
