Carvel has teamed up with New York brewery Captain Lawrence for this special brew. Buzz60’s Nathan Rousseau Smith has the (ice cream) scoop.

They say you can’t have your cake and eat it too. But in the case of Carvel’s legendary Fudgie the Whale ice cream cake, from today until Father’s Day, you can have your Fudgie and drink it too.

In an official collaboration that is sure to excite many an inner child (assuming that inner child is 21), Carvel—which can trace its origins back to Hartsdale in New York’s Hudson Valley—teamed up with the nearby Captain Lawrence Brewing Company for Fudgie the Beer, a 6-percent ABV stout that “included Carvel Signature Crunchies and Fudge in the mash, as well as Carvel Fudge in the tank,” according to brewery founder and brewmaster Scott Vaccaro. “There’s a whole bunch of Carvel chocolate in this beer, and it works so well. The beer is a touch roasty, with sweet chocolate undertones and aroma of chocolate, fudge and hops.”
