New Belgium Brewing Co. and Ben & Jerry’s are pooling their efforts again.
The two companies will be collaborating on Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ale, a beer inspired by one of the ice cream maker’s most popular releases. According to a press release, $50,000 of the proceeds to be donated to Protect Our Winters (POW), a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about the effects of climate change.
“We are excited to be partnering once again with the good folks at Ben & Jerry’s and POW,” said Jenn Vervier, director of sustainability at New Belgium, in a press release.
“The beer in development tastes amazing and we look forward to talking about climate change and climate action. With the upcoming election and a new administration, year two is even more important than the first round.”
New Belgium and Ben & Jerry’s first teamed up last year to produce New Belgium + Ben & Jerry’s Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale, a 6.3 percent ABV brown ale that was released in both 12-ounce and 22-ounce bottles.
According to a press release, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ale will be released in the fall, and a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) indicates the beer will be released in both 12- and 22-ounce bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional information concerning packaging, a release date and brewing details was not immediately returned.
