Stone Brewing (Escondido, California) has officially announced the release of this year’s edition of Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout, a nerd-fueled collaboration from Drew Curtis of Fark.com, Wil Wheaton, and Greg Koch of Stone Brewing.
Somewhat inspired by the Kentucky Derby Pie that was created in Drew Curtis’ home state, Drew Curtis / Wil Wheaton / Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout is an Imperial Stout that has been brewed with wheat (a nod to actor and web celebrity Wil Wheaton), rye and pecans, and “partially aged in bourbon barrels for an intense thunderclap of unique flavors and aromas.” Weighing in at 11.5% ABV, Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout ultimately comes together to be “an amazingly delicious massive Russian Imperial Stout” that is a true celebration of “the nerd [that lives] in all of us.”
Arriving just in time for the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con, Drew Curtis / Wil Wheaton / Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout officially started rolling out on July 9 and will hang around as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 22 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, Virginia and throughout the rest of Stone Brewing’s nationwide distribution area. Prost!
