One of Stone Brewing Co.’s most famous collaborations is now available at retailers across the country, but this year there is an additional way for fans to enjoy it.
That beer is Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout 2019, an 11.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with English Target hops, flaked rye, wheat malts and pecans, with one-fourth of the beer having been aged in bourbon barrels. However, while previous incarnations of the stout have been available in both 22-ounce bottles and 12-ounce bottles, this year will mark the debut of the beer in six-packs of 12-ounce cans.
The beer is a collaboration between actor Wil Wheaton, Drew Curtis, creator of Fark.com; and Greg Koch, Stone’s ceo, the stout is named after Wheaton’s annual festival celebrating cross-genre geekdom w00tstock.
This year’s incarnation is the sixth time the imperial stout has been released after it debuted in 2013 and the artwork on the newest incarnation has been drawn by artist Alan Davis, who is best known for his work on Uncanny X-Men and Justice League of America comic books. According to the bottle label, the logo depicts a hero who “channels our iconic gargoyle’s guardian powers to battle against the evils of the world of beer.”
According to an email sent to Tenemu, Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout 2019 is packaged in both 22-ounce bottles as well as six-packs of 12-ounce cans that are now available at retailers nationwide.
