Next month the w00t is back and this year there will be a new way to enjoy it.
Stone Brewing Co. will be releasing Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout 2019, an 11.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with rye and wheat malts and pecans before being partially aged in bourbon barrels. In addition, 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 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 will be the sixth time the imperial stout will be available 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 a post on Stone’s Facebook page, Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout 2019 will be packaged in both 22-ounce bottles as well as 12-ounce cans that are scheduled to be released at retailers nationwide in July.
