Spotlight: Stone Farking Wheaton w00t Stout 2016

Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout 2016 Trooper

Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout 2016 has returned to shelves once again July 11th. This year marks the fourth release of this geek collaborative.

In 2013, Greg Koch of Stone Brewing teamed up with Will Wheaton (aka Wesley Crusher from Star Trek: Next Gen) and Fark.com founder Drew Curtis. The collective created Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout, an imperial stout with pecans and rye malt that was partially barrel aged.

2014 brought w00tstout 2.0, and a new actress into the collaboration, Aisha Tyler.

Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout 2016 is a complex beer as it warms up. The imperial stout is softened by the wheat presence, and nuanced by pecan and bourbon soaked oak. A fun break from the lighter beers of summer. Yes, you could cellar it, but keep in mind, it’s quite good now.

This barrel-aged palate-saver has been a favorite among our fans—and us—since its inception in 2013. Pecans, wheat, flaked rye and bourbon-soaked wood provide this whopping, complex superhero version of an imperial stout with a profound complexity that makes it ideal for cellaring—if you can wait that long. Now, we can’t say this beer bestows superpowers, exactly, but your taste buds may just be fooled into believing as much.

Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout 2016 is a 22oz bottle and draft offering. Snag soon, shelves are getting thin nearly a month into the release.

Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares, a new collab

Jester King Buford's Roadside Wares

Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares, a new collaboration with Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co. debuts this month.

The creation of Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares started back in January of 2015 when Jonathan Buford and Patrick Ware of Arizona Wilderness traveled to Jester King on a cold Texas day. In hand, the duo had Arizona pecans and Sonora white wheat. Jester King’s additions included Texas pecans and local white wheat.

The result is a new American wild ale inoculated with Jester King’s coolship’s mixed culture, aged in brandy barrels that once contained Jester King Repose.

Jester King Buford’s Roadside Wares was  “momentum batch” for the brewery – a batch of beer designed to wake up airborne yeast and bacteria in the air for more spontaneously fermented beers to come that season.

Available at Jester King starting March 18th, at 4 pm.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Pecans. Barrel Aged. Brandy.)
Hops: Fuggle

Availability: 750ml Bottles, Draft
Debut: 3/18/16

6.4% ABV
